Most Common Mistakes

  1. When estimating the amount of sheet vinyl, forgetting to account for pattern matching at a seam.
  2. Unrolling sheet vinyl too early, or waiting too long to lay it, thereby causing it to shrink before it is permanently laid in place.
  3. Neglecting to use flooring materials with the compatible adhesive and appropriate trowel at seams.
  4. If you are applying a seamed floor, not laying the smaller section first.
