Vinyl flooring has many practical advantages over the laminate and wood flooring. But everything has its advantages and also some disadvantages. From the feedback of my customers I see that the biggest disadvantage of vinyl flooring is that the dry-back vinyl used for gluing is inconvenient when it comes to preparing of the surface underneath it. So in this article we will look closer on the problem of preparing such surface.
Correctly prepared surface under dry-back vinyl must be perfectly narrow and smooth, because vinyl planks will copy every little difference. If you will forget a small sand grain you can be sure you will feel it in the end in a way of small bulge. Definitely never underestimate the perfect preparation of the surface. If you don’t trust your skills enough then let it to professionals.
Currently we are getting across with two terms when we are choosing PVC flooring – the PVC flooring and vinyl flooring. My customers are usually confused and that is why I will explain it a little.
As a floor assembler I firstly encountered only the term PVC flooring. So it was a classic pvc floor rolled into the rolls of various width from 1.5 m to 4 m. We still encounter these types of floors in schools, hospitals, bureaus and so on.
Later as the technology forwarded in the manufacturing of the PVC flooring there started to be used a new term for such floors – the vinyl flooring. Manufacturers marked by this name “vinyl flooring” mostly PVC flooring not sold in rolls but in planks of various dimensions and thicknesses = 1393 x 185 mm; 900 x 150 mm; etc (or squares 300 x 300 mm; 450 x 450 mm; etc.). Therefore the PVC flooring (poly-vinyl-chloride) and vinyl flooring is basically the same when it comes to material composition. It is a synthetic material in both cases. But because there was created a new product (instead of rolls the planks) the manufacturers needed to differentiate these two products from each other and that is why they started to call the planks products as vinyl, although we could call it a floor pvc planks. Basically it is just a word play.
On the seminar of the Guild of the flooring workers was presented one of the most accurate measuring methods for humidity in the foundation. It is more demanding for time but on contrary more accurate.
