Easy Diy Interlocking Vinyl Plank Flooring
Interlocking vinyl plank flooring is latest big thing in do-it-yourself glueless flooring. Planks are made to look like wood. But they have easy installation of a floating vinyl floor. Self-locking boards generally do not even have a moisture protection, but can go over a hard, flat surface. First, Remove trim around edge of floor with a hammer and crowbar. Keep it intact and set it aside.
Interlocking vinyl plank flooring along wall where you want to start, connect them at ends. Set shims between tiles and wall, creating a hole, then floor to move with climate change. Put all full planks that will fit. Cut last as needed, by scoring it along a carpenter’s square, and then break it along scored line.
Set next course in place by pressing on edge of plank at a downward angle toward edge of interlocking vinyl plank flooring on previous course, press until they lock, then setting of plank down. Continue over floor, of course with course. Start each course at opposite end of floor as previous one, so ends of planks do not line up. Cut ends of each course with your razor knife if necessary. Cut planks from final course, so that they will fit against wall with a 1/4-inch hole. Reinstall your floor trim, using trim nails and your hammer. Trim will cover holes.
