Step 1 Prepare for Installing Vinyl Plank Flooring
Vinyl plank flooring, such as Lifeproof, doesn’t require acclimation if stored properly - horizontally and in a dry area away from sunlight. Order 10% more flooring than your square footage to account for cuttings and waste. Check your subfloor for moisture and make sure it’s level to within ¼-inch in a 10 foot span. Vinyl planks can be installed above or below grade on most surfaces including concrete and tile. Do not install vinyl over carpet, laminate and floating floors. Always refer to manufacturer instructions as installing vinyl on the wrong subfloor can void the product’s warranty.
