I looked at sheet vinyl flooring at Home Depot that is installed without adhesive. The brochure and instructions that go with it say you just cut and lay it out and use some tape in a few places and it stays in place. Has anyone used this? I like the idea of glueless. Does it work as they claim?

You are talking about a perimeter tape vinyl. The idea is that you cut it to size and perimeter tape the edges much like tack strip for carpet. The vinyl then shrinks after installation to fit tight much like a drum head. That's the theory anyways. I haven't had any personal experience with it but if it's installed by Home Depot installers it comes with a pretty good warranty.

I recently had a "Glueless Floor" installed on my first floor. The contractor insisted that no glue was needed except where there would be seams. Six months later I have bubbles in the first floor foyer. I checked Armstrongs web site and read the instruction guide and learned that in narrow and small areas such as bathrooms, closets, pantry's, etc. full adhesive is to be used. In wide areas like the kitchen a 10 to 12 inch wide adhesive strip should be spread around the perimeter of the room and around openings, i.e., air condition vents. Now I have to spread the adhesive myself because the contractor is refusing to return my calls. The floor looks great but do your home work first so as not to be taken advantage by a half-ass contractor.

The problem is the ''glueless'' vinyl like at HDepot and other stores does usually state NOT to glue the material.It is a copycat of the old ''interflex' goods wich only required 4 to 6inch perimeter spread with Their 2 part epoxy,the goods was laid in and would eventually shrink taught.The material was fantastic to install and could be folded,very forgiving stuff.Now the ''copy cat'' vinyl is different,with dif. requiremnets and not even close to the same quality as ''interflex.Im just saying the stuff they are selling at Building suppy stores that is glueless is Not the same ,just like comparing peel -n-stick to commercial tile,or apples to oranges.You get what you pay for.
