Commercial Grade Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring in Seattle


Commercial-grade vinyl plank flooring is made with a heavy urethane-based wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, dents, and stains better than wood or ceramic. It provides a warm feel to any commercial space with realistic wood grains and hand/wired-scraped textures.

With commercial-grade luxury vinyl plank flooring, one can enjoy the beautiful wooden appearance with the durability and easy maintenance of vinyl. This quality flooring option is what makes vinyl plank flooring an excellent choice for all commercial needs.

Our Commercial Grade Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring Installation Process

Floor Preparation

Commercial grade luxury vinyl plank flooring can most times be laid directly over existing flooring, but where there are any high spots, these should be sanded down to create an even surface for the new floor. Creating a flat, smooth surface as the underlayment for the vinyl plank flooring is very important.

When laying vinyl plank flooring over a plywood subfloor, all depressions will be filled in with a floor-leveling compound and any existing flooring will be removed.

Trim Jambs and Casing

Trim jambs and casing are important to ensure that one can slide the vinyl plank flooring underneath doors. The casing is functional as well as decorative, with the main purpose to surround all doors and cover any space or gap.

Laying Out the Tile

One can start by laying the flooring along one wall, working row by row. It is important to start on one end of the room, measure across to the other side, and divide that measurement by the width of one vinyl plank.

Vinyl planks can easily be trimmed to fit the space using any sort of blade, making them easily adjustable unlike other flooring options like tile that require more complex tools. The first row can be completed by interlocking the tongue and groove connectors and aligning the seams.

Spread the Adhesive or Vinyl Tile Glue

A thinly spread layer of recommended adhesive will be applied to the floor under the commercial vinyl planks using a trowel and spread as evenly as possible. From here the vinyl planks will be installed immediately after spreading the glue.

Position Tiles with Spacers

The recommended expansion gap for commercial-grade luxury vinyl plank flooring is a minimum of ¼ inch. The more significant the space, the larger the expansion gap should be, as the floor needs more space to expand and contract with temperature changes.

Set The Tiles with a Roller

A vinyl floor roller can be used to apply extra pressure to each vinyl plank to ensure they bond to the floor surface and into the glue. This can be done by starting the rolling process in the middle and working toward the edges.

Spread The Grout

Grout adds durability and rigidity to vinyl and creates a more authentic look and feel to one’s vinyl flooring. In addition, applying grout to commercial vinyl plank flooring will provide an additional defense against moisture damage to the floor.

Types of Commercial LVT Floorings We Offer

A Commercial Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

Commercial luxury vinyl tile flooring is highly durable, and easy to maintain, providing a mirror image of natural materials, but with the durability to tolerate commercial environments. With this flooring option, one can get the look of stone and ceramic tile without the high costs or complex installation process.

Commercial Vinyl Sheet Flooring

Commercial vinyl sheet flooring is a durable flooring material made from a combination of natural and synthetic polymer materials. Found in spaces such as hotel lobbies and office foyers, schools, and hospitals, they are increasing in popularity because of their design and material innovations.

This flooring option is durable and easy to clean and allows businesses to cover large spaces. Commercial vinyl sheet is seen as more affordable compared to vinyl planks and tiles due to their low cost and easy installation process.

Commercial Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT)

Commercial-grade vinyl composite tiles are made of colored polyvinyl chloride (PVC) chips shaped into solid sheets. Commercial vinyl composition tiles are easy to maintain, durable, and offer multiple layout pattern options. This flooring option is ideal for high-traffic areas such as retail, schools, and commercial spaces.

Underlying Floor Specification and Installation Considerations

Before installing commercial-grade luxury vinyl plank flooring one should look at the following points:

  • Thoroughly evaluate the space before selecting a specific size.
  • Floor preparation such as leveling is vital.
  • Check for moisture in the subfloor and make sure the expansion gap is correct to allow for expansion all around the walls and door frames.
  • The sub-floor must be level to within a 3 mm tolerance over a 2-meter span.
  • Luxury vinyl plank flooring and LVT are usually installed as a floating floor, being either loose-laid or glued down but the flooring can be installed with rubber underlay for both transition sound and walking sound.
