squeeky lanoleum floor


The floor under our lanoeum squeeks. My husband wants to screw it down and then fill in the patches. Is there a better idea?

you could throw down some screws, countersink them in there, then throw down embossing leveler and then new Vinyl.

Are you referring to small button sized pieces of vinyl to cover just the screw head? Has anyone done this? Will it look good? Or will it look patched? The current floor looks great, just squeaks

Is the ceiling below open or is it finished?

The wizard was telling you it's time for a new floor. Removing squeaks should be part of installing a new floor, how old is it and was a new 1/4" underlayment installed at that time?

Under the floor is the crawl space under the house which we just spent 4 days crawling under insulating. Don't want to take it down. We just bought the house so don't have details about the floor.
