stopping/starting VCT installation


I have more square footage to do than I can install in 1 day. Is there anything I need to know to stop and start back up, without it being obvious where I stopped? Does the glue stick up enough that I need to scrape it off, or do I even need to worry about it?

As thin as the adhesive goes on, I wouldn't worry if you go a couple inches more than you cover.

Do the math, stop applying adhesive where the tile installation for the day will end.

that wasn't really what i meant. I snapped a chalk line where i was stopping. Its hard to stop the glue EXACTLY on the line. I glued probably an 1/8" past the line in most spots, i wasn't sure if i needed to scrape the extra glue off the next day because that will make a highspot or does it matter. The next day do i just start glueing where i left off?

YES! Scrape off any overage before beginning again the next day. You will have lippage if you don't.
