vinyl over vinyl flooring


My house was built in 1995. Lowes told me they have a policy against removing vinyl flooring. If i did new vinyl on top of the current, how much will the floor height increase? will it be enough for me to worry about the DW being locked in?

Thanks

You need 1/4" plywood underlayment and then the thickness of the vinyl. Don't know why they won't take up the old, most stores will. 1995 vinyl should not have asbestos.

Thanks. Do i need the underlayment even if they are putting on top the current vinyl? The store said something about putting some glue.

The pattern from the bottom vinyl will telegraph thru the top one.
