Vinyl floor is very different than it was even a couple decades ago. Today it is able to be fashioned into almost anything. Most notably, many are embracing the vinyl plank that is imbued with any variety of very real and authentic looking wood grain patterns and colors.
Vinyl flooring fitters will do everything from measure spaces to provide some input on colors and designs to complement a room to purchasing the materials, and then finally fitting the vinyl into the space. It involves more than just tossing it on the ground to call it a floor, though.
While vinyl flooring is fairly straight forward to install, not everyone on the planet has the inclination nor the ability and skill to handle installing it. Instead of doing it yourself, you hire vinyl floor fitters.
Vinyl needs to be secured down in place using a glue or adhesive. Now, many products come with self-adhesive. Simply pull off the film and stick it on the ground for a floor. Other products require the addition of glue applied before setting the vinyl securely in place.
This, of course, is where most people would rather just hire someone. There are two great reasons to hire vinyl fitters. The first is that the vinyl fitters will have been trained in all things having to do with sub-flooring, concrete, and other backing materials.
They may remove old carpeting, padding, and replace the sub-floor if necessary. In addition, let them have at it to get the look seamless where crooked boards sit or where baseboards run the circumference of a room.
The other way that they may be helpful is in hauling off the old flooring that was in place prior. This value-added service is provided by most, as a residential customer or even a business will not be permitted to toss old flooring in the garbage.
In addition, while vinyl is meant to be both versatile and to save money, it allows enough slack in the budget to hire a vinyl fitter. That’s the main benefit of having chosen a budget-friendly flooring option.
Those are just some of the considerations to make when buying vinyl flooring. Always think about the installation. Though, you could also just stick vinyl on right on top of the old existing flooring. Though, again, look at how that may impact the look of the space compared to other rooms.
