Laminate+stick on tiles+linoleum Good Idea??


Hi

We just had Laminate installed in the family room/dinning room that we had for about 2 years.

We found a place that still carry's it

We want to continue the Laminate into the Kitchen so everything flows

On the floor right now is Linoleum and then stick on Tiles

Can we just roll out are under-padding and then start the laminate install

We also plan on installing new Cabinets,does the Laminate go under the cabinets.

Or can we start the project for the floor before buying new cabinets

thanks

Laminate can go over good solid vinyl or lino. But don't put it under the cabinets. You are talking floating, right?

you can install over a sound surface(vinyl or stick-on), but DO NOT install under cabinets... floating floor needs to move as it reacts to changes in moisture and temperature.

How is the Different from having a couch or table over the floor if it still moves.

Maybe I don't understand enough,but there's know difference from having base cabinets to a couch on the floor to me,if they just sit there.

If the gap is all the way around so it can still move

I thought those home shows talk about laying ceramic tile and hardwood under everything

Laminate+stick on tiles+linoleum Good Idea??


I was doing a small"ish" job friday : Laminate floors from Simple Floors installed in a foyer that flows into the kitchen and breakfast.. the foyer previously had engineered floors glued-down to plywood. after removing that, i installed a 1/4" plywood to level the foyer with the other areas, which were 1/4" higher and had vinyl installed. At first i wanted to go over the vinyl with the laminate, but when removing the molding the vinyl came up around the edges. So i decided to rip it up. to my biiiiig surprise, the 1/4" existing plywood was all wet(probably condensation under the vinyl) and the entire area had mold forming in between the vinyl and ply. So now i've put the project on hold and am having a company do mold treatment.
the point of this? I want to retract the previous comment and strongly suggest rippin out the existing linoleum and stick-ons.... if you the find there's a diference in level, you can install a new layer on thin ply to make up for that....
