At Home Painters Toronto, we understand you may have questions about our vinyl floor installation and repair services. To help you make an informed decision, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and their answers.

Vinyl flooring is manufactured from a special type of plastic known as polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It’s a synthetic cousin of linoleum and is famous for its waterproofing and durability attributes. Hence, vinyl flooring is popular in bathrooms, kitchens, and high-traffic areas.

Vinyl has the power to imitate the look and feel of different house flooring types, from the ruggedness of stone to the warmth of wood, without the associated cost and maintenance. Unsurprisingly, this chameleon of flooring options is popular in multiple settings, including homes, offices, and commercial spaces.

Vinyl flooring, known for its resilience, can withstand everyday wear and tear. However, it isn’t invincible. It can still succumb to the stresses and strains of heavy impact, sharp objects, or harsh chemicals. Over time, scuffs, tears, and seam separations can occur, necessitating repair. For more noticeable or extensive damages, full replacement becomes inevitable.

And that’s where we come in! Home Painters Toronto offers various vinyl floor installation and repair services. We’ve provided homeowners in Toronto and the GTA with quality repairs since 1991.
With over 35 years of experience under our belts, we know precisely what it takes to make your interior vinyl floors look beautiful again. Whether you need installation or some minor scratched floor repair, we’ve got you covered!

Installing Vinyl Flooring

Installing vinyl flooring can be a very doable DIY project, requiring a handful of tools and materials.


Tools and Material

  • Vinyl flooring
  • Tape Measure
  • Leveller tool
  • Adhesive (as required)
  • Trowel
  • Roller

Vinyl Floor Installation: Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Quick Preparation: To start the installation, first, even out your subfloor. Use the leveller tool to identify any dips or rises. Fill in the dips and sand down the rises.
  2. Measure: Next, accurately measure the room’s dimensions you’d like to lay the vinyl flooring, keeping some extras for adjustment.
  3. Cut and Adjust: Based on your measurements, cut the required amount of vinyl. Usually, it’s best to let the vinyl sit in the room for 24 hours before installing it to get acclimatized to the room’s temperature and humidity.
  4. Apply Adhesive: Following the manufacturer’s instructions, ideally, using a trowel, you would spread the vinyl floor adhesive evenly over the floor. Some vinyl flooring might be peel-and-stick floor tiles, which simplifies this step.
  5. Lay the Vinyl: Now you are ready to lay down the vinyl floor. Begin from an edge and cautiously lay the vinyl onto the adhesive (or just peel and stick). Make sure it lies flat, and there are no lumps or wrinkles.
  6. Seal It: Finally, apply pressure with a roller for a firmly fixed floor.

Vinyl Floor Repairs

If your vinyl floor tiles are damaged, there are a few things you can do to fix them. In some cases, a handy homeowner can undertake cosmetic patching of vinyl flooring or minor repairs without the help of a professional. But there are instances when the damaged area is too extensive or when addressing an underlying problem becomes necessary. In either case, it’s important to follow proper procedures. Here’s a simple guideline for common repairs:

Small Cuts or Dents

How to repair a crack in vinyl flooring? For minor cuts, use a seam sealer to bond the edges together and prevent them from spreading. Apply a liquid seam filler to smooth out noticeable scratches on the vinyl floor.

Bigger Damages

You’ll need to replace the chipped or damaged piece for larger damages that are impossible to ignore. Remove the damaged area using a vinyl floor cutter. Ensure to cut it evenly, making a template to cut the precise shape from a spare piece of vinyl. Apply adhesive, then fix the new piece, firmly applying pressure with a roller.

1. Why It’s Important to Properly Install or Repair Your Damaged Interior Vinyl Floor?

Vinyl flooring is an excellent solution for those who crave durability and aesthetic appeal without a hefty price tag. But the key to a long-lasting, beautiful floor lies in how well it’s installed and subsequently maintained.

Let’s understand why proper installation and repair of your interior vinyl floor is fundamental:

A. Enhances Lifespan

Firstly, vinyl flooring can last up to 20 years when installed professionally and precisely. Sometimes even more, depending on the quality of the product and maintenance. Obviously, flawed installation or hasty repairs can significantly decrease this lifespan, making replacements more frequent and costly.

B. Preserves Aesthetics

A poorly installed vinyl floor can result in visible seams, bumps, and uneven surfaces, negating its visual appeal. Similarly, incorrect repairs can leave obvious patches or mismatched areas. Proper installation and repair keep the floor looking seamless and attractive.

C. Ensures Safety

Improper vinyl floor installation or ill-done repairs may lead to loose edges, bulging sections, or gaps, which pose tripping hazards. Securely fixing and levelling all pieces with professional installation and repair services can help mitigate these risks.

D. Prevents Further Damage

Neglecting a small cut, rip, or dent on your vinyl floor could lead to more extensive damage, compounding the problem and cost. Timely repair avoids this downward spiral, safeguarding your vinyl floor’s integrity.

E. Maintains Warranty

Remember, poor installation or unauthorized repairs may void your product warranty. Most manufacturers insist on professional services to set up or salvage their products to maintain their cover.

2. How Much Does Vinyl Floor Installation and Repair Cost?

Vinyl floor installation and repair costs vary based on their size, the kind of vinyl used, and the extent of the damage.

But if you’re curious about what interior carpentry in Toronto might cost, here are some ballpark figures:

• Small handyman project: $1,500 to $3,000 + HST

• Medium handyman project: $3,000 to $5,000 + HST

• Large handyman project: $5,000 to $10,000 + HST

• XL handyman project: $10,000 to $20,000 + HST
