Loose lay vinyl flooring is one of the simplest floors to install. As shown in the video, Loose lay vinyl tile literally just lays on the floor with no nails, staples, or glue. Loose Lay Vinyl installs flush to the walls, right up against them. No expansion gap is needed, because these don’t expand or contract. Each plank also installs flush with the surrounding planks, so that once you’ve got your floor in place, it has nowhere to go. The bottom surface creates a good amount of friction, almost gripping the subfloor underneath it.
