More Info on Vinyl Flooring Accessories
Underlayment of one type or another is used with virtually all types of flooring, and you’ll want to ensure you use vinyl underlay specifically. Some people use plywood to create a new surface to work with before installing the underlay for vinyl tiles.
Fillers, Mastics and Joint Sealers
When you’re installing vinyl flooring, it’s essential that you work with a clean, smooth surface. If you don’t wish to use plywood, you will need fillers and joint sealers to fill in any imperfections in the sub-floor. This will give you a clean base to work with before you proceed.

You will most likely need a flooring trowel to spread filers and joint sealers, as well as vinyl adhesive. You will also need a utility knife as well to trim the vinyl in order work around fixtures such as toilets, sinks, bathtubs and other obstacles. You will also need adhesive glue to secure the vinyl tiles, nails for securing the underlay and various other tools.
