The required skill set to install luxury vinyl tiles is exactly the same as for laminate flooring
- patience to work around the doors frame after undercutting with a jamb saw
- problem solving / planning to fit LVT around difficult to reach areas (and all the other skils I bring to the job).
Luxury Vinyl Tiles are idea for kitchens and bathrooms because water will not make the floor swell or distort, unlike laminate or wooden flooring. NJRflooring has just bought a very specialised tool for installing LVT, a guillotine which makes perfect straight line cuts. This is very useful because LVTs. unlike laminates, do not need a 10mm expansion gap around the floor. It is recommended to have a 2mm gap, just in-case the building moves. This tiny gap can be filled with a clear or coloured sealant and is almost invisible. The guillotine, imported from the USA has a hardened chrome vanadium tool steel blade that males perfect clean cuts. improving further the quality of your luxury vinyl tile floor installation.
