Apply Adhesive and Flooring
Always read manufacturer’s instructions when applying the adhesive. Using a V-notch trowel, apply the adhesive to floor in small sections. Only spread enough for a few rows at a time. Use a tapping block to click pieces together (Image 1). Stagger end joints from row to row. Tape seams together with painter’s tape (Image 2).
Tap 1/4-inch shims in between the edges of the floor and the wall to leave room for expansion (Image 3). Weight down the first few rows with something heavy, but use a rag underneath the weight to protect the floor. Use a damp cloth to clean off adhesive from surfaces. Let adhesive dry for 24 hours.
