Weber Flooring

Pre-Install Checklist | Vinyl




Vinyl has come a long way in style and design. Offered in sheets, tiles and planks, today’s vinyl floors offer superior styles with easy maintenance. 


Please be aware of the following that may exist before and after installation. 



Vinyl Tiles And Plank Floors

These products by nature are designed to have a “tile” or “wood” appearance. You will notice lines and

minor gaps in these products. Color and style will greatly affect the visibility of lines and gaps.


Groutable Vinyl

The grout used is very similar to ceramic grout. Grout must cure 42 hours before applying any water to the floor. You may notice a slight grout haze after the grouting is done. This can be buffed off24 hours after the grout has been installed with a damp towel or sponge. Grout must be cleaned and sealed to keep it looking good.



Do not move any heavy appliances or objects across your floor without protecting it first. Vinyl can tear and gouge. Protect your floor by installing felt pads on all furniture and chairs. Rolling chairs can damage a vinyl floor quickly. Keep the area where rolling chairs are free of sand and dirt. There is no warranty against damage caused by rolling chairs.



Wall/Baseboards/Ceiling Nail Pops

Our installers will use caution while in your home to prevent marking baseboards and walls,

however some minor scratching and marking can occur during removing your old flooring. Weber Flooring is not responsible nor do we reimburse for minor scratches, marks and nail pops in ceilings.



Weber does not remove and reinstall pedestal sinks. It is recommended that if a toilet needs to be pulled and later reset that this be performed by a trained plumber. This is due to our experiences finding many of the toilets in need of maintenance or repair prior to installation. Weber will provide this service but since our flooring installers are not licensed plumbers- all leaks must be reported within 14 days after the toilets are reset for this service to be warranted.


Floor Prep/Unforeseen Subfloor Issues

While the estimator is in your home he/she will determine what is needed to properly prepare your subfloor for installing your vinyl floor. There are times unforeseen issues that will arise upon removing your existing floor. If items such as old adhesives, loose subfloor, rot, insect damage or mold are found it must be addressed before installing your new vinyl floor. lf we can repair the floor an extra charge will apply. In some cases another contractor at which point your floor will not be installed until the damage is repaired must perform repairs. Weber Flooring is not responsible for unforeseen issues.



Please remove all personal items, clothing, toys, small furniture, breakables, remove china from hutch, empty bottoms of closets, remove linens from beds, remove drawers from dressers, disconnect and remove any electronics, computers, TV’s, and disconnect water and gas lines from appliances. We do not assemble or disassemble furniture – including beds. It is important to have this completed before the installer arrives at your home. We will remove doors and re-hang them as needed; however if they need to be cut the installer will leave them off so you can arrange to have them cut. We do not cut doors. Weber Flooring does not move delicate items such as grandfather clocks, pianos, large entertainment units and pool tables. Please make arrangements in advance to have these items moved. Your HY AC system must be operational for us to install your floor. The temperature must remain at a minimum of 65 degrees.


Electrical/Alarm Wires And Pipes

Weber Flooring is not responsible for cut, pierced or broken electrical/alarm wires or pipes that are improperly placed/ran in walls, along baseboards, under floors and not in accordance with your local building code. 

You must be present when the installers arrive to review the job, confirm selections, colors, placement of decos/listellos and pay your balance. Weber Flooring is not responsible for any claims due to color, placement or overall appearance once the tile is installed. Please understand an extra service charge may apply for any extra work incurred due to unforeseen problems with your subfloor/walls or lack of proper preparation leading to extra time spent on your job by the installers.
