PRIOR TO INSTALLATION ▪This is high quality vinyl floor that if maintained, will last for years. If not protected properly, as with other floor covering such as hardwood and laminate, it will scratch. Scratches may be caused by pets, furniture, rocks from shoes, and many other abrasive items. ▪Allow for 5% waste from installation and cut pieces. ▪Carefully check flooring material for any defects. Contact your supplier immediately if any defect is found. ▪Acclimate flooring in room where it is to be installed at a constant temperature between 65° and 85°F for 48 hours or more before, during, and after installation.

▪Remove quarter round, baseboard molding or cove base. ▪Undercut doorway moldings to the thickness of the flooring. ▪Always store cartons horizontally on a smooth, solid, flat, clean surface. ▪Protect carton corners from damage ▪Remove all furniture and appliances from room. ▪Do not stack higher than ten cartons-do not stack anything on uninstalled vinyl planks. ▪ Mix in and install planks from several different cartons during installation to insure a random appearance

▪Install kitchen cabinets prior to installing Featherweight® Vinyl planks ▪Do not install base cabinets or island cabinets on top of the floor ▪Do not install in front of patio doors without proper uv window coverings ▪Avoid exposure to long periods of direct sunlight.
