3) Measure twice, cut once. Measure room properly so that you get right amount of vinyl. Don’t forget to add in for any jogs in room. Make a template of exact floor using builders paper and transfer that template onto vinyl using washable pen. This way you can get a pretty close cut that you can just fit in.
4) Let your vinyl acclimate. Let your new flooring sit in room for 24 hours before you install it.
5) Follow Instructions. Follow manufacturers instructions for laying floor. Typically, you will apply adhesive to half and roll that out, then do other half. Use a roller to make sure it adheres well – roll from middle out to edges.
6) Refrain from walking on your new floor for 24 hours.
