How To Cut Vinyl Plank Flooring

Vinyl Flooring Installation

Cutting vinyl plank flooring can be done in a few ways, including using a utility knife, a jigsaw, or a circular saw. Here’s a step-by-step guide for each method:

  1. Using a Utility Knife:
  • Measure and mark the cut line on the vinyl plank.
  • Place the plank on a flat surface, such as a cutting mat or a piece of scrap wood.
  • Hold the utility knife at a 45-degree angle and make a shallow score along the cut line.
  • Repeat the scoring process until the cut line is deep enough to snap the plank.
  • Snap the plank along the scored line.
  1. Using a Jigsaw:
  • Measure and mark the cut line on the vinyl plank.
  • Clamp the plank to a work surface to prevent movement.
  • Use a fine-toothed blade specifically designed for cutting vinyl flooring.
  • Start the jigsaw and carefully follow the cut line, keeping the blade perpendicular to the plank.
  1. Using a Circular Saw:
  • Measure and mark the cut line on the vinyl plank.
  • Clamp the plank to a work surface to prevent movement.
  • Use a fine-toothed blade specifically designed for cutting vinyl flooring.
  • Adjust the depth of the blade to match the thickness of the plank.
  • Start the circular saw and carefully follow the cut line, keeping the saw perpendicular to the plank.

Regardless of the method used, it’s important to take your time and make precise cuts to ensure a professional-looking finished product.
