The entire sheet of vinyl can be glued to the subfloor or the sheet can be glued around the perimeter only. Loose lay installation is best for some applications. Modified loose lay vinyl is kept in place in heavy traffic areas with double-sided tape. The flooring can be installed over some existing floors. Also, plywood can be used as an underlayment. The surface should be sanded until it is smooth and level since vinyl sheets are so thin that imperfections will show through. Typical standard vinyl flooring lasts 5 to 10 years while the best brands last 25 years or more. The durability of the floor is determined by the thickness of the sheet and the wear layer.
