Luxury vinyl floor covering easy fit click

Luxury vinyl flooring can be an excellent way to transform any room. Here’s a little about LVT flooring..

Aqua Woods Luxury click vinyl tile (LVT) or plank flooring is an industry innovation, luxury vinyl flooring with an installer friendly Uniclic system. Suitable for all areas of the home,except conservatories. This luxury click vinyl is easy to maintain, extremely durable and significantly reduces drumming sound caused by walking as well as being waterproof and perfect for bathrooms/kitchens.

To provide definition to the floor each plank has micro bevelled edges on all four sides resulting in a subtle groove between each board. A natural embossed wood texture is applied to the surface to provide an authentic feel which adds true character a feel to the flooring.

The ‘Uniclic’ click system which is classically found in laminate floors is making it’s way into other flooring uses. That really is a good thing as the patented click system is by far one of the best and widely acclaimed within the industry. LVT can now be installed even easier than traditional laminate flooring as no underlay Blonde oak LVT clickis needed ! Certain types can even be glued down for that extra firm fix and feel.

The key with this and as with any floor covering is the sub-floor preparation. This ideally should be carried out by an experienced eye using the correct materials. As with any floor covering, the sub-floor must be sound, even and dry. LVT is waterproof but should not be considered as a moisture barrier in any way.

It comes with a 20 year domestic guarantee or 10 year commercial guarantee. This stuff is ideal for shops, hair studio’s, galleries etc, as well as busy households. Differing from traditional LVT products no adhesive is needed as the floor does not need to be glued down, Aqua wood LVP blonde oak flooringsimply click, making it the perfect choice for commercial use or domestic as it can be used instantly! Although, as mention, the sub-floor must be flat!

If you’re in the market for wood style floor coverings and are unsure, well certainly consider LVT. With a large colour selection and appealing cost, it really is a hard one to over look!

    Hi – do you recommend using an underlay with this type of LVT board?

  • Hi David,

    Yes. There’s specif underlay for this type of flooring. It’s often around 1.6 mm thick with a semi adhesive coating (Supplied by your retailer).

    Regards,

    Wes.

    Thanks Wes – the retailer doesn’t have any unfortunately! Not sure if links work here but it’s this stuff I’m buying: http://www.wickes.co.uk/Westco-Aswan-Limed-Oak-Luxury-Vinyl-Flooring/p/141397

    Would Polyflor Vinyl Loc be what I need, or could I get away with something cheaper like this? http://www.floormaker.co.uk/store/accessories/pe-foam-underlay/c990017

    Your expertise is much appreciated.

  • Hi David,

    The Wickes vinyl loc may well not require an underlay. The manufacturer may have produced a specific backing board that doesn’t require one. The best thing you can do is try and read the manufacturers installation guide.

    The Westco foam underlay is not advised. It will be too spongy to use under a click vinyl (In my experience anyway). Typically the type of underlay would be something like this http://www.berryalloc.com/uk/en/Accessories/Vinyl-Planks/Underlay. It is a very dense thin underlay with very low compression.

    As mentioned, some vinyl loc products are constructed with a rigid back board, but do check the guidelines regardless.

    I hope that’s of some help.

    Regards,

    Wes.
