When choosing luxury vinyl plank or tile, you may have to consider acclimation before installation. This eases the problems that could occur with expansion or contraction.

In today's post, we will tell you more about this process. Read along to find out if you need to acclimate your luxury vinyl flooring.

The necessity of acclimation

Acclimation is essential if you're installing luxury vinyl flooring in certain areas. Depending on the location, the process can last from 24 hours to three days.

Luxury vinyl flooring
adapts as humidity and temperatures adjust between the flooring and the environment. As a result, expansion and contraction are less likely to occur.

Expanding luxury vinyl

Expanding is often an issue if you skip or short the acclimation process. As the environment changes, you might see buckling, waving, and warping in certain areas, especially basements.

A floating floor is less likely to take on lasting damage from this. You can call us at first sight of any flooring distress.

Installation after acclimation

Once the acclimation is complete, we can begin the luxury vinyl flooring installation. We'll tell you precisely what you can expect once you choose the specific materials and services you want and need.
