Can vinyl flooring be installed over ceramic tile flooring?
Definitly do not do this. Out with the old in with the new.
Or only if u have to save money, and only if the tile is horriffic. Would hve to smooth tile with leveler.
yes you can but it is not recommended to install ceramic tiles over vinyl
I do not think that is a good idea.The rubber flooring should be removed and then new ceramic flooring should be laid on.
Properly. NO! The correct way to do it would be to rip out the tile and start from scratch with a new subfloor for the sheet vinyl to be installed on.
Not directly as the ceramic tiles will soon show through the vinyl flooring. If the ceramics are laid on a wooden floor, you must take up the tiles and overboard with 6mm plywood. If the tiles are on a concrete floor, you can leave them down and lay a latex screed on top to provide you with a smooth floor for your vinyl
Only if the vinyl was previously installed over concrete, and has a positive bond. Scar the finish of the vinyl with a hand sander (course paper), and use a high strength thinset for the installation.
Yes but you may want to apply a leveling compound between the two vinyls and also take care to make sure the original vinyl is well stuck otherwise they will both end up coming off the floor.
Many things can go over ceramic with ease, but the "best" option is one which works in the room you're doing. For example, laminate flooring is most forgiving of the unevenness (groutlines) of ceramic tile and easiest to install - but I would not put laminate in a bathroom (it's not moisture resistant). For a bathroom, the best option over ceramic is sheet vinyl. Be sure to use leveling compound to smooth grout lines even… Read More
It is best to remove the vinyl tile. If it is not on cement and is on wood you can install cement backer board. Be sure to put thin set under the board. If you spend the money and time to install ceramic tile and the vinyl tile comes loose all that $ is down the drain What is the best tile cement to use and this cement tile can be installed on vinyl tile… Read More
Yes it's possible. But installation can be unreliable. So better to ask about it to home experts. If you are looking for Ceramic tile for order then you can get it easily through stores like "BuilderoutletUSA"
ABSOLUTELT NOT, the lam will buckle & throw the tile off, carck the grout & generally cause the end of life as we know it....
You can put pretty much all types of flooring over the tile as long as it is not loose.
Yes, laminate flooring can be laid over vinyl flooring, however, there are some considerations. First of all, inspect your vinyl flooring for any damage. Acordian style tears will create a "bump" in your finished laminate floor, which will be visibly noticeable, and it won't wear well. Large tears that result in missing pieces of vinyl will cause a "dip" in your finished laminate floor, which is also not a desireable result. Either and/or both of… Read More
a good quality vinyl well looked after should last over 20+ years
yes - of course
If the vinyl adhesive is hard and has no lumps then you can, but use a compatible adhesive, not thinset cement.
It is not always a good idea to lay granite tiles over the existing ceramic tile flooring. Why? The old ceramic tile flooring would have already aged and lost the strength. Since the flooring would have developed cracks and got loosened at many places. In order to lay granite tiles newly over the ceramic tiles, you need to prepare the surface by making it it rough for bondage of mortar, which again further weakens the… Read More
Yes. there is usually an underlayment under vinyl, so it sometimes gives you a height issue.
Yes, but it would have to be floating engineered wood.
yes just prep your your tile with ardex
Can ceramic tile be installed over quarter inch concrete backer board rather than half inch if the underlayment is a three quarter inch 7 layer flooring grade plywood?
Yes it can. That seems a very satisfactory way to do it.
If the concrete is indoors, dry, and in good shape, yes.
That would depend on whether they are ceramic tiles or more vinyl tiles.
This is not a good idea just because of the difference in threshold height you will end up with. If you are using an adhesive backed flooring it wont stick Ceramic floors are notoriously uneven and this will cause squeaks and unsightly bulges and such.
It is possible, but it's not the best practice. If you can easily remove the existing vinyl, then do so. If the vinyl won't peel up, then you should consider two possibilities: Remove the vinyl along with the wood underlayment (or scrape it off if your subfloor is concrete), or install new wood underlayment on top of the existing vinyl. A third possibility is this: If the existing vinyl is securely glued to the floor… Read More
If you are you are referring to tongue and groove flooring such as Pergo then the answer is yes. You may however want to first lay lu-on (not sure of spelling but it is a thin sheet of wood) to insure that the floor is level.
