High costs were preventing St Timothy’s Lutheran Church in Skokie, Illinois, from having the new flooring it required. The existing VCT floor (vinyl composition tile) needed to be removed but was found to contain asbestos, which would complicate the project and add further time and expense.

Fortunately, the flooring contractor knew of InstaLay, the self-adhesive flooring installation system, which would be ideal for installing the new flooring. As it could be loose laid over the existing floor tiles they did not have to be removed and, with no wet adhesives or open times, significant time and money could be saved.

Starting in the centre of the floor, the InstaLay 25hg was rolled out across the floor at a 45° angle to the walls. This ensured that, when the new LVT flooring was installed, none of the tile edges would coincide with the InstaLay roll edges.

As the release film was removed to reveal InstaLay’s adhesive membrane, the LVTs were simply positioned and pressed into place. The installation was extremely quick and clean, with the new flooring completed in just two days.

Using InstaLay provided various benefits:

  • It overcame the need to tear up the VCT floor, which avoided disturbing the asbestos and saved considerable time and money.
  • Being loose laid, it was very quick and easy to install.
  • The LVT flooring could be walked on immediately after installation, with InstaLay’s rubber crumb construction providing excellent underfoot comfort.

The customer was very pleased with the look and feel of the new floor – and delighted at the overall cost.
