What temperature guidelines do you use when installing a new sheet vinyl floor? Do you try and keep the room over 40-50 degrees for a couple hours, for the first day or two...for the next week...what?
In order to get a furnace set up, the utility room needs to be finished early. That means the vinyl needs to go down. Currently the house is only occasionally heated by kerosene heaters. There is a roof and exterior walls, but no ceiling and interior walls are studs, so the heat doesn't tend to stick around very long.
I've put up plastic on the ceiling of the utility room and am considering either temporarily putting plastic up on the walls (to hold heat in), or to get a few rolls of fiberglass insulation and staple that up (which becomes sound insulation when the house is finished).
I guess I'm not excited by the prospect of maintaining an uninsulated room at a certain temp, and was just wondering how long I'd have to keep it heated for the vinyl adhesive to fully cure so that I wouldn't have issues with the floor in the future.