You can buy mortar that works on old vinyl floors. But I wouldn't recommend it. Assuming that you are going over OLD vinyl floor, you also have to assume that the glue holding the vinyl floor down is OLD and probably failing. Keeping that in mind, if you go directly over the vinyl floor, you are basically asking the OLD, possibly failing glue to hold down not only the vinyl it was originally holding in… Read More
Not a good idea, the old pattern will show through and the finish on the old flooring will try to let go of the adhesive over time.,
Answer from Choices (http://www.choicesflooring.com.au/vinyl/) Generally, cushion vinyl is laid loosely so any imperfections in the floor don't show through over time. It can also be glued down, but the flooring needs to be completely level. Vinyl tiles or planks are glued down so the surface needs to be completely level, which is done by applying a self- leveler to the floor if required.
I would think that if you installed vertical wood strips to the stucco you could then install vinyl siding.
Put hardibacker over the wood and lay the tile on the hardibacker. Make sure the wood is firm and level.
Yes, if the flooring is level, uncracked, and has no loose pieces. You will need to strip the surface of the slate to ensure no residue remains that would not allow the mortar to bond.
No! Bad idea! Laminate is a floating floor that has to dissipate any moisture that comes up through it. If you put vinyl flooring over it, the laminate can't "breath" and it will respond to the humidity by swelling up and buckling.
NEVER, The heat will break down the finishes over time. The same is true with vinyl flooring, hardwood, laminate, LVT and grouting. Steam is meant for carpet only!
If you're talking about typical laminate underlayment, which is thin foam padding that is attached to a thin sheet of plastic, then it should just be attached with a light adhesive strip on one side of the underlayment sheets. It could easily be removed by simply pulling it from the floor. If you are talking about something else, then it would really depend on the type of vinyl you are using. If it is a… Read More
Can laminate flooring be installed over existing laminate flooring without a plastic or felt barrier?
You can, but you will probably have squeeks after you are done from the two floors rubbing against each other.
Yes but the finish is pretty poor. The laminate will need to expand and contract. This happens at a significantly different rate to vinyl. - Its always better to get the laminate up and ply or use self leveler and lay the vinyl as new.
Normally, installing new vinyl directly over old vinyl is not recommended because most manufacturers will not honor the warranty. Any bumps or dips in the surface can translate through your new vinyl. Dye or stains from the old vinyl can also seep into the new vinyl. But you can remedy this by applying an embossing leveler over the old vinyl, and then sealing it with an acrylic sealer. Then trowel your glue onto the sealed… Read More
This depends, most of the time, no. If you would like to put solid 3/4" nail down wood, no. If this is vinyl, even though the nails would go through the floor, it would not allow the floor to expand and contract with the seasons. Besides voiding your warranty you take a big risk the flooring will fail completely. Ceramic tile, goes without saying, you cannot nail into it. There are some types of glue… Read More
This will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, the general answer is yes if the flooring has no give and the height will not pose and issue at doorways. This is not true for vinyl or linoleum. You can only go 2 layers thick there.
Don't do it! Laminate should be a floating floor -- not nailed or glued down. Just pick it up!
The best way to repair particle board sub-flooring is to cut out the bad spot and replace with new board. You can only use vinyl and self stick tile over particle board. Ceramic tile cannot because the moisture in the thin-sets will break down the particle board.
Yes. The vinyl has to be specially cleaned and treated in order for the adhesive to stick. Special products and instructions are available at most home improvement stores.
Yes. Assuming that it is a floating floor (ie:Pergo), you can install it over any solid surface. You could also install a glue down laminate as long as you used the appropriate sized glue trowel.
If it has a timber floor under and vinyl is solid to the floor and not to thick screw down 10 mm ply at 150mm centres. seal ply with pva sealer prior too tilling. If it is a concrete floor it is best to lift vinyl.
Yes. And dead bodies too. It keeps the smell totally sealed off.
You can do this if your current tile floor is stable. Go around to each tile and knock on it, if it sounds solid, it's stable, if it sounds hollow, it's not. Even if everything is stable, I still wouldn't recommend installing over old ceramic floors. The main reason is that it's going to make that area of flooring really high. This will be especially noticeable if it butts up against other flooring types such… Read More
Ceramic tile can be installed over any non-compressible solid, non-flexible surface, but in areas of high moisture or possible water penetration, a cementious or water impermeable backer should be used to prevent rot.
No. Generally wood flooring needs to be nailed down. You may be able to get away with installing a floating laminate floor over the tile, but I would check with the maker of the laminate floor for it's installation recommendations. Obviously a flat surface would be ideal. Yes but not directly. You will have to include a self leveling underlayment. Engineered wood can be installed over a self leveling underlayment with adhesive.
every manufacturer would tell you NO will void every warrentee ! is your new Lino full glued or the newer floating type Lino/vinyl ?
