If tile isn’t properly installed, these are some problems you might see:
- Loose Tile - Like loose floorboards, they are also not adhered to the floor.
- Uneven tiles - This can be caused by not properly leveling the subfloor. It can also be a result of using wrong amounts of mortar.

If you prefer to do your home remodeling projects yourself, you may want to think about the expense if you get it wrong. There are two different forms of vinyl floors to choose from; tiles or sheets. The tiles are usually the easiest to install and using tiles allows you to be creative and make a checkerboard design of your own. Vinyl floor tiles are typically made with a peel and stick back, which means you simply peel away the protective covering and place the tile where you want it. So, this may be a good choice if you are considering installing vinyl tile yourself. Vinyl sheets are installed with an adhesive. The adhesive is applied to the subflooring and the sheets of tile are rolled out over the adhesive.
The most important part of installing vinyl flooring is to make sure the surface where it will be installed is clean, smooth and hard. If you are concerned about the tiles sticking, there are special primers available at Carpet Depot in Atlanta that will provide a good foundation for the sticky backing of the tiles. If there are any holes in the floor, they should be filled with a wood putty or caulking to prevent the tiles from sinking into the holes. The professional installers at Carpet Depot know how to properly measure and place the vinyl floor. The last thing you want is to place your vinyl floors and then find that you need to have a professional come in and start the job over from scratch, which could be expensive.
