Vinyl Plank Flooring | Expert Installation Techniques from Harrow Floor Gallery

At Harrow Floor Gallery, vinyl plank flooring is one of our specialties, beloved for its durability, aesthetic versatility, and ease of maintenance. In this blog, Chuck Harrow, owner of Harrow Floor Gallery, shares his insights on his team’s meticulous approach to installing vinyl plank flooring, emphasizing the importance of proper subfloor preparation to ensure longevity and optimal performance.

So here at Harrow Floor Gallery, vinyl plank is a popular option. This is because vinyl plank is an excellent choice for both residential and commercial spaces due to its ability to mimic the look of natural wood or stone while offering enhanced durability and water resistance. However, successful installation of vinyl plank flooring hinges on protecting it from moisture, which can undermine the integrity of the flooring over time.

To risk moisture contamination, we begin the installation procedure by placing the vapor barrier. This layer is made of plastic and serves as a barrier or wall between the epoxy molecules of the planks and the subfloor to prevent wetting of the former by the latter. It is a type of step which guarantees that the coverage of the floor remaining conservative and have no impacts from sub levels of moisture which change their levels from time to time according to the environmental factors.

In the areas that such existing floorings like Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT) or limestone tile are present, there may not even be a need for vapor barriers. Tiles are quite low permeable and can serve as a sufficient base of moisture-resistant vinyl plank in some circumstances. When there is a need to composite a smooth surface, laying vinyl over tile is the ideal method for this special use; such an advantage can be realized by utilizing new ecofriendly products.

We not only lay it, but also we are knowledgeable in integrating the subflooring dynamics into the overall flooring project. This consists of identifying and reviewing the existing floor condition and characterizing the activities that need to be done prior to the installation. For example, an analysis is conducted on the floor area where we have to install the plank over the tile to establish the condition of the tile in ensuring that it is able to securely support the planks without shifting or causing unevenness all the way known as false setting.

Here’s a glimpse into what vinyl plank flooring looks like once installed: it transforms spaces with its clean, modern look while offering the resilience needed for high-traffic areas.
