What to know about luxury vinyl flooring installation

Wood, stone, ceramic, and concrete look luxury vinyl can be installed anywhere in your home, and this adaptability is one of the reasons this floor covering is so popular.

Direct Custom Flooring offers a wide variety of luxury vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring in Tavares, FL. When you visit our showroom, you can find standard, waterproof, textured luxury vinyl flooring styles.


Luxury vinyl floors are available in designs created for three installation types: loose lay, floating floor, and glue-down. Therefore, luxury vinyl planks and tiles can be installed over any subfloor and most existing hard-surface flooring.

Glue-down brands, which are bonded to the subfloor with liquid glue, are ideal for high-traffic areas.??

Floating floor

A majority of homeowners choose luxury vinyl flooring that is made for floating floor installation. Instead of attaching to a subfloor, planks and tiles click and lock together so a self-supporting floor can be laid over a cement slab or any other level surface.

Underlayment that can include a moisture barrier is placed beneath these brands.

Loose lay

If you are hesitant about installing new floors because you may be moving soon, loose-lay vinyl flooring is for you. Loose-lay luxury vinyl flooring brands, which butt together, are thicker than the floating floor and glue-down brands.

LVT and LVP flooring feature a rubber backing layer that uses weight and friction to help keep them in place.
