How can you prevent sheet vinyl flooring from spliting?
William on Jun 02, 2017Vinyl floors can crack if the material is not installed properly. The subfloor or underlayment is usually the cause of cracks in a vinyl floor. For severe cracking of the vinyl, the floor will need replacement, and you must repair the underlayment or subfloor to prevent future problems with a new floor. Extreme temperature changes can affect the flexibility of the vinyl. The grout lines are thinner and that is where cracks occur.Helpful Reply
