INSTALL VINYL FLOOR
Vinyl Plank : Size 152,4 x 914,4 mm (6″x36″)
Vinyl Tile : Size 457,2 x 457,2 (18″x18″)
- Snap a chalk line between the center points of each opposite wall to divide the room into four equal quadrants.
- Layout a row of loose vinyl in all directions at the center inter section point. Evaluate the fit. If there are small cuts (leens than 1/2″) along walls, move the starting point down by 1/2 a vinyl width and re-snap your chalk lines. If desired, snap chalks lines to divide the larger quadrants into smaller (approx 2′ x 3′) sections.
- Begin securing vinyl floor at the center intersection point in one quadrant and work your way towards the walls.
- Sweep and vacum the floor so it is completely clean.
- Beginning at the center point, install the first vinyl floor so it aligns with the two main chalk lines in the center of the room. Apply the adhesive to the subfloor as directed by the manufacturer.
- Place another vinyl floor next to the first one in one direction of the room then along the other direction. Vinyl floor should be snug but not overlapping.
- When you reach a wall, scribe fit the vinyl floor. Place a full vinyl floor directly on top of the one you just installed near the wall. Place a second vinyl floor on top of the other two butted up against the wall (Leave expansion spacing, if needed). Use a pencil to mark the inner edge of the top vinyl floor one the middle one. Remove the middle one and cut along the line. The cut vinyl floor should now be the exact width you need for your installation area.
- Continue installing vinyl floor in each section and quadrant until the floor is completed.
- Roll the newly installed vinyl floor with a roller.
- Let the newly installed vinyl floor cure between 24-72 hours. During this time, do not move anything back into the room and keep traffic to a minimum.
