    Installing laminate over vinyl

    Flooring Specialists

    Can I lay laminate flooring (with underlay) over glued down vinyl sheet flooring? Do I need to use a vapour barrier if I lay the laminate over the vinyl sheet?

    "Yes you can install laminate flooring over vinyl flooring
    if you are installing on a moisture-prone subfloor or concrete subfloor, you really need a moisture barrier underlayment."

    "If you wanted to lay over the vinyl then I wouldn't put underlay down in my opinion but everyone has their own I suppose. I just think it could cause dampness if and when it would get hot."
