Can glueless hardwood flooring be installed over existing vinyl? What
holds it down if glue is not used? I can lay vinyl both sheet and
squares so do you think I could lay flooring?
E mail works for me
Yes but we removed a vinyl floor when installing laminate and the
plastic smell underneath it was incredible. I'll never put vinyl in
another home. Clearly if it out gasses so much underneath some of it
must be getting into the home air.
You should be able to pout it down easily. The main thing is to make sure
the floor is reasonably level---otherwise it will be difficult.
Do not purchase Formica brand---that's one of the few laminates/glueless
that's nearly impossible for a homeowner to put down. I tried, ended up
hiring a professional---and many refused to touch the stuff.
