3 tips to know before installing LVT

LVT installed

The look and feel of Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) creates the ambience of an expensive look yet giving you the creativity to choose from a variety of patterns and colors. LVT is softer and feels warmer underfoot than ceramic tiles. The added benefit? It’s easier to replace if damaged and easier to work around cabinets, existing door openings and transitions thanks to its low profile. It also can be installed on most existing floors!

Always make sure that you are working with a clean, smooth, flat and dry floor/sub-floor.

Below are tips to know before installing LVT.

  • Acclimate the flooring a minimum of 24 hours before installation.
  • Make sure to leave ¼” space around all walls, cabinets and any obstacles in the floor.
  • Measure the room to determine where you will end up on the last row. If the planks/tiles in the last row are less than 2-3” wide, you’ll want to adjust in the first row.
