Update to my Press Fit vinyl flooring install.

Here is final result of the Press Fit vinyl plank flooring I installed on our 1975 Safari remodel. It is a 3mm vinyl top layer on 7mm of ABS plastic honeycomb-like base layer. It is completely waterproof and has minimal expanding and contracting characteristics! It comes in many colours and wood grain patterns. It was easy to install as the joint just drops straight diwn and is hammered in place with a rubber mallet.

Thank you for the compliments! I will definitely report back on the condition of the floor after it's first winter. The product is called Press Lock self-locking vinyl fooring by Richmond Reflections.

I assume you removed the old flooring first? Did you take any pictures of the install? Thanks.

No I did not take any installation shots. I did remove the old flooring which was laid by the previous owner. I sanded the plywood floor and primed it with a shellac based primer. The Press Lock system goes down in a similar way to laminent but because the joint is a friction fit J-mould channel, each plank is placed straight down and hammered tight with a rubber mallet as opposed to placing in at an angle to line up the joints and clicking in place as with most laminent flooring. Cutting was easy, I used a table saw and sliding mitre saw for all my cuts. You need to wear long sleeves and good safty goggles though as your saw will throw sharp little plastic shards at you while cutting.
