One tip for installing Mannington vinyl floor tiles is to cut the tiles with a vinyl cutter and use a cutter's tray before depressing the blade through the tile. Also, you should take the dry tiles off the floor in the opposite order, and then stack them for easy access.

To start the installation process, make a chalk line from the center of one wall to the other, and then spread a small amount of adhesive onto that line. Next, comb the adhesive out and allow it to sit until the valleys begin to look clear, but not all of the adhesive should look clear. Next, install the tiles in the same pattern as the dry fit tiles. After all tiles are set, roll the floor with a 100-pound roller, pushing it in overlapping strokes to ensure the tiles and adhesive bond.
