NEW YORK SERIES 5G CLICK SPC PLANK INSTALLATION GUIDE
Intended for indoor residential and commercial use only, The New York series
is suitable for above-grade, on-grade, and below-grade applications.
Installations outside these recommendations are NOT warrantable.
The New York series is a floating floor and as such, should be allowed to
expand and contract freely. It must NOT be glued, nailed, or fastened to the
substrate in any way. Install permanent cabinets, vanities, island counters, and
similar items first, then fit the New York series around them, leaving a ¼”
space for expansion and contraction.
For the Best Visual Representation of Your Floor
The New York series uses high variation print technology with embossed
register designs for an incredibly natural look and feel. For the best visual
effect, open several boxes and “dry lay” the floor before completely laying the
Before You Start
Perform a pre-install product inspection, examining the flooring’s color, gloss,
finish, and quality. Although the New York series has strict quality
manufacturing standards on color consistency regardless of Lot Number, it is
recommended that the flooring come from the same Lot Number. Lot Number
is indicated on the side label of each box. If you are satisfied with your preinstall product inspection, proceed.
Storage, Handling Care, and Precautions
• Protect carton corners from damage.
• Must be stored flat, horizontally, and stacked no more than six cartons high
at all times to acclimate cartons thoroughly top to bottom.
• Improper storage can result in warping and difficult assembly.
• Storage area and job site should be climate-controlled with temperatures of
20° – 29°C.
• Do not install the New York series over carpeting or an underlayment pad.
Conditions to Avoid:
Avoid installations in sunrooms, solariums, saunas, or any outdoor use. We do
not recommend installing this product in rooms that are not temperature-controlled. Avoid long-lasting exposure of flooring to direct sunlight. Extreme
solar exposure, heat, and extreme temperature changes can damage the
• All substrates must be structurally sound and free from movement or
• The substrate must be clean, dry, flat, and free of any defects. Carpet staples
or glue residue must be removed.
• To support the locking system, the subfloor must be flat within 3/16” per 10’
• Smooth and level all irregularities with a (Portland) cement base or synthetic
gypsum patching and leveling compound.
• Concrete subfloors shall be properly cured and allowed to dry for a minimum
of 90 days before installation.
• Always execute the most current version of either the RH Test (ASTM
F2170) or Calcium Chloride Test (ASTM F1869) and pH Test (ASTM F710)
prior to installation. Results for RH Test should not exceed 85% relative
• Calcium Chloride Moisture Test for the moisture should measure no more than 8
lbs. per 1000 square feet in 24 hours MVER. The pH Tests for alkalinity levels
should register between 7 and 9. If moisture levels exceed 85% RH or 8 lbs.
per 1000 square feet in 24 hours MVER and /or the alkalinity level is 9 or
higher, a moisture barrier must be installed over the concrete.
• Prepare concrete substrates in conformance with ASTM F710. New
concrete, including lightweight gypsum toppings, should cure for at least 90
days before conducting moisture tests.
• Suspended wood subfloors shall have a minimum of 18” of well-ventilated air
space clearance above the ground.
• Allow wood floors to breathe – do not apply sheet plastic over bare wood
• A moisture vapor retarder shall be installed over the crawl space with
overlapping widths and lengths.
• Wood subfloors must be constructed according to local building codes and
be structurally sound with no deflection.
• Sand or plane down high spots. Repair squeaky floor prior to installation.
• Smooth and level all irregularities with a (Portland) cement base or synthetic
gypsum patching and leveling compound.
Existing Sheet and Tile Flooring
• Existing flooring must be fully adhered to and in good condition.
• Existing floating floor must be removed.
• Repair any damaged areas.
• Heavily cushioned vinyl floor or vinyl floor consisting of multiple layers are not
suitable as a subfloor.
• Ceramic tile and terrazzo installed must meet flatness requirements. Make
smooth by applying a cement overlay, or suitable patching or leveling
compound to smooth out surface and grout joints.
• The New York series is suitable for installation over radiant heating systems
provided that the heating element is not in direct contact with the flooring.
• New heating systems should be running two weeks before installation to
remove residual moisture.
• Lower temperature of heating system to 60° F for one week prior to
• Gradually increase temperature after installation of flooring in increments of
10° F per day to avoid “shock” to the New York series.
• Surface temperature should neither exceed nor sustain 29.4°C.
Conditioning / Acclimation
Acclimate the flooring in unopened box for 48 hours at ideal room
temperature range between 20° – 29°C. Conditions in which the floor was
acclimated should be maintained for 48 hours pre- and post-installation. Avoid
drastic temperature changes as they may cause the New York series to
expand and contract excessively resulting in gaps. The best practice is to keep in-
service temperatures as close to the temperature at the time of acclimation as
• Remove existing shoe molding, quarter round, and doorway transition
mouldings. Old or new mouldings must be of sufficient size to cover the ¼”
expansion area around the perimeter of the floor. For ¼” expansion spaces
that cannot be covered by base moulding, silicone caulking may be used to fill
the expansion gap for a more finished appearance. The silicone caulk remains
flexible, allowing the floor to continue to expand/contract over the course of its
lifetime while preventing dirt from collecting in the gap.
• Leave at least ½” between the surface of the flooring and the bottom of
electric baseboard heaters to allow circulation.
• Undercut door moldings and casings to allow the flooring to fit underneath
without restriction. Sweep and/or vacuum substrate to remove all dirt and
• After installation, it may be necessary to trim the bottom of any doors to
allow for any change in floor height.
