Vinyl Installation

Once you've chosen the perfect vinyl flooring for your home, it's time to have Bay Carpet and Flooring install it for you! While the process is relatively simply, it's still helpful to know what to expect. Read on to learn more about the process.

Preparing for installation

You will first need to remove any furniture from the room. Hiring professional movers can be helpful, especially if you have heavy items. Next, you'll need to remove your old flooring. Finally, you'll need to make sure your subfloor is smooth and flat.

During and after installation

Vinyl can be installed in three ways. Full spread installation involves a complete application of adhesive across the entire subfloor. Perimeter-adhered installation is when the adhesive is only applied to seams and perimeters. A floating installation is when the vinyl locks into place without the use of any adhesives. The installation method will largely depend on the type of vinyl you have chosen. Our professional installers will be able to advise and inform you. The method will also determine how long the project will take.

After the installation, establish good ventilation, especially if you are sensitive to dust and odors. Then, check out our useful care and maintenance tips to keep your vinyl looking great!
