    My LVP project is finally getting underway. It has no padding so I’m using the recommended underlayment. It’s on a roll. Can I affix it on my concrete in some places to keep it from shifting while I work. I’m taping it together with duct tape too. When we did our trial room I noticed that the underlayment shifted as did the LVP. The LVP you address in my blueprint instruction.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes you can glue the pad down to stop it from moving. This works, it just takes about a half hour to dry enough to stick well.

      Duct tape is perfect for the seams.

        Can I just use that glue in spots but not all over just to tack it down here and there to help from movement?

      Thanks sorry, just one more question. Should I just add underlayment as I go or lay it out for the kitchen say and then when I come to my snapped line outside the kitchen I lay the living room underlayment–attaching it to the kitchen in one continuous set of rows. My worry is that the cats may try to claw it if it’s down too long. I also want to make sure I snap lines on affixed underlayment or concrete.

      Thanks

    Yes, just lay it as you go.
