OK for new vinyl flooring to tuck under toilet riser flange?

I'm doing a total R&R of the bath, about to install new vinyl flooring in over new ply subfloor and will later install the riser and flange for the toilet. Is it a good idea to run the flooring under the flange or hold it just short of the flange? Seems like it would help protect the plywood subfloor if it extended under the flange.

Cool

The toilet flange should sit flush on top of the new finished fooring (in this case the vinyl), with only the thickness of the flange above the finished floor level.
The flange should be bolted to the floor, and the toilet leveled and bolted to the flange.


Good Luck!
Mike
