Armstrong vinyl plank flooring specifications
Vinyl plank flooring looks like real wood but is much easier to install and maintain. (texture of wooden floor - can be used as background image by Elnur from Fotolia.com)

Armstrong Vinyl Plank Flooring is one of the easiest DIY projects for a homeowner to attempt. This flooring comes in several widths, mimics actual wood and features bevelled edges and ends. The planks are bonded together with an overlapping edge of adhesive and not affixed directly to the floor. A 1/8-inch expansion gap at the edges of the walls is covered over with moulding nailed to the wall. It is water-resistant and easy to maintain once installed, making it a logical choice for any room in the home.

Types

Vinyl plank flooring comes in a variety of types that look like real wood. You can choose from a finish in birch, fruitwood, maple, pine, oak, walnut, hickory or bamboo.

Gloss

Low gloss is the most popular, but there are several varieties that offer a high-gloss finish.

Dimensions

All varieties of Armstrong plank flooring are 48 inches in length. The width varies depending on the type of wood pattern chosen. Widths range from 3 inches up to 6 inches.

Installation

Dry-fit the area first. Lay the planks parallel to the longest wall in the room, and work in a left-to-right fashion. The planks are bonded together by an adhesive strip that overlaps the plank beside it. It is a "floating" floor, meaning it is not bonded to the subfloor below it. Rows should be staggered.
