Luxury vinyl flooring and concrete slab subfloor: Does it work?

Concrete slab subfloors are standard in California. You love the value and style luxury vinyl flooring provides but wonder if it can be installed over concrete.

Yes, it can! All it takes is a tiny bit of extra attention.

The key to installing over concrete


Luxury vinyl flooring
is typically installed via glue-down or floating floor techniques. All required is for the floor to be dry, debris-free, and level.

If needed, the installer will sand and patch up any holes. You might not need an underlayment, but you may want one anyway.?

Underlayments reduce noise, block drafts, and can act as a moisture barrier. In addition, it makes standing and walking on your vinyl plank flooring or luxury vinyl tile more comfortable.?

About the floating floor
