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 100m2 house (completely empty, purchasing in January) and can purchase vinyl laminate tiles myself from Bunnings, but need the floor panels installed. The installation will be over existing tiles (kitchen area), concrete slab, and existing pine floors (whole house excluding bathroom). I need someone who has experience cutting, laying and securing this product efficiently and neatly and can supply their own tools for the job. Prefer a team of 2. The job will be in second half January (NOT the 7th as it is making me select). Looking forward to quotes. Cheers.

We have a tiny tear in our vinyl flooring which the realestate have asked us to replace. We have the vinyl to replace it just don’t know how to do it or have the tools / glue to. It is a very small job and the area that needs laying down it literally 0.5m by 1 meter. The area circled in the photo is what needs to be ripped up and replaced
