Here you can find answers to all of your most commonly asked questions relating to LVT & Click flooring.
A lot of different terms are thrown around when it comes to vinyl floor coverings. Many, however, are actually interchangeable names for the same thing. LVT simply stands for ‘luxury vinyl tiles’, which is sometimes called 'vinyl flooring' or even 'PVC flooring'. ‘Sheet vinyl’ and linoleum are typically available in rolls and glued to the surface, while LVT flooring comes in easy -to-manipulate planks or tiles which can either be installed “floating” (i.e. glue-less) or “glued down”.
Vinyl Click flooring is a type of Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) which locks together. This flooring features all the benefits of regular LVT – durability, warmth and water resistance – with the added benefit of a quick and easy installation.
No. If your subfloor is perfectly level, an underlay is not needed. If that is not the case, we strongly recommend using our Forbo vinyl underlay. Keep in mind that they act as an additional sound barrier as well.
Always err on the side of caution and order slightly more than needed to cover material wastage – we recommend 10% and more for smaller areas and awkward shaped rooms. It is possible to replace tiles of Allura Click which have been accidentally damaged and having the original tiles from the same batch will make this possible.
The tiles and planks in our Allura Click and Enduro Click collections can be easily removed and replaced if one should be damaged, we have a YouTube video that walks you through the process. Watch the video below:
An expansion gap of 5mm minimum to the perimeter of the room and any fixed objects, is required when installing Marmoleum and Allura Click products, to allow the product to expand and contract with fluctuating temperatures, preventing the Flooring buckling or disconnecting from one another.
