Vinyl plank flooring

Here’s a question from our 08/17/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Janice in Florida says, “We installed vinyl plank flooring and after a year it is now not adhering and seems to have shrunk in many areas.

The product isn’t on the market anymore. We don’t know how to fix this without taking it out and replacing it with a better product. This is in about 1,100 square feet of our home.”

We tell Janice it’s common practice to leave flooring in a room where it will be installed for up to a week to acclimate. Since some of her boards went directly in, they shifted in size. The bad news here is she’ll likely need to go ahead and replace the uneven section of her floor.
