The first thing you're gon na want to do is make sure you have a subfloor, which is the surface underneath your final flooring that it's adequate for supporting your vinyl. Now you don't need underlayment, as you can see, there's no underling that they were putting underneath this, but we do need to do is make sure that it's nice and flat what I did this is tongue and groove plywood. I took the belt sander and I sanded looking for any high spots and I need to be taken off and then also filled in any holes. So you can see here here the screw holes that were pretty sunk into the floor.
I fill those with rock-hard putty. Let me show you the product I used, there's the rock-hard putty that we use. This is water putty I'll, put a link in the description to this exact stuff. It works really well for filling in any holes or gaps that are little dips in the floor and giving you a nice surface to support your vinyl. The way the contractor told me basically with the with vinyl, it tends to follow the floor, so you know make sure that there's not any dips, because over time the vinyl is gon na want to follow the shape of the floor so make sure you have good Subfloor and then, depending on what type of vinyl you have mine, has to work from.
So if I was looking at the room like this it'd be the far back left corner and work, my first row all the way across and then and then continue to do that same order. Because of the way this tongue and groove works here has to start on this side and work this way, so we'll go ahead and snap this next piece in place here, you have to just basically lift it I'll give you a close-up here for a second. This is the tongue sticking out here on this side, and this side has kind of the opposite, so you lift it and snap it in place and then drop it down like. So let me see that set this here right there. You know I just kind of rock this: this is a pretty thin product.
They have some vinyl plank, that's a little bit thicker. It doesn't make a lot of noise when it snaps together. We want us fuel. That'S seen here make sure, there's no like weird spots where it's pushing up. If it is pushing up, I found you just rock it up and then push it hard in it rock it back down again. This tends to make it flat. Okay. So now we have this remaining section here. We're gon na have to cut a piece you wan na pay attention to your staggers. So this is a staggered here and according to the instructions for this particular product, you want this stagger to be at least six inches and we have seven and a half. So we're good.
