It's OK to install waterproof laminate flooring over tile, but that's just the quick answer. Today, we're going to talk about why what to look out for and facts that will make the process go as smoothly as possible.
Waterproof laminate flooring facts you should know
Waterproof laminate flooring can easily be installed over existing tile flooring as long as the tile is in good repair. Make sure there are no tiles that are cracked, loose, or imperfect, which could cause your laminate installation to fail, especially in areas that are highly traveled.
Another thing to keep in mind when installing these floors over an existing floor covering is that they will be taller than regularly installed flooring that goes over just a subfloor. In some spaces, this won’t be an issue, but if you are installing beneath doors, appliances, trim, or other situations, be sure to measure before you begin.
Even when installing these floors over an existing tile floor covering, be sure to include a moisture protection barrier or underlayment beneath the laminate. Tile is water-resistant all by itself, but even waterproof laminate does not protect from water that comes up from underneath.
The installation process itself is quick and easy. You’ll enjoy the opportunity to walk on your new floors as soon as they are finished, so visit us today for more information.
