Cork Tile Installation


I want to lay cork tiles in my apartment which is presently covered in a very well stuck down vinyl floor.. Is there anything I can do to prep the vinyl floor and then tile over it- have heard suggestions of latex film/primer- or do I just have to persevere and remove the vinyl? Also, the glue down cork tiles are my only option- floating cork floor tiles aren't available. Thank you, all help appreciated.

Cork Tile Installation


if the manufacturer recommends install over sheet goods then you need an embossing leveler.
any floor store stocks.

or install 1/4 ply, then the cork
