Ken's Quick Answer:

Want to avoid carpet in the bathroom? If you have an uneven subfloor, sheet vinyl may be your only hope! Unless you’re going to pay for expensive self leveler, consider little orphan sheet vinyl as a go-to option.

Ken's In-Depth Answer:

I want to talk to you about the orphan of the floor covering business. Poor, old sheet vinyl. Since the advent of luxury vinyl plank, many people aren't interested in sheet vinyl anymore.

But we here in Newport know better because some of the houses are really old and historic. In many cases, those kitchen floors and bathroom floors are not flat. We've discussed in a previous video, how you need a firm and flat floor to install many types of flooring.

Unless you're going to level your floor with a lot of expensive self leveler, uneven floors will require either carpet or sheet vinyl. And we know you're not going to choose carpet in the bathroom!

So if you have uneven floors and you can't put a vinyl plank floor down, think about poor, old sheet vinyl. It still has a place in this world and gets the job done nicely!
