Tag Archives: expansion joint

There is no problem in having Marmoleum Click in all the bedrooms and continuing in hallways, as long as the length of the floor in any one direction does not exceed 26′. If the length of the floor exceeds 26′, it is advisable to have an expansion joint.  Expansion joints are created to allow the movement in the material due to temperature changes. (Contraction in winter, and expansion during summer.) This means if any continuous segment of the floor measures more than 26′ in length, you should consider breaking it up with a transition strip. Ideally, this can be done in a door threshold for a bedroom or similar locations in case of large spaces.

In our home, we were just below 26′, and so enjoy the continuous flow without any break!
