1. Subfloor (ideally sprung subfloor) surface must be clean, dry, level, and smooth, with all screw holes and seams filled with wood putty, wood filler or taped over.
2. ReUseIt 2.0 is applied perpendicular to the floor surface. If your floor runs north-south, the ReUseIt 2.0 will run east-west.
3. ReUseIt 2.0 covers the entire floor surface.
4. As you roll out ReUseIt 2.0, you expose the adhesive on the bottom which will stick to your subfloor.
5. As one person slowly walks backwards unrolling ReUseIt 2.0, another person secures the adhesive to the subfloor by smoothing it out with a stiff bristle push broom or roller. See step 5 illustration. Rolling out vinyl flooring onto adhesive should always be done slowly and methodically.
6. When you reach a wall, cut ReUseIt 2.0 with a utility knife and start the next run. It is good to line up seams as close as possible; however, slight overlaps or gaps are OK. See step 5.
7. Roll out top flooring perpendicular to the
ReUseIt 2.0; make all rough cuts along wall perimeter, and let top flooring acclimate for at least 24 hours. If floor edges are damaged or deformed, seam areas may be overlapped by up to 1 inch and double or trace cut to realize two fresh edges. Do not make double cuts until step 12. See step6.
8. Roll your flooring up half way using a flooring tube. Do this one section at a time. Peel off the protective layer on ReUseIt 2.0 exposing the top adhesive. See step 8.
9. Gently roll flooring back into adhesive, making sure not to shift or change alignment of the flooring. Smooth out flooring from the center to the edges.
10. Repeat procedure on each half of the remaining sheets of flooring. Do not cut any seams at this time. See step 8.
11. Once all flooring has been affixed to the ReUseIt, roll each sheet one at a time from the center to the edges with a 75 to 100 lb. floor roller. See step 9.
12. Once entire floor surface has been rolled, double cut or scribe all seams. Be careful not to cut the ReUseIt 2.0 during this procedure. Cutting the ReUseIt 2.0 at the seam areas will weaken its ability to properly hold the seams closed. Once all seams have been cut, roll seam area with 75 to 100 lb. roller.
1. Room should be warm and dry. ReUseIt should not be used in damp areas or outside.
2. If a mistake is made and the floor gets tangled or misaligned, gently pull floor material up and try again. If ReUseIt gets dirty, damaged, or wet, cut damaged area out and lay in replacement piece.
3. Test ReUseIt 2.0 to confirm it will stick to your subfloor prior to installation.
ReUseIt 2.0 is designed to work with Stagestep subfloor systems and most plywood types, however, Stagestep cannot guaranty suitability with any system other than its own systems. Suitability should be tested prior to installation
The sticking power of ReUseIt 2.0 is less than normal double-faced tape. Remember, ReUseIt is designed to be removed and not render the subfloor or vinyl flooring unusable. Other permanent installation methods typically mean that the subfloor and vinyl floor cannot be used again It may be necessary to use double-faced tape or 4” seam tape to hold ReUseIt 2.0 to secure its leading edges.
Extreme heat can damage ReUseIt 2.0 resulting in its failure to bond flooring to subfloor. Call us if this is likely to happen or is happening. Use 4” seam tape available to fix this issue.
Do not overlap seams if doing so will compromise floor fit! Do not use ReUseIt 2.0 to install
Timestep T. Use double-faced tape and top tape. Overlap and double cutting will reduce coverage of material in the floor width. Please make sure that there is enough material to complete the job.
