When we did the kitchen in our house about 5 years ago we were told by the
floor fitter that installing a cushionfloor type covering on a bitumen
covered concrete floor base was not recommended as, eventually, the bitumen
will 'bleed through' as dark stains on the newly installed floor covering.
I didn't totally believe him but it turns out to be true, they bled through
after a few years. We just live with it.
The situation now though is that |I am about to replace the kitchen floor
covering on a property we are renovating, and it has a bitumen floor.
I have heard that thick brown paper covering will prevent the bleed through.
I've been told, by a flooring supplier, that we need to paint the floor with
flooring paint to prevent the problem.
What should I do?
