Here are the two problem installs I am running into that I need your adivce with.
1. Pergo - installer said that since we do not have any ventilation underneath the kitchen floor that they cannot gurantee that the Pergo will stay in place. They suggested that they open up a window underneath the room in order to circulate air and then they would suggest laying Pergo down.
2. Ceramic - it was suggested that the current peel and press tile be lifted, that the wood floor underneath be picked up so that they can lay down the cement then lay down the ceramic tile. I was told that the cement that they put down first is approximately 3/4 inch thick and then the ceramic tile can be put in place. I currently have a marble saddle separating the kitchen and dining room. By doing it the above way I would need to have the saddle custom in order to be above the ceramic tile. (most expensive method)
Another method was to lay the ceramic tile down over the current tile floor (cheapest method)
A third and final method suggested was to lift the peel and press and just lay the ceramic tile on top of the wooden floor. (mid-priced method)
The installers were provided by Home Depot - where I bought the tile.
Your suggestions and comments on this would be appreciated.
