Bvflooring
We just bought our first 2-bedroom condo in Boston. We like to replace the carpet in the bedrooms with engineering floor. The living room is covered with parquet floor which we don't like very much. Should we remove the parquet or lay the new floor on top of it? How hard is it to remove the old flooring? Would there be a big step-off from living room to bedroom (all the rooms are connected)if we lay new floor on top of the parquet? We are planning on doing it ourselves with glueless Harris Tarkett engineering floor (from Home Depot). Anyone has any experience with these type of floor? What's the best way to do it with limited budget and expererience? Please Help! Appreciate any input! Thanks!

first go to home depot have them open a box of the wood and get the install instructions out (or they could call the mgf.) find out if you can install over the existing floor (the instructions will say yes or no) once you know that then you can procede with the next step.

That's the beauty of floating floors. They can be installed over most any existing floor covering providing the old is secure to the subfloor. Carpet excluded.
