Re: vinyl floor planks

Hi @chrisway,

 

As long as the tiles are in good condition, flat, and there are no hollow or drummy tiles, then you can lay hybrid vinyl flooring directly over them. They are 100% waterproof and ideal for use in bathrooms and laundries. If you are not sure if your tiles are in good enough condition, you might like to share some images with us so we can provide feedback.

 

I look forward to following along with your project and would encourage you to let us know if you have any questions.

 

Mitchell

Re: vinyl floor planks

Thanks, I want to use the stick on vinyl planks so I’ll need to level the floor I guess.

Re: vinyl floor planks

It would be worth considering if the additional cost of priming, self-levelling, priming again, and the stick-on product itself would come close to using hybrid vinyl, @chrisway. Here's the installation guide for the stick-on vinyl, which takes you through the process to level tiles.

Re: vinyl floor planks

Yes thank you I have used the stick on many times but thought I’d like to do the bathrooms. Here is a pic of my floor I’ve just finished. Over Masonite.