• Do not fit this floor tight against any fixed, vertical objects (ex. walls, pipes,
passageways, staircases). Again, a minimum of ¼” expansion space is
required around the perimeter of the room as well as any fixed objects. • All
floating floors require that cabinets be installed before installing the new
• Determine in which direction the planks will be installed. To make the room
appear larger or if installing in very small rooms or hallways, it is preferable to
lay the planks parallel to the longest room dimension.
• Carefully measure the room to determine squareness and to determine the
width of the last row of planks. If the width of the last row of planks is less than
2” excluding the tongue, cut and adjust the width of first row of planks
• Inspect all planks for visible defects and damage before and during
installation. Do not install damaged planks. Home’s Pro will NOT accept
responsibility for claims on flooring installed with obvious defects.
• During installation, inspect the groove area for any debris that may prevent
proper assembly of planks.
Staggered Layout Prep
To begin a staggered layout, the tongue side of the plank shall face the
starting wall, groove-side facing outwards. Begin laying planks on the left side
of the starting wall, working to the right. For best overall appearance, use
either option (a) or (b):
a. Start with a full plank for the first row, a 1/2 plank for the second row and a
1/3 plank for the third row. Repeat until completion.
b. Start with a full plank for the first row, a 1/2 plank for the second row, and a
full plank for the third row. Repeat until completion.
NOTE: For rooms larger than 60’ in any direction, a T-Molding is required to
account for the normal movement of the floor. When possible, T-moldings
should be utilized in areas such as doorways and archways.
NOTE: The last row of planks may need to be cut lengthwise to obtain the
proper width. The width of the last row shall not be less than 2”. Align a plank
that has been cut to the correct length exactly over the first plank in the
previous row. Lay a scrap plank over top of the plank to be cut and mark the
distance with a pencil. Cut each plank accordingly. When performing this
step, remember to allow for proper spacing between the wall and the last row
The First Row
When assessing the layout for the first row, dry lay all the full-length planks
that fit in that row. More than likely, the last plank will need to be cut to
complete the row. First, measure the distance between the wall and the
surface of the last full plank. Subtract ¼” from this measurement to allow for
the spacer. If this measurement is less than 11”, the length of first plank in the
row should also be adjusted. This will allow for a longer plank at the end of the
row. The first and last plank in each row should be at least 11” in length. With
the first row assessed, cut the necessary planks and start by placing ¼”
spacers between the short and long side of the planks and the wall.
Working from left to right, lay the planks in the row by first locking the long
side in place, lifting the outside edge and sliding to the previous plank. Fold
down and press or tap the end joint downward to lock together. Continue to
the end of the first row.
The remaining piece cut off from the last plank in the first row will serve as the
starter, or first, plank in the second row provided it is at least 11” long. There
must be at least 8” between plank end joints on adjacent rows.
Second and Consecutive Rows
For the First Plank of the second row, position plank with short end-side
against the wall and the long side along the first row. Remember to place a ¼”
spacer between the wall and the plank. Lock the long edge of the plank by
inserting the tongue into the groove at an angle and drop into place (see a).
For each Subsequent Plank in a given row, again lock the long edge of the
plank by inserting the tongue into the groove at an angle and drop into place
(see a). Then repeat Step 2.
NOTE: The lock joints cannot be ‘lifted’ or angled apart when removing or
repositioning a plank. To remove a plank, first disengage the top/long angle
joint by lifting at a slight angle while pulling the complete rows away from each
other. Then simply ‘slide’ the drop joint apart along the floor. Failure to slide
this joint apart will damage the drop lock mechanism and prevent proper
reinstallation of the affected plank.
Use a hammer and a tapping block to tap the long edge of the plank to ensure
a tight fit. Any gapping can compromise the locking system. If you do not have
a tapping block, you may cut off a scrap piece of floor and use it as a tapping
block. When tapping, make sure the scrap piece is locked with the plank you
Attach a scrap piece of floor to bridge the gap between ends of planks. Lock
and tap until planks are aligned and fully locked.
Use a hammer and a pull bar to lock the long edges of planks for the final row.
Cutting Around Pipes
1. Measure the distance from the wall to the center of the pipe. Mark the
plank where the hole for the pipe will be drilled. Remember to allow for the ¼”
2. Measure the diameter of the pipe. With a utility knife, cut the hole in the
plank ¼” larger than the diameter of the pipe.
3. If the hole for the pipe is located in the center of the plank, make a cut
perpendicular to the long side of the plank. The cut should be made going
directly through the hole.
4. If the hole for the pipe is located near the edge of the plank, make two 45º
angle cuts to the hole from the side of the plank closest to the hole.
5. You can now position the two pieces around the pipe.
6. Fill the expansion space around the perimeter of the pipe completely with a
high-quality silicone caulking.
Finishing the Installation / Floor Care
• Remove spacers from perimeter of the room. For tubs, showers, and all wet
areas, use a high-quality silicone caulking to fill the expansion space to
prevent water seepage under the floor.
• Install transition moldings. Do not fasten transitions through the floor.
• Install quarter round or baseboard moulding. Moulding must be sufficient
size to cover the ¼” expansion space. Do not fasten mouldings through the
floor. Fasten into the wall. Again, for any ¼” expansion spaces that cannot be
covered by base moulding, silicone caulking may be used to fill the expansion
gap for a more finished appearance.
• Use plywood, luan, paneling or Masonite when moving furniture or
• Use coasters or proper floor protectors under the legs of furniture.
• Home’s pro Rigid core products can be maintained by using a dry Swiffer
mop or cleaned with vinyl floor cleaners. Do NOT use abrasive cleaners.
• Scratches are site related, and thus, not warrantable.
NOTE: Home’s Pro does not warrant installers’ workmanship. Workmanship
errors should be addressed to the contractor who installed the floor. Your
New York series flooring should be professionally installed by contractors who
have demonstrated expertise in installing resilient floors.
