The way this should be done is, the carpet needs to be pulled back in the area to be done, pulled back far enough to give working space. Pull back the padding, being careful enough not to rip the padding.
1) remove any staples left from the padding.
2) remove any tackstrip ( wooden strip with nails in it ).
3) sweep the area well.
4) put down 1/4 inch luan subfloor
5) prepare subfloor for vinyl flooring
6) lay vinyl floor on subfloor
7) rough cut vinyl flooring to be about 1 inch over sized
8) glue half of the floor using proper adhesive then fold floor into the wet adhesive
9) roll that half of the floor with a 75 lbs roller
10) repeat # 8 and 9 on the other half
11) put down tackstrips around vinyl area or metal trims with pins around vinyl area
12) pull the carpet back over
13) cut the carpet over sized by about 1 inch being carefull not to cut the vinyl
14) streatch carpet upto vinyl or metal trim
15) pick up mess

Tools needed are utility knife, hammer, subfloor stapler or subfloor nails, puddy knife, carpenters square, tin snips, 75 pound roller, carpet kicker, wonder bar, and trowel.

Supplies needed are vinyl, luan, adhesive, floor patch, tack strip, matal trim.
