Many homeowners take to installing Armstrong vinyl flooring on their own, which is fine but you just have to take your time. Of course, you can always hire a professional to install it for you. If you are going to do it yourself, go slow. Cut pieces too big rather than too small or too close. You can always trim it if it is too long. Any time you are measuring something it is best to measure twice and cut once as they say. The floor you are working on must be clean and level before the application of the adhesive. To avoid air pockets, roll it out evenly. If at anytime, you are unsure of what to do, call a professional for assistance. You do not want to do a poor job.
