What types of subfloors are suitable for vinyl plank installation?

Fear not, dear homeowners, for we at Dreyco Flooring & Design are here to guide you through the process of selecting the perfect subfloor for your vinyl plank flooring installation. Let's explore the ideal subfloor materials to ensure a seamless and long-lasting flooring upgrade for your home.

  1. Plywood Subfloors: A Solid Foundation

Plywood subfloors are among the most compatible surfaces for vinyl plank installation. The key is ensuring that the plywood is smooth, flat, and free of any imperfections. We recommend using plywood with a minimum thickness of 3/4 inch for optimal stability. Prior to installation, it's crucial to thoroughly clean and level the plywood subfloor to prevent any unevenness that could affect the integrity of the vinyl planks.

  1. Concrete Subfloors: Stability and Durability

Concrete subfloors are another excellent choice for vinyl plank flooring, especially in areas prone to moisture such as basements and bathrooms. Before installation, it's essential to check for any cracks or moisture issues in the concrete and address them accordingly. Additionally, we recommend applying a moisture barrier to prevent any potential water damage to the vinyl planks over time.

  1. Existing Hardwood or Laminate Flooring: A Convenient Option

If you're looking to update your existing hardwood or laminate flooring, vinyl plank installation can be a convenient and cost-effective solution. As long as the existing flooring is in good condition and level, vinyl planks can be installed directly over them with the proper preparation. However, it's essential to ensure that the surface is clean, smooth, and free of any debris or adhesive residue before laying down the vinyl planks.

  1. Tile Subfloors: Leveling is Key

Tile subfloors can also serve as a suitable base for vinyl plank installation, but proper preparation is crucial to achieve optimal results. It's essential to inspect the tile subfloor for any cracks, unevenness, or loose tiles that could impact the stability of the vinyl planks. In some cases, applying a self-leveling compound may be necessary to create a smooth and level surface for installation.
