VINYL over VINYL, question?
In our kitchen we have vinyl (sheeting). Our vinyl is about 13 years old. Under the vinyl is a "new" subfloor, also 13 years old. Under the sub- is our "old" vinyl. Under that is our original subfloor (house was built in 1986. We are remodeling our kitchen. Our old cabinets are gone, and our new cabinets are in place. We made a few changes in our cabinets, so in a few spots, each about ~1' square, there is only the original subfloor. The rest include all levels mentioned. We plan to put new vinyl over our #2 vinyl. The flooring people said there is a procedure where they remove any loose vinyl, then fill in all empty spaces with a type of adhesive that fills in the gap and makes the floor level. What is that procedure called, and how can I find more about it? Secondly, what will a flooring company do in the spaces where we never had the second subfloor (the few squares ~1' square)? Will they actually fill in those squares in wood first, then fill in the rest with the level material? Or will they just use the level material? Hope this question makes sense. We'd like to know about it before we make up our minds. Please answer ASAP, as we need to make this decision in a several days. Thank you!
