Fill in holes in the subfloor with a patching compound using a small trowel. Allow the compound to settle a few hours before laying the vinyl.

Temporarily reinforce cut corners with masking tape to protect the vinyl from tearing. Roll out and tape craft paper to the subfloor. By using double-sided tape, the vinyl may be rolled over the craft paper. Spread adhesive material by using a fine-notched trowel along the edge of the wall. Use a hand roller or block of wood wrapped in a cloth to seat the flooring.
