Vinyl flooring question

I may have posted this in the wrong place, but here goes...

We want to have plank vinyl put down, does anyone know if I will have to glue it down or just snap it together like on a regular install in a house?

Thanks

Tom

That would be the manufacturers recommendation for their product.

I installed Allure flooring that comes from HD and it floats. Been down for a few years and still looks fantastic.

Did you use anything under it? Just snap together? By the way it looks great!

Just FYI...there are 2 types of Allure: Ultra and the original.

Ultra is a snap fit. The original (like in the photos above/grey stripes) use a self adhesive edge to bind planks together.

There is no need to place an under layer and it will cover gaps and cracks up to a quarter inch wide before need to worry about filling.

We have used the original type in 2 rooms in the studs and stucco house and love it...so, we plan to replace the RV's carpet with it in the future.

One warning...if any water gets under the Allure, it will not really ever dry out. So, we used silicon caulk to waterproof the edge where any moisture might enter.

Best luck

Any comments regarding the original allure vs. Allure ultra in RV applications?

No under layer on mine, has been down for several years now and works great. We liked it so much we put some in our bedroom. Over the concrete slab it does not work as well. Under furniture it will edge-lift, very annoying. I guess at some point I'll have to tear it out of there. There are other user reports on issues going over concrete, especially in basements.

The floor is designed to float over the subfloor, so you don't want heavy furniture on it or seal the edges so it can't move - expand and contract with temperature variations, much like a click-lock laminate flooring. This keeps it laying flat.

Like I say, great in the RV but not so much in the S&B.

I can't comment any various types, I used the Allure from home depot, they are the retailer for it, has a glue strip on 2 sides, they stick together. Since it's done in pieces, or planks, the cutting and fitting installation is quite easy. What is surprising is the adhesive is so strong you'll ruin the tile trying to separate them once stuck - but it will un-glue itself under furniture when applied over concrete. Very odd.

Vinyl flooring question

When we put it down on the drivers side slide, the slide keeps hitting the floor a causing it to buckle up. Help,

The problem is under the slide there is a black plastic piece that block air and it slides across the floor as it moves in and out with the slide. The piece as gouges that scratch the wood floor.

Has anyone replaced that piece?
