We’ve put together our best steps and practices so that you can be prepared for the unexpected and so that your rooms will be displaced for the minimal amount of time. Every installation is unique and different rooms have specific considerations so let's get started now…

Installing Vinyl Floors | Corvin's Floors & Cabinets

If your new design refresh involves painting, make sure all the painting has been completed before the new luxury vinyl flooring installation begins. Are your new vinyl floors replacing old floors altogether or are they installed as floating floors? Luxury vinyl flooring is an incredible product that can solve most subfloor imperfections if needed! If you are installing your new luxury vinyl as a floating floor, the flooring height will rise, and you will need to adjust your doors beforehand so that they will fit once the new floors are down. Remove your baseboards and trim, and shave doors down now!

It goes without saying that you will need to properly clear the area where your new vinyl floors are going! Remove all furniture and items from the floors and closets, remove all framed pieces off the walls, and disconnect all appliances and electronics. This step may take an extra day in advance when it comes to relocating sizeable furniture like couches or pool tables. From curtains to aquariums, these rooms need to be completely emptied. New luxury vinyl flooring needs to acclimate for 48-72 hours beforehand. Consider designating a work zone for your installers to keep their tools, saws, and resize the luxury vinyl as needed.

We always recommend that you ventilate the home with fresh air by opening windows and turning on fans during installation and up to 24 hours after. Keep all children and pets safely away from tools, materials, and the luxury vinyl installation process. Block out your calendar for the installation days so that you can be responsive to your installation crew for any conflicts that arise or to answer questions about your household. Most luxury vinyl floating floors are ready for foot traffic immediately! If your vinyl floors are glued down, they will need to set for at least 48 hours.
