Roll Out the Vinyl
Once the floor is clean and thoroughly dry, set the new vinyl in place. Make sure it is straight and then use a straight edge to trim it along the walls (Image 1).
At the carpet, trim the vinyl back to fit just underneath the edge.
Once the vinyl is trimmed and in position, roll half the vinyl back and begin applying the adhesive. Use a trowel with 1/8” teeth and spread the adhesive (Image 2) evenly. It is important to cover all the floor with adhesive — do not leave any bare spots. Because it is concrete, you can apply the vinyl after the adhesive is on the floor. Roll half the vinyl onto the adhesive.
