Pergo installedon top of pergo


Good day gents

I have a basement with pego on top of a vapor barrier foam underlyment
Can I put a new pergo floor on top of the original
I'm aware that this means cut in in doorways

Thx!

Why would you want to do that?
Makes a lot more since to just remove the old first.

Removing the old does make sense but there is a catch
Since its install there were a few dividing walls added and they were framed on top of the floor
I can cut along the floor to free them which I'm good to do but I need a good tool option for this
Since it is parallel to the wall a tangent cut is best, but all I have is a roto-zip
Any suggestions?
Thx sk

You are not supposed to put any structure on these floors. You don't put kitchen cabinets on them, much less a wall.
You can do the correct installation or you can continue on the road to, "questionable building practices".

I use a Toe Kick Saw to cut floors out that are run under walls.
I agree, huge no no to install a wall on top of laminate.

Thx I bought the house after the floor and walls were in, it is just obvious that one came before the other.
I noticed this after i started to review the job.

Thx

One of the cheap ones from Harbor Freight should handle this with ease. A Roto-Zip is the completely wring tool to use.

i have a harbor freight toe kick saw, it works well. but beware, if you are cutting flooring that is on top of concrete = letting the blade touch the concrete will dull the blade real quick.

also, be VERY CAREFUL , this saw has some kick to it and can turn very dangerous real quick. i would say this saw is more dangerous than a chain saw.
