hardwood t&g flooring installation over vinyl

Posted by Bill Derby on January 4th, 1998 07:43 AM

I intend to install about 650 sq ft of 3.5 inch t&g old
growth southern yellow pine flooring over an existing,
albeit in very good condition, vinyl sheetgood floor in
the kitchen. The flooring is newly cut from salvaged
framing material available when the old Segrams Distillery
in Baltimore was demolished. The wood is hard and very

Any recommendations in laying the floor would be appreciated.
I intend to lay the floor using flooring nails directly
over the existing vinyl without the use of rosin paper. Is
this OK. I will finish sand the floor and coat with multi
layers of water based polyurethane varnish. Are there any
books available and recommended on this subject.

Thanks for any assistance and recommendations.
