Consequently, how much does a box of vinyl plank flooring weight?
30 to 35 pounds
Likewise, can you put heavy furniture on vinyl plank flooring? You can! For furniture, we recommend that you use felt furniture pads under legs to prevent scratching the flooring surface. Never use rubber, as rubber can stain vinyl flooring. For heavy furniture and appliances, use a non-staining large surface floor protector.
Likewise, how much does a box of flooring weigh?
All manufacturers are different. A good ballpark number to work with would be approximately 1.5 pounds per square foot for engineered hardwoods. Solid domestic(oak, maple, walnut etc) 3/4" hardwoods weigh in at 2.8 pounds, while exotic hardwoods weigh 3.8 pounds per square foot.
Do vinyl planks expand?
Vinyl flooring naturally expands and contracts in the heat and cold. Stop the floor between a quarter inch and a half inch shy of the wall to allow for this natural expansion. If the floor is installed flush with the wall there is no room for growth in the hot months and the loose-lay floor can easily buckle.
