Vinyl Flooring Over Concrete

In reply to Applying a vinyl floor by Mark Freudenberg on September 23rd, 1997 03:27 PM [Go to top of thread]

The easiest way is to use an "embossing leveler" sometimes called "trowelable underlayment"
available from your local home improvment center or floor covering supplier.(I prefer portland based products).
Armstrong makes an excellent trowelable underlay available at Menards as well as many other places.
This is the best way if your existing floor is in reasonable good shape,( not loose or curling ect.) If the existing floor is not in good enough shape to go over you really need to scrape out the old vinyl (provided it contains no asbestos).
You can nail down underlayment but it's not esp. easy over concrete.
Just remember that the key to a good vinyl installation is a very smooth and stable surface to go over.
Feel free to email me if you need further help....
