Before starting work it is necessary to rest in bed material, align and acclimatise.The room in which the installation will be a vinyl tile, observe temperature at 20 degrees, but not less than 15 degrees.Provision of conditions needed to achieve a good elasticity of the new floor.Furthermore, this avoids swelling material shrinkage glue and other deformation changes.

Vinyl tile is moisture, if it produce enough laying on a dry surface, the remaining moisture will accumulate under the material, causing the destruction of the coating.It is therefore necessary to maintain the relative humidity of the base at a level below 3%.Under these conditions, the concrete base in wet areas will need waterproofing.

What will it take for the device ↑

for laying vinyl tile you need the following tools and materials:

  • Roulette for accurate measurements during installation;
  • Marking cord;
  • knife blade for flooring;
  • Pencil;
  • Metal angle (protractor);
  • spatula to evenly distribute the glue;
  • Smooth rubber roller;
  • wet sponge or rag for cleaning glue residues from the tiles;
  • Clay;
  • vinyl tiles.

With simple measurements need to find the center of the room.With roulette calculate the middle two opposite walls.Then connect them to each other marking cord.Next, we find the middle from the intended line and a metal gon Measure out the right angle.Draw a second line perpendicular to the first.Along the lines planned to be installed in vinyl tiles.

Conducting work starts from the center of the room.This is due to the fact that the internal walls may not have exactly right angles, but when laying on one of these walls can occur along the remaining slots.Care should be taken so that the edges of the tiles were of the planned lines.

When the installation should avoid unnecessary air from entering under the cover suits.In order to ensure uniform application of the adhesive in the required amount should use special notched trowel having replaceable blades to achieve the desired flow of the adhesive.
