He helped us make a start laying our vinyl planks, including around some tricky edges and doorways, and also gave us a bunch of useful tips and advice (both re laying and the tools required) to help us on our way. He’s exceptionally friendly and generous with his time, even leaving us with some of his tools and offering to come back later in the week to help with any areas we might have trouble with. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Big thanks from us! "

Choose the right person for your task and get it done.
When you book a vinyl flooring fitting service on Airtasker, you get a Tasker who’ll come over with the complete set of tools for the job. You can have them shop for your desired vinyl planks or sheets, or you can opt to do this yourself.
In general, here’s what you can expect when you request a vinyl flooring service through Airtasker:
Your tradesperson arrives at your location with all the necessary tools. These may include patching compound, pliers, a utility knife, hammer, nail set, carpenter’s square, putty knife, straightedge, drawbar tool, fine-tooth saw, 1/4 inch spacers, and a tape measure. If you haven’t purchased your vinyl planks or sheets yet, they can do this on your behalf as well.
Just make sure to specify what you want (or don’t want) in your task post, like “luxury vinyl flooring only” or “white or yellow vinyl flooring”. Expect your Tasker to coordinate with you during the buying process to avoid any miscommunication or wrong purchases.
Once all the materials and tools are ready, your tradesperson starts fitting the vinyl flooring. First, they’ll plan the layout based on the most visible wall and going out towards the entryway. They’ll take some measurements and remove any trim or skirting boards.
Next, they’ll check the subfloor. Your vinyl fitter fills any holes or low-lying areas with patching compound and sands down any high points. Once the floor is ready, your tradesperson lays out the first row of planks and cuts off any excess. These smaller pieces can be used for vinyl flooring in your bathroom, wetroom, or a closet.
Finally, your tradesperson connects the planks and attaches them to the subfloor using an adhesive material. Then, you’re free to inspect the work. Once you’re happy with your new vinyl floors, your tradesperson reattaches any skirting or moulding. After this, you can clean up the room and move back your furniture. Or, you can get a Tasker to help you clean up the post-fitting debris and dust.
Vinyl flooring typically has a lifespan of around 20 years. Since they can’t be refinished, you’ll need to tear up the planks or sheets and have someone redo the floors. Should you choose to work with vinyl again, you can easily hire a tradesperson who’ll remove the old vinyl, refinish the subfloor, and fit the new flooring.

I have a small concreted basement area approx 20 metres squared in which I would like to install some low-cost flooring. Prefer vinyl with dark wood look. Open to recommendations. Flooring hasn’t been purchased yet so costing required for labour only. Sooner the better. Happy to negotiate. Images of the room in question are attached.

We’re installing luxury vinyl planks in our apartment and were hoping to find someone with experience laying the product to help us out - mainly with edges and doorways etc. We have a few of the necessary tools (circular and straight saws) but any extras would be welcomed. Ideally free for a couple of days early next week. Photos of previous work would be helpful.

I have 50sqm of luxury vinyl flooring I wanted to lay myself but have found the task too hard and would like to now outsource it. The vinyl planks are 5mm thick and can be cut with a Stanley knife but would be easier with a jigsaw with cutting blade for plastic. Previous vinyl floor laying experience desired.
