Installation of Life Floor Slate Tiles is very easy and typically done by the customer. Instructions for installation of your new flooring are as follows:
- Measure the installation area to ensure you have enough tiles to cover the desired area.
- Find the center point of the installation area and mark and 'X' at this point
- Without applying any adhesive, lay the tiles out as you would want them to lay in the room without cutting any pieces. Ideally, start from the center of the room where you have marked the 'X'.
- Once you have completed the entire layout without adhesive, begin the adhesion process in the center of the room.
- Using a general paintbrush, evenly apply contact cement on the back of the tile and to the substrate where the tile will fit.
- Let both the back of the tile and the substrate area cure for approximately 5 minutes until the contact cement is tacky.
- Begin by laying down the tile one edge at a time. For all tiles after the first, align the edges tightly to the surrounding tile edges.
- Ensure each corner and edge are secure by applying pressure with the thumb and index finger.
- Using a general roller, apply pressure to the entire tile to secure the tile to the substrate.
- Tiles on the outer perimeter of the room may need to be cut to fit the space. Measure and cut accurately to ensure proper fit.
- If tile is installed in a wet area with drains, cut area over the drain to ensure proper drainage. In addition, you may drill holes in the tiles to allow water to drain through the tile.
