Linoleum is still the most durable flooring. There are two ways to fix on the floor: nailing and gluing with special glue. Heated linoleum rolls are cut according to the required dimensions, but it is necessary to make an allowance for shrinkage – 3-4 centimeters for every 10 meters of linoleum. If the base of the floor consists of boards. Then the joints of linoleum should pass in the middle of the board.

With complex outlines of the floor, linoleum is laid out, the excess is noted and cut off. In the corridors, linoleum is often laid dry. Prepare the floor, sweep carefully and roll out the linoleum. The edges to the wooden base are nailed every five centimeters. But the edges are quickly destroyed from water ingress when washing the floor, so it is better to glue them or cover them with special rails.
When laying without gluing, the linoleum is rolled out, allowed to rest for three weeks, then the plinth is removed, the floor is swept, the joints are nailed or glued, at the end the plinth is put back.
At linoleum with a pattern, cut off the edges and make sure that the pattern matches exactly. The first canvas is glued, and two days later the edge of the second canvas is glued. A load is placed on the edges and after two days the entire canvas is glued.
If the linoleum consists of three parts, then first glue the middle one, and two days later the edges of the extreme canvases. To avoid trouble from shrinkage or stretching of linoleum, first glue a strip of 200 millimeters, when it dries well, gluing the entire linoleum.
