Why choose us for your vinyl flooring installation

The installation is as important as the flooring product itself. Even an uncomplicated one like vinyl flooring requires a pro’s touch. Read on, and we’ll tell you why.

At Galaxie Floor Stores, we know that every product is different, even when it all falls under an umbrella term like vinyl. Every company might have a different manufacturing process and even the slightest variation can affect the outcome. Flooring is a big investment. We call vinyl “stylish savings,” so you want it to look great for a long time.

We know what makes a floating floor great

This is one of the easiest and fastest installation techniques. It is often used for vinyl plank or LVT flooring. The pieces click together like a puzzle, forming a mat that then goes over most existing subfloors without any nailing, stapling, or adhesives. Vinyl sheets can also become a floating floor but there's no click-and-lock included.

We make sure the measurements are accurate, the seams are aligned properly and that there are no bubbles, rolls, or squeaks. Get a high-quality product. The appearance of your floating floor depends on that. The very inexpensive bargain-basement floors aren't meant to last long; in fact, the product can be from different batches, so you might have color variations, different widths, etc.

We know subfloors

Just because vinyl goes over most existing subfloors doesn’t mean there’s no care involved. For example, we know the difference between a concrete subfloor and a concrete slab, and how the installations can differ. Circling back to quality, if the product is too thin, subfloor imperfections will telegraph through.

What is luxury vinyl flooring?

It is an affordable, durable, waterproof, and amazingly realistic mimic of wood, tile, or stone. It comes in a wide array of colors, patterns, and designs. Embossing features give the floor added depth and dimension, and it is available in matte, gloss, or high gloss finishes.

Destructive bacteria can develop in low quality flooring. This type of floor alleviates this issue by not permitting spills to infiltrate the surface.

Installation is easy and can be finished in under a day for most ordinary sized rooms. Our installation team can finish the job in only a couple of hour.
