Be sure that the floor is fitted using an adhesive designed specifically for use with LVT floors and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. For best results, avoid ‘general purpose’ adhesives. Choosing a ‘wet set’ LVT adhesive rather than a ‘pressure sensitive’ adhesive will usually allow the installer to achieve a tighter fit between the tiles and therefore a better overall appearance of the floor.
