          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          A.Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly constructed and prepared.
          1.Concrete shall have a minimum compressive strength of 3500 psi per 150 pounds per cubic feet and be covered with a vapor barrier prior to construction of the subfloor.
          2.Floors shall be smooth, rigid, flat, level, permanently dry, clean, and free of all foreign materials such as dust, paint, grease, oils, solvents, curing and hardening compounds, sealers, bond breakers, asphalt and old adhesive, residue.
          3.Flat and level means, and the applicable parameter to maintain product warranties is 1/8 to 1/4 inch (3 to 6 mm) for every 10 feet (3048 mm). Subfloor preparation should be done with the permanent HVAC set 68 to 78 degrees F (20 to 25.5 degrees C) and humidity controlled at 40-60 percent.
          4.Concrete sub floors shall be cured and dry to industry standards. They shall have an adequate moisture barrier beneath and at the perimeter of the slab.
          5.Wood sub floors shall be structurally sound, and level. Loose boards and nails shall be secured and gaps filled.
 
          B.If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect in writing of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          A.Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
 
          B.Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, approved submittals, and in proper relationship with adjacent construction.
          1.Materials must be stored in an area that is fully enclosed and weather-tight, with a permanent HVAC system set to a uniform temperature of 68 degrees F (20 degrees C) and a relative humidity of 50 percent for at least 72 hours prior to and during the installation.
          2.Ensure that moisture tests of the concrete slab have been conducted and meet standard for moisture content. Have the permanent HVAC system turned on and set to a minimum of 68 to 78 degrees F (20 to 25.5 degrees C) and a relative humidity between 40 to 60 percent for a minimum of 72 hours prior to, during and after installation.
          3.Flooring material must be acclimatized to the installation area for a minimum of 24 hours prior to installation.
          4.Upon receipt, all rolls of vinyl flooring should be immediately removed from this pallet, inspected and stood upright on a perfectly level surface or leaned against a wall in the most upright position possible. Failure to do so may result in deformation of the vinyl product, for which Stagestep is not responsible, voiding the warranty.
 
          3.4FIELD QUALITY CONTROL
