Question

Peel & Stick over Laminate/Tile?


Hey guys,

I'm on a budget and want to lay some of that Armstrong Sticky back vinyl flooring (Groutable).

My questions are :

Can I go right over top of my existing floors?

Hallway = Laminate (Good condition - bad color)
Entry way = Linoleum (Ugly but good condition)
Kitchen = Existing Peel and Stick Tile (Not lifting)

Obviously, I'm going to need to prep the existing floors to make sure they are smooth and primed but is this an option with this groutable vinyl tile?

Any comments or advise is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

It might be all right over the old lino and peel and stick, but I don't think I would put it over laminate.

You're putting peel and stick over stuff to hide it.....
It's lazy...........
It's cheap...........
It's not the right way to do things.........

Please don't ask if that's okay or if there are any issues.............

All bad options. Save more $$ until you have a realistic amount to work with.
