  • Can I install this over my existing flooring?

    For best results with our DuraDecor Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks, we do recommend that the surface you install on must be moisture free, clean smooth, structurally sound, tightly secured, and flat and level. Existing floor coverings must be tightly secured and bonded. Remove any contaminants, waxes, sealers from the surface and cover with a suitable cementitious embossing leveler.

  • Is this product waterproof and do I need to seal it?

    Our DuraDecor Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks are inherently water resistant = water/moisture will not affect the surface, but if submerged, the adhesive on the backing could be affected. In order to “seal or polish”, you would have to sand the surface of our planks and then apply the secondary coating. We do not recommend this because it’s not only difficult to do, but costly and will void the product warranty completely. We suggest contacting the customer support line at www.1877floorguy.com and talk to them about finishes safe for luxury vinyl flooring. They are good at it and very knowledgeable. One thing to keep in mind is that once you put a finish on a floor it becomes part of the maintenance routine. Additional coats will be necessary to keep the shine and stripping of the floor with a cleaning and reapplication of the finish will be required periodically.

  • Can I install over my existing vinyl?

    For best results with our DuraDecor Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks, we do recommend that the surface you install on must be moisture free, clean smooth, structurally sound, tightly secured, and flat and level. Existing floor coverings must be tightly secured and bonded. Do not cover loose-lay, floating flooring or cushion backed vinyl with DIY Self-stick flooring. Remove any contaminants, waxes, sealers from the surface and cover with a suitable cementitious embossing leveler.

  • Can I put this over my old hardwood?

    For our DuraDecor Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks, we approve installing over existing hardwood flooring, but it must be covered with a suitable underlayment grade plywood panel as specified in the full installation guide; do not install self-stick products over finished (varnished or polyurethane coated) hardwood flooring.

  • Will this scratch easily?

    In our Full Installation and Care Guide (found on this products’ information page on HomeDepot.com), we list that use of nylon or felt-type furniture guides is required under all furniture. All types of furniture glides/protectors should be changed regularly to prevent scratching from embedded debris in the glide. Regular sweeping or vacuuming with a brushless vacuum will keep dirt and debris off the vinyl floor. Ensure all furniture and fixtures have the appropriate floor protectors installed and are changed regularly. Damp mop the floor weekly to remove dirt; a small amount of a neutral pH cleaner can be used to help remove dirt and buildups. A white scrub pad can be used on heavy deposits. Do not use multi-surface or ammoniated cleaners.

  • How many cases will I need for a 12×15 room?

  • Do I need any extra glue to keep this down?

    We do not recommend any additional adhesives with our DuraDecor Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks. We do recommend making sure you remove all sealers, wax, grease, oil, adhesive residue, dirt, paint, or other foreign material on your substrate to ensure a clean bond. And roll the complete floor or wall in length and width with the recommended roller. The specially formulated enhanced adhesive on the planks is a pressure-sensitive adhesive and this step ensures a complete bond to the substrate. Failure to roll the floor or wall may result in loose or curled pieces.
