I want to do vinyl laminate flooring in my bedroom myself

Customer Question

I want to do vinyl laminate flooring in my bedroom myself instead of paying a professional again. It's basically rubbery strips that use some special adhesive to stick. What would this adhesive be?

I will have your abswer in a momebt

There are several different glues available
at the big home stores.
Before choosing a brand or type of glue you need to
select your flooring and use the glue recommended
by its manufacturer.
There also flooring products that do not need to be glued.
They are easier to work with and usually reasonably
priced.
I will post a link to some vinyl glue.
I will be glad to answer any questions you
may have.

This vinyl adhesive is compatible with most vinyl products.
Check your vinyls manufacturers recommendations just to be sure.

I reMember them using a trowel to apply from at least a 5 gallon bucket. Any ideas on what this adhesive might be? It was thicker than glue with a yellow-brown color.

It has the look of hardwood, but is more pet-friendly.

Some brands llock together that used to be glued.
They come in planks and no lobger put down with adhesive.
The product you are describing was used when laminate flooring
first came out .
All of the newer versions lock together
and need no adhesives.
There are a few brands that are very thin
and use vinyl adhesive
Ill post a link
