Installation Guide

Parterre 5mm Loose Lay luxury vinyl flooring is simple to install and maintain with a specialized backing for providing traction to stay in place freely after installation. Adhesive can be applied around the perimeter for small spaces; a grid formation for larger spaces; or a full adhesive application may be used.

Prior to installation and for optimal results, it is important to discuss your installation with a Parterre Sales Representative and review Parterre’s Installation Guide for instructions and preparations.



For an installation space of 20 feet or under, a perimeter application is recommended. If the width or length of the installation space exceeds 20 feet, the use of a grid adhesive application is required. This will allow the installation space to have a stable border when installing the planks loosely within the area.



The substrate, adhesive and vinyl flooring must be acclimated in an enclosed building with the HVAC operational between 60-95°F (15-35°C), and between 30-65% relative humidity, for at least 72 hours before, during and after the installation. When installing over radiant heated subfloors, turn the heat off for 24 hours before, during and after installation.



Concrete, APA-approved plywood, radiant heated subfloors, existing well-bonded non-cushion-backed vinyl flooring, and more.
