How to Install Vinyl or Laminate Flooring Over Existing Ceramic Tile
In this video we show you how to install vinyl flooring over existing ceramic tile in a home entrance and bathroom. For this project, the goal was to reuse the existing trim so that it would match seamlessly with the rest of the house. Laying vinyl or laminate flooring over existing tile is a great way to upgrade a floor space without getting into messy demolition work.
The video describes all of the tools needed for the installation and the specialized multi-angle ruler used for the complex cut at the bathroom and closet can be found on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/3rEd5jx
Tips & Tricks:
- Create "tapping blocks" out of a piece of flooring to use with your mallet so you don't damage the surface or edges of your new floor
- Investing in a "pull bar" can save time and help with tricky sections during installation.
- For installations over existing ceramic tile, make sure your tile is in good condition. Broken, loose or damaged tiles will not make a good foundation for the new floor.
- Leave a small gap between your new flooring and the wall to allow for expansion. This gap should be small enough to be covered by the trim.
- Make sure your work area is as clean as possible before you start laying floor.
