Frequently Asked Questions
How come Fit Floors prices are so affordable compared to other stores?
This is one of many benefits of holding our stock in a warehouse, we get better prices from the supplier. Not only that, we also have no extra shipping and freight charges other companies add to the price of the product, which ranges between $.10-$.50 a sq ft.
How do I know how many boxes to order?
If you want floor for two rooms, for example, and one room is 12' by 15' you multiply those together, which equals 180 and that is your square footage. You will do the same with the next room and add it together. The next room is, say, 10' by 20'. This room equals 200 square feet, plus the other room of 180, for a grand total of 380 sq ft. To answer the question, now that you have your square footage. Each product description says how many sq ft are in a box. If you choose the 5mm click, there is 23.8 sq ft in a box. 380 divided by 23.8 equals 15.9 boxes. Because there are always off cuts during installation it would be a good idea in this scenario to order 17 boxes and the total will be calculated for you at checkout.

Can I install vinyl overtop of radiant or electric heated floors?
Yes, vinyl is incredibly versatile and makes for a perfect fit in basements or heated floors in bathrooms, for example, as long as the heat source is embedded in the subfloor. It's best to speak with an installer for best approaches for your scenario. We are happy to help.
Should I nail or screw my subfloor?
Although nails have great shear strength, screws will prevent squeaking and will not pop up if they missed the joist. This is especially true in high traffic areas where nails will have a great probability of moving and therefore squeaking.
