Installation method by gluing LVT flooring.

Vinyl panels are becoming increasingly popular due to their durability, water resistance and modern design. Unlike laminated flooring, LVT can be simply glued as an alternative to classic assembly as a floating flooring. This type is known as dryback vinyl panels.

When choosing a vinyl floor, pay attention to the following: how it is installed, the condition of the surface, whether there are any heating systems installed in the foundation, how much of the floor is used, the layout of the room, and its exposure to sunlight.

Vinyl floors are also available in dryback versions – as adhesive boards or tiles. Despite a very low thickness (2.5-3 mm), the quality of the top layer is as good as for click floors. Dryback is gaining popularity partly thanks to its very attractive price and excellent acoustic properties.

Installing using a glue requires time, experience, accuracy and high preparation of the surface. Even a millimetre high bump on the floor will protrude, and even the smallest detail (such as an unevenly smoothed joint) will be visible. For good results the surface should be as even as a table. After spreading a thin layer of the glue on the floor, wait a few minutes, lay 2 or 3 rows of boards and then repeat the entire process. The floor can be used after 24h.

Alternatively, you can use an assembly mat with a self-adhesive layer. The mat can compensate for small point irregularities on the surface, as well as speed up and facilitate installation, and, unlike the adhesive, allows the floor to be used as soon as it is installed.
