Does Vinyl Plank Flooring Need to Acclimate
In short, yes. All flooring is recommended to acclimate to the surrounding environment. Why? Each house has different environmental factors such as moisture that can cause flooring material to shrink or swell. With that being said, the necessary acclimation period is shorter for some flooring materials.
For example, hardwood flooring needs to acclimate longer than LVP flooring. If the vinyl plank flooring materials arrive later than expected, it's not the end of the world. The first day or two of the flooring installation process is spent on tear up and floor prep. Typically, this ends up being enough time for vinyl plank to acclimate.
