Can you install wood over vinyl tiles?
yes you van
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
Yes, but it would have to be floating engineered wood.
I would think that if you installed vertical wood strips to the stucco you could then install vinyl siding.
You can possibly use adhesive vinyl strips with wood texture on top of old mosaic floor tiles. However, this will cause the new floor to be uneven. You need to remove the old floor tiles before laying new ones.
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
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
only if its solid wood under and a well stuck down single layer if there is any movement ie cracks in the vinyl the wood floor is not stable and a 1/2 ply should be laid down first then rosin or felt paper
You can lay tiles again but make sure you buy proper mortar. You can install any kind of floating floor such as laminate, engineering wood, interlocking vinyl tile. Your main concern should be structural integrity of existing floor, if its not falling you can do pretty much anything
Yes, but I wouldn't recommend it. You will regret it later. Tile needs a cement base to adhere to. A wooden base is not good for ceramic tiles. I have seen tile floors where people have tiled over the wood. The tiles are loose, cracked and unlevel. The grout is coming out and water seeps through the floor.
You can but it wouldn't be to easy. My dad does construction and remodeling and if you do this you would have to use a strong adhesive because it could pop loose because of the tile. It would just be easier to remove the tile yourslef and then install the wood flooring.
Ceramic tiles are normally laid on a cement base. If the floor has any flexibility at all, the tiles will wind up cracking. But if you do have to install tiles on top of wood, then yes, the wood has to be sealed because the grout is mixed with water, which can damage unsealed wood.
Can laminate flooring be installed in a camping trailor which is not temperature controlled year round?
You can install laminate flooring but I would not recommend it. I would suggest carpeting or a vinyl floor. There are products available such as luxury vinyl tiles that come in wood designs that can be glued directly to the floor. The thing you have to remember is when it is not climate controlled moisture plays critical part in the stability of the floor.
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
they are new vinyl strips with wood textured surface and adhesive backing for easy installation. please advice if it is applicable to the mosaic floors and will not bubble up due to moist underneath when the room temperature is low.
You would be wise to put fibrous cement sheeting on the walls first to give you a more reliable and uniform surface for fastening the tiles. tiles directly on to wood is risky to say the least.
You install vinyl moulding by unrolling it and cutting to size,then sticking on with contact cement. You install wood moulding by cutting accurately to size then using a small air nailer to secure it.
yes - of course
No, wood glues are not suitable for vinyl.
Floating Installation This method the floor floats over foam cushioned padding.
Not just wood as you can glue it down to a whiteset/whitecast.
Yes. And dead bodies too. It keeps the smell totally sealed off.
Wood grain vinyl adhesive backed sheet is sold as shelf covering. You could try this? /Brian W
What is the shortest length of wood and tiles that you can lay if you have 15 inch pieces of wood and 12 inch pieces of tile?
It depends on how many tiles of each length that you have.
Vinyl windows have a vinyl covering so that will be no need for painting or worry about rotting wood. Vinyl windows are often double pane gas filled to give better insulation.
On certain surfaces you can - plastics, other vinyls and similar. NOT on wood surfaces. Make sure you clean and de-grease the surface very carefully before attaching the wood look vinyl
yes, but it will slide over the years so I would not
no and it would probably be a bad idea as it is likely to move around. Vinyl is cushioned anyway so there would be no point. Underlay is put under carpet to stop the carpet being crushed. Vinyl will restore after being walked on. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Answer 2: Underlayment is used on vinyl when installed over a wood substrate. Vinyl will take the shape of the floor below requiring a smooth surface for installation. Without this… Read More
If it sits over a cement floor, then no. If it is a nailed down floor, then you can, but you still have to install a cement board.
Most ceramic tiles are laid over a wooden subfloor, except for those on the ground floor of a house with a slab foundation. I will add to the answer above by saying that you will need to use a polymer-modified thinset morter when installing ceramic tiles over wood. Most tile-setting morters available today are "modified", but check to be sure, because regular morters are designed to be used over concrete and will not adhere properly… Read More
wood - Vermont Maple
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.
The Milton Bradley company used Vermont Maple for the Scrabble tiles.
Depends on whether you are likely gonna want to remove the tiles and use the wood in the future. If not then pour down cement, float it off using a level so it's flush. If it's a slow acting cement you can go ahead and lay your tiles into it, then grout. Otherwise let dry then use grout to bind to floor. Now if you want to preserve the wood or to add a shock… Read More
You couldn't tile directly over a plywood sub-floor because over time, the wood will be expanding. There are products you can use in between the plywood and tiles to keep them in place such as cement backer board.
I have seen a few places. The best one is Custom Order Online. at customorderonline.com. But remember, they only sell the windows not install them. You have to find some one to install it. They have a lot of different kids of windows, wood vinyl and aluminum. I have found a lot of useful information like how to measure, how to install brochure etc on their site. Good Luck
use wood putty. form it to the shape of the corner and then sand it down. stain it to the color of the vinyl wood grain cover that they put over it or get a new one.
Scrabble tiles are made by cutting them from light wood or from plastic. The tiles are divided into sections that are 19 mm by 19 mm in size. They are stamped with letters and numbers.
I install tile in the Opelika, AL area, and I wouldn't recommend it but if the door is flat and smooth (but rough enough for mastic to bond to it) then it is logically possible. I would recommend getting a high grade mastic made for bonding to wood, and go to laying. I would recommend taking the door off to do this; much easier and tiles wont slide down the door. This is a creative… Read More
Wood is fine for your SUB-floor, but not as the substrate to which you intend to attach the tile. You still need to install a crack isolation membrane or tile backerboard on top of the wood subflooring. It's because wood has too much 'give' and will cause your tiles to track and possibly pop loose. Grout lines will crack and eventually chip out. I followed instructions exactly for installing tile to my plywood subfloor… Read More
what can you use to seal acrylic paint that has been painted onto vinyl which is applied to wood. This will be used outdoors? Thanks..
Ceramic & Vinyl are the ideal floors for using the Shark steamer. NEVER on wood and probably not on Laminate.
Usually, but when the installers place the pad down, often they used staples. Also, in time the pad wants to stick to the wood.
Spray contact cement.
There are a number of excellent brands to choose from, and a lot depends on what you are looking for specifically in a window.In my opinion Fiberglass windows are the best brand for the replacement windows. The most common and popular type of windows found in homes all over America are vinyl replacement windows. Vinyl is preferred over wood, fiberglass, and other materials because it's highly durable and relatively easy on maintenance. A good brand… Read More
Of course. Just like wood, metal or any other window. Normally the hardware for any shade isn't attached to the window, but the wall or sconce anyway. (The last several years, vinyl windows are the most popular ones by far. Used in lots of new homes as well as remodels. You seeing many people living without shades?)
Wood, stone, mud, bricks, tiles, thatch.
It depends on several factors not listed. Im going to assume you have wood floors with vinyl that was installed over the top of the wood? And im going to assume that you removed the vinyl and found wood floors but have vinyl glue spread all over. Ok.. here are my thoughts and possible solutions. First off is this is going to take alot of work most likely. So be prepared. 2nd, there are several… Read More
Absolutely, but you have to be aware that it will raise your floor level and you might have a problem with door jambs and levels of flooring from one from room to another.
l holes can be filled with silicone. Larger holes will have to be filled with wood.
