Vinyl planks are plastic boards covered with a finishing coat, often designed to mimic the appearance of wood. Vinyl planks can withstand a large amount of weight and are resistant to the shocks and hazards of daily life. There are even anti-slip models ideal for bathrooms, as we show here since they are resistant to humidity and are very easy to clean. They are laid using the same method as parquet or laminate flooring. In addition to these benefits, they are easy to cut to size. Using a box cutter to lay the flooring, you will need vinyl planks, a measuring tape, a pencil, a rubber mallet, a tree-square, spacer wedges, and a profile gauge.
It is recommended to leave the vinyl planks in the room for two to three days so that they expand or retract according to the humidity in the room laying vinyl plank flooring is done in two steps: step: 1: the preparation start by sweeping the floor with a Broom or a vacuum to remove dust and dirt calculate the surface to cover and the number of planks needed, add a margin of 10 % for cuttings and adjustments. Step 2, laying the vinyl plank flooring start by placing the spacer wedges along the wall, place the first plank in the corner nearest to the door place the first plank, dug side facing the wall so that the following planks can easily be clicked into place thanks to.
Their tongue and groove locking system slot the next plank in by inserting it at a 30-degree angle, then press it on the floor, use the rubber mallet to fix the planks together. Once you reach the end of a row, you'll have to cut the final plank. So that it fits snugly in place overlap the final board on to the previous one and then turn it over to remark on the part which overlaps draw the line to cut along. You can use a cutter and then split the planks on the mark.
You've made to begin the second row cut the first blank in half so that it is staggered to the first row to do this measure and mark the halfway point of the plank with the tree-square and then cut lay the half blank cut side against the Wall to ensure the following planks will be perfectly aligned here. We lay the planks in staggered rows, also known as a quincunx pattern to avoid leaving any space between the joints, the flooring can be laid in more intricate or more simple patterns. According to your tastes, begin, the third row with a whole plank then lay the rest of the flooring.
