Preparation - Underlayment and Subfloor


An unprepared crawl space in a building or mobile home is very susceptible to humidity and temperature variations that cause subfloor and underlayment to expand. These conditions may force joints together and cup upwards, to cause seam ”telegraphing”.

Check and assure the following site conditions are met:

  • A sealed vapor barrier must be on the ground and adequate cross ventilation provided along walls.

  • A minimum 18” clearance must be provided between the bottom of floor joists and ground.

  • Landscape grading and rain troughs must be provided to assure moisture is moved away from foundation walls.

If site conditions cannot be corrected, contact the vinyl floor covering manufacturer for recommendations or consider installing a perimeter-fastened vinyl system instead of a fully adhered system.
