We share these guidelines which, however, may vary based on the manufacturer.
For at least 48 hours before and after installation, the floor covering, adhesive, and room temperature must be kept between 65°F and 100°F.
If the epoxy adhesive is used, the temperature should not exceed 85°F.
Allow at least 48 hours for the flooring material to adapt to the temperature before installing it.
Begin with a clean job site and a prepared subfloor, as well as the removal of any unnecessary things.
Any solvents or adhesive from previous flooring, or other foreign debris must be removed from the substrate.
A subfloor that hasn’t been properly prepared might telegraph through the floor, causing uneven wear.
Nails like common steel nails, cement or rosin-coated nails, may cause discoloration.
With underlayment panels, only use non-staining fasteners.
Before you begin, double-check that each box contains the correct style, colour, and pattern number. Then, to minimise shade variation, make sure the dye lot numbers on each box are the same and mix tiles from each carton.
