What to expect during Vinyl installation

It’s luxury vinyl installation day! Make plans to be home this day to answer any questions or help solve issues that arise for your installers. In addition to keeping kids and pets away from the installation area, you will need to designate an area for your luxury vinyl installers to keep tools and cut pieces as needed. Most of today's luxury vinyl floors click together with locking systems and can often be installed over existing flooring, which saves valuable time in an active home. Your luxury vinyl installation will be quicker than installing the hardwood or stone that it replicates!

Before Installation

In the rooms that are receiving new luxury vinyl, you will first need to remove all furnishings from the room, closets, and walls. Most luxury vinyl options offer a floating installation method, so you may not need to pull up and dispose of the existing flooring! Also, the attached padding can fix most subfloor imperfections. Your new flooring height will be raised so you will need to shave down doors in order to have full range of motion after installation is complete. New luxury vinyl should acclimate in your rooms for at least 48 hours before installation.

After Installation

Once your luxury vinyl installation is complete, now is the time to walk through with your installers and ask any questions that you may have. If your new luxury vinyl floor is installed as a floating floor, it can receive light foot traffic immediately. For luxury vinyl floors that are glued down, we recommend waiting at least 24 to 48 hours before walking on it. When carefully bringing furniture back into the rooms, use protectors on the feet of chairs, tables, and heavy pieces to prevent dents to your new floor.
