Because it’s soft, Amtico flooring needs to be laid on a perfectly flat and smooth surface. If your floor isn’t already level, then you’ll need to factor this into the cost for your new vinyl flooring.
Not only that, but if you want to install your Amtico flooring on top of concrete, you’ll need to get a damp-proof membrane applied first.
Other factors that will influence the price of your Amtico flooring include the design you choose and the intricacy of the pattern you want laying.
Amtico flooring price per square metre
The cost of Amtico flooring varies depending on the style you prefer. As an example, white ash Amtico flooring costs on average £30 per square metre, with dozens more colours to choose from.
Because Amtico flooring is a high-end vinyl, it’s a little pricier than your average vinyl flooring, which can start at as low as £6 - £7 per square metre. But at the same time, it’s going to come in vastly cheaper than those natural materials like stone or wood.
Amtico flooring installation cost
When it comes to installing your Amtico flooring, you’ll want to budget around £20 per square metre, as well as £7 per square metre for preparation.
The total cost of Amtico flooring
In total, you can expect Amtico flooring costs to start at around £57 per square metre. This includes the average Amtico flooring cost per square metre as well as the average costs of installation and preparation.
How long does it take to lay Amtico flooring?
It can be slow to install Amtico flooring because these tiles need to be glued down with a special adhesive.
The adhesive takes around ten minutes to go tacky before the tiles can be stuck to the floor, meaning the room has to be done bit by bit.
Can you lay Amtico flooring yourself?
You can lay Amtico flooring yourself, but be careful – if the tiles aren’t installed inline with the manufacturer’s guidelines, you’ll void any warranty that comes with them. Plus, because the flooring needs to be stuck down, it’s tricky to rectify any mistakes!
