Linoleum Flooring Professional or DIY? How to Choose.

Pro or DIY?

Many factors can influence the success of a flooring project, and selecting the right flooring installer for the job is one of them. Are you planning to hire a professional flooring installer or do you want to install your own floor? The type of linoleum flooring you choose will affect your decision.

You've decided to hire a professional to install your new linoleum flooring, and you're in luck! Our Find It Locally search directory, located at the top of every page of our website, will help you locate licensed flooring professionals in your area. It's as easy as entering your zip code.

There are three types of linoleum flooring: sheet, tile and floating. Sheet linoleum comes in heavy 6'6" rolls and is the most popular type of linoleum floor. One sheet may be all that's needed to finish an entire project with a minimal amount of seams, making sheet linoleum ideal for rooms where moisture may be present. Professional installation is recommended, as large sheets of linoleum can prove difficult for a DIY installer to handle. Use our Find It Locally search directory to find qualified flooring professionals near you.

Do–it–Yourself types tend to have better success with linoleum plank or linoleum tile flooring. Both are smaller in size and easier to install than linoleum sheets. Linoleum planks are considered the simplest option of the two for a DIY project. The planks feature click and lock edges that can be connected without adhesive, while linoleum tiles require adhesive for installation. Keep in mind installing linoleum planks and tiles will yield more seams in your floor than sheet linoleum; follow the manufacturer's instructions precisely to ensure the best results.

Regardless of the linoleum flooring and flooring installer you choose, will guide you through all aspects of your flooring project.
