proper installation of linoleum floor?

Answer:

It all depends on how you want to put it down. It is very important to have a smooth sub-floor as most surfaces will transfer any imperfections to the new floor i.e. bumps,dirt,and even patterns from previous flooring. You can either do a floating floor, where you just lay it down. Then there is a full spread glue down, where you glue the entire surface of the floor down. finally, there is just doing a perimeter glue down where you just glue down the floor around the edges. It gets a little tricky if your room is larger than the usual 12' width that the flooring rolls come on and especially if you have a pattern match. Seams need to be very tight so they are not noticable. After the floor has been put down it need's to be rolled with a very heavy roller to adhere the floor to the glue and remove any air pockets left.
