Basics of Installation

1. All flooring types require 1/4" spacers around the perimeter of the installation area throughout the installation process.

2. It is important to create a stagger amongst rows and maintain it throught the remainder of the installation.

3. Mix planks from different boxes to increase the randomization throughout the room.

4. To finish the flooring installation, use transitions and moldings to cover the 1/4" gap at the perimeter.

Overview of Installation Steps

1. Set 1/4" spacers before installing the first row. Continue through the entirety of the installation.

2. Connect planks by laying the tongue over the groove.

3. Using a soft-faced hammer, square the joints by tapping the long edge with the profiled tapping block, then lightly tap the short joint.

4. Before starting the next row, cut the first plank you will use, to two-thirds its length, or at least 8” shorter to create a stagger.

5. Maintain the stagger throughout the remainder of the installation.

6. In the final row, install the plank with the cut side facing the wall. Use a pull bar to lock the long edges together. Continue with the remainder of the row.
