Do your vinyl planks provide moldings for their floors?
Yes, all of our floors have corresponding color-coordinated moldings. All standard moldings profiles are available and can be purchased through our network of specialty floor covering retailers at the time you purchase your floor.
What is Drop Locked?
Drop Locked is a fast and easy-to-use installation system. Its unique design is not only easy to use, but it also creates a strong and seamless connection between planks and is guaranteed not to unlock for the life of the floor.
How should the Vinyl planks be staggered?
The first and last plank in a row should be a minimum of 16″ (40cm) long. Stagger the planks from row to row by a minimum of 16″ (40cm). This ensures the highest structural integrity of the installation and will result in problem-free installation for the lifetime of your floor.
In what direction should I install the Vinyl planks?
Typically, Vinly Planks flooring is installed parallel to the longest wall in the room, or perpendicular to the main window in the room. Installation direction is an opportunity to add your personal touch, so feel free to install in either orientation, or even diagonally! Technically, provided installation instructions are followed, there is no incorrect direction.
If SPC Vinyl is so stable, why is it necessary to leave an expansion gap?
Most substances expand and contract when subjected to heat and/or humidity � including your home�s construction materials. It is recommended to leave a 3/8″ (10mm) expansion gap around the perimeter of the room and all other objects (toe kicks, plumbing, etc.) to allow the floor to acclimate during seasonal changes. Expansion gaps will be covered by your wall base or quarter round once the floor is installed.
Why should I wait to install my Vinyl floor? Why does it need to be acclimated?
Although Vinyl is extremely dimensionally stable with negligible expansion properties, it is important to use best practices whenever possible. Extreme temperature changes in short periods of time may cause the product to expand/contract more than under normal use conditions. For this reason, a minimum 48-hour acclimation period is required prior to installation. This allows the planks to become conditioned to the installation environment and results in a problem-free installation.
What tools do I need to install my Vinyl floor?
No special tools are required for installing Vinyl Planks. Since Vinyl Planks can be cut by simply scoring and snapping planks no saws are required. Planks can be cut directly in the installation room with a scoring tool or utility knife without creating airborne dust. If desired, standard power cutting tools (table saw, chop saw, etc.) can also be used depending on preference.

Can I Install Vinyl Plank over concrete?
Yes. Concrete subfloors must be properly cured and allowed to dry for at least 60 days prior to installation. Older concrete floors should have a moisture test completed to ensure excessive moisture is not being emitted. A moisture barrier must be installed for all concrete subfloor installations. For specific instructions please review our Installation Guide.
Can I Install Vinyl Plank over the carpet?
No, carpet is not a suitable subfloor and must be removed prior to installing Vinyl Plank.
Do I need to install underlay prior to the installation of Vinyl Plank?
Yes, underlay should be used on all Vinly Plank installations if it’s not attached pad. Any underlay can also be used with vinyl plank floors provided they meet a specification of maximum 1.5mm thick and a crush of 10 tons or 14.25 psi.
What kind of subfloor prep is required?
Vinyl Plank floors can be installed over many types of subfloors as long as they meet the subfloor conditions outlined in our installation guide.
Can Vinyl Plank be installed on stairs?
Yes. Vinyl Plank floors can be installed on stairs. We recommend that you glue planks onto steps and use an accompanying stair nose molding. Planks and moldings should be closely inspected after installation to ensure they are properly secured and no tripping hazard exists. You can find specific instructions for stair installations in our Installation Guide
