Wooden flooring over vinyl??

Hi,

 

I have a fairly new house with vinyl flooring through out the main living areas.

It is time to replace this with wooden flooring...Should I lift the vinyl or can I use this as the underlay?


Thanks Robert

Re: Wooden flooring over vinyl??

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community Robert (@RHowell). It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.

 

What type of vinyl flooring is already there, and what type of timber flooring do you intend to lay? This additional information would be very helpful in our members providing some excellent advice. The terms vinyl flooring and timber flooring can refer to several different products these days.

 

We look forward to hearing more about your project and offering a solution.

Hi Robert (@RHowell

 

Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. We are looking forward to reading more about this project and many others you have planned for around the house and garden. 

 

In addition to Mitchell's reply, I thought I would also encourage you to share a photo or two of your flooring so that members can see what you are working with and be in a better position to suggest suitable alternatives. 

 

Please let us know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the Workshop site. We're here to help.

 

Thanks again,

 

Jason
