LVT Floor Preparation

Don’t Let Your Floor Lay the Foundation for Failure: Perfect Prep for LVT Success

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) offers stunning looks and impressive durability, but a flawless installation starts with a flawless foundation. Here’s why proper subfloor preparation is key to your LVT’s success:

  • Smooth Sailing: Ensure a level, even surface for a seamless installation and a more polished final look. Unevenness can telegraph through the LVT, creating an uneven feel and potentially damaging the tiles.
  • Moisture Matters: Prevent warping and ensure long-lasting performance by addressing any moisture concerns in the subfloor. A moisture meter can help you check for potential issues.
  • Clean Sweep: Start with a clean, debris-free subfloor to avoid any bumps or imperfections under the LVT. Dust, dirt, or old adhesive residue can compromise the bond between the LVT and the subfloor.
  • The Right Base: Depending on your existing subfloor, additional steps might be needed. This could involve plywood underlayment, self-leveling compound, or vapour barrier installation.

By prioritising subfloor preparation, you’ll ensure your LVT looks its best and performs flawlessly for years to come. Contact us today to discuss your LVT project and get expert advice on subfloor preparation!
