Thank you for your question. This flooring has a 200 pound per square inch weight limit. Since your pool table will have 4 legs supporting the weight, divide the weight of the pool table by 4 to obtain the weight needed for support. If that number is less than or equal to 200 pounds per square inch, you should be okay. Be sure to install proper floor protectors (nylon or felt) on all furniture legs used on the resilient flooring.

Installation of flooring?

Asked by

January 22, 2016
Our club is strongly wanting to put this flooring on the enclosed porches of the clubhouse. We have a few questions. The floor it will go on is concrete.
Will it need to acclimate to the surroundings? If son, how long?
Will we need to adjust for freezing and heat during installation to prevent buckling?
Will we need a vapor barrier?
What if someone leaves a window open and there is excess water? Should we add a step during installation? If so, what?
Will we need a vapor barrier or any other surface protector or insulator?
Thanks for the help/

i am getting ready to build a garage apt in back yard of a rental house I have in South Austin. It will not be low end. Even so I don't think I want to spring for hard woods although that would be nice. They are just too high maintenance. Someone suggested Allure vinyl plank flooring.. Now I see there are 3 different kinds. Which would be better for my situation: plus or ultra? Don't really see what the difference is. I want to put it bathroom too. From what I read it can withstand water..Thanks ahead for any suggestions!

We installed the flooring in our bathroom, like it very well. Now I would like to take out the flooring in our motor home and use the same thing. The temperature during the winter time inside the motor home will get below freezing. Can the flooring be used for this application? Or what do I need to do at installation. Ed

We are installing this in a guest house, and wondered if we heat the house for several days before installation, will the adhesive stick well enough, or do we need to wait until spring? Also, do we need an underlayment for installing directly on concrete?
