Different Installation Procedures about laminate flooring and vinyl flooring
There is a world of difference between installing laminate flooring boards and gluing down vinyl sheets. Laminate flooring systems, with their snap-together locking mechanisms, are designed for the do-it-yourselfer; the boards are easy to cut and fit together like pieces of a puzzle. Laying a sheet vinyl floor, on the other hand, requires accurate measurements, careful cutting and glue-spreading skill.
Installing vinyl tiles is not as demanding as installing sheet vinyl, but unless they are self-sticking, you still have to work with messy glue. Vinyl planks fit together to form a floating floor in the same way as laminate boards, but because they are more flexible, getting them to lock together takes more effort.
