vinyl plank flooring


Has anyone had any experience laying vinyl plank flooring over 12 x 12 ceramic floor tile. Will the grout lines eventually show thru?

There has to be at least 1000 old post on this subject.
Tried the search option yet under flooring?
Yes all the grout lines are going to show through.
What's wrong with the old tile?
How's adding another layer of flooring without removing the old flooring going to effect meeting up with the other floors?

You do not want to do that. At the very least the ceramic tile must be scuffed and the grout lines filled. Otherwise the joints in the vinyl plank flooring will quickly separate and the floor will wreck itself. And even then if the floor isn't plane the vinyl will still fail.
