Shaw Vinyl Plank | Vinyl Raised Flooring

As the name suggests, peelable vinyl raised floors (self-adhesive PVC raised floors) are made from small tiles or planks that are attached directly to the surface of the raised floor. Not only are they very cheap, but almost anyone, even children, can install them. Modern stick wood raised floors can mimic many standard raised floor types, including tile, stone, wood, parquet raised floors, and even abstract patterns. You can also create visually interesting patterns by mixing different tile patterns together in larger paving areas.
This type of raised floor is easy to install and inexpensive, but how to install PeelandStick vinyl raised floor yourself? Here we guide you step-by-step in placing peel-and-stick PVC raised floors in your house:
Step 1 Measure the length and width of the area where the raised floor will be installed. Multiply the width by the length to find the area in square feet, which will determine how much raised floor you need. If you need extra material or replacement squares, add 10% to this number to account for the excess.
Step 2 Use a spirit level to make sure the raised floor is level. If the bottom layer is a horizontal raised floor and linoleum or vinyl is currently installed, the new tiles can be installed directly onto the existing raised floor. However, if a tile, parquet or other raised floor has been installed, the raised floor material must be removed. Use a crowbar to pry up the old material, then use a solvent to remove the old adhesive.
Step 3 Clean the entire basement raised floor surface. If you're installing a new raised floor over existing vinyl or linoleum, clean the raised floor thoroughly before you start installing new tiles.
Step 4 Find the center of the room using the length and width measurements. Place four peel-and-stick tiles at this point on the raised floor, with all four corners aligned at the center point. Start working outwards from these four tiles, placing them around to expand the square. This will keep the tiles aligned, but you will need to check the alignment regularly with a tape measure.
Step 5 When you get to the wall, you may need to cut squares of the tile so that it fits snugly in place. Measure the width from the wall to the last tile placed. Take a tile and cut it to size with a razor or utility knife.
Step 6 Apply colored sealer to any cracks or areas where the tile is not lining up properly. Remove excess sealant with a clean dry cloth. Allow the sealant to dry completely before using the raised floor.
