Glue down and vinyl adhesives.
When using adhesives with vinyl flooring, you need to have a perfectly smooth surface to begin with. This is because the glue will pull up overtime and you will see the ripples from the old surface. You can lay vinyl over most other flooring but, we suggest asking us first. This is because the prepping of your flooring is the most important part of vinyl and this way you will not get bubbles or seam breaks down overtime.
If an underlayment is required the lauan plywood is the standard but, we love the quality of the birch plywood. The choice ultimately lies with your vinyl lifespan warranty. Birch plywood will last as long as the 15+ warranties, whereas the lauan plywood works great for the 5-15 warranties.
The glue that we use varies on the selection of vinyl that you choose. We normally stick to Armstrong’s high performance epoxy glues because it holds up great compared to other adhesives.
