Installing the first row
Cut off the unsupported tongue of the first row so that a clean, solid edge is toward the wall.
Start installation from the corner of the wall. Tongue side must start facing the wall and it is careful to leave ½ inch expansion space. Install the planks from left side to right side.
Continue Installing Vinyl Plank Flooring.
Install the next plank in the first row by angling the short side tongue into the short side of the first plank.
Shift the plank down towards the end seam and lightly lift the previous plank to engage the end joints together.
Use the same method to complete the installation of the first row. Place the short end tongue of the next floor panel at an angle against the previously installed floor panel and fold gently down. Using gentle force and at an angle, you gradually, from left to right, push the long side tongue into the locking groove of the previous row. Complete the whole row in the same way.
Installing Final Row: The last row may need to be cut lengthwise (ripped). Make sure ripped piece is at least 1/3 the size of the overall width of the plank. Place the last row of boards to be fit on top of the last row of installed boards. Use a piece of plank or tile as a scribe to trace the contour of the wall. Mark where the board will be cut. If the fit of the wall is simple and straight, simply measure for the correct fit and cut.
After boards are cut, position boards and tap all joints (long AND short ends) with the rubber mallet.
