A third possibility is this: If the existing vinyl is securely glued to the floor… Read More

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
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

First off is this is going to take alot of work most likely. So be prepared. 2nd, there are several… Read More
I would not. The wood has to expand and contract with temp changes. Your floor will buckle if you do.
Maybe if the wood ever had polish or varnish on it, use a solvent - If raw wood, no way.
Provided it is a water based glue, wipe it with damp cloth.
Ammonia and water can be used to remove haze from a wood floor. Do not soak the floor, use a damp mop with this mixture to clean the floors and get rid of the haze.
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
Sorry, 'strong power glue' doesn't tell us enough, -Name your glue -
Glued down vinyl is put on an underlayment. Coming in sheets like plywood, this is put down first to give a smooth and level surface to glue to. All seams between the boards need to be filled with a compound and sanded level. Make sure that all nails or screws are in solid and the heads don't protrude. They can cut through the vinyl in a matter of days if not level or below the… Read More

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
Yes, you can glue wood with white or yellow glue.
Not necessarily the best but I find the hot melt glue guns to be indispensable. I have stuck almost anything together with them and even carpet to the bottom of timber and aluminium chairs which has not come away.

If it really is wax, you will not remove it as it will have slowly been absorbed deep into the wood.

Soak it in water for about an hour then it will peel off.
