Flexitec Flooring need advice
 
Need advice and opinions on Flexitec flooring. Considering installing this in my kitchen, laundry, den and living areas. Structure is a very large modular/mobile home. Understand that tile is really not a good option, do not like regular vinyl (have that in some rooms now), and carpet in living and den just is not holding up well with two dogs. Anyone have the flexitec down for a while?

Thanks for any input!

The only time I've ever seen issues with it is in modular/mobile homes. I've run into issues with it buckling several times in these types of homes. I can only assume that it due to a greater amount of movement in the structure. Every time we've full spread the adhesive in these cases it occurs. Loose lays in such a structure do not seem to have the same problems.

With the adhesive it needs to be pressure sensitive. The recommend using a certain kind. From there video it looks like when it drys it is sticky but doesn't transfer it more of sticking with pressure. www.flexitecvinyl.com has a video section that has all the videos in 720x576 resolution. But it looks like its in development I been doing research for a while now. Hopefully i will figure out which pattern to get.
