We recently started laying some adhesive vinyl planks in our house. I'd done the research and we settled on Gerflor Senso Natural Lord planks.
We also did the floor preparation to ensure the adhesive planks stuck on well.
There was a fair bit of planning to do (self driven) to ensure everything looked just right and extra care to execute but the results are worthwhile.
We started with the dining room and the kids' area – a good, large space to get used to the process – and then continued to the kitchen area.
That much took us two nights after work – and some sore knees and backs.
Then came the entry and main hallway.
Cleaning and priming the surface, ensuring your tiles are in good condition and level and applying good pressure to ensure the adhesive is activated is absolutely key for anyone thinking of installing these.
I did not remove the skirting but I did leave a couple of millimetres against the skirting for expansion as per instructions.
It was a tricky to decide whether to rip up the tiles. But with a bit of research before we are happy we didn't rip it all up or self-level.
I can't speak much on durability but so far they have been great with water spills, food spills (we have a toddler) and durability. We had trades walk over them for a few days and they are perfectly fine.
