I need to remove and replace the bathroom vinyl floor.
There is water leak from the tub into below the vinyl floor and cause the

available to look like ceramic tile.
Although, technically speaking, most vinyl flooring is laminated with
two or more distinctly different layers, it is considered sheet
flooring unless you are using individual vinyl squares.
