just bough a house. I need a new kitchen floor. there is carpet glued down on it now I do not know what is under the carpet. wood sub floor i think. Question- what sheet vinyl would be best.
In laws had glued down kitchen carpet from the 70's. (REALLY BAD IDEA)
Nephew removed it and scraped & cleaned most all the glue off the floor (old linoleum under). The old rubber backing had partially disintegrated and was a loose powder. This removal saved some time and money from the install.
Then we had a flooring store pro come in and replace the flooring with a commercial quality sheet vinyl. Lifetime guarantee on residential/25 on commercial. No wax, not glossy, comes in LOTs of colors and overall patterns of stone, wood, blends of colors. Has a bit of give, but will not dent or cut if you move something heavy across it.
We had the same type of flooring installed in a bathroom, and it is great. Very heavy, overall patterns with no straight line tile grids. Because it is a heavy, long lasting floor, we had it installed, and not a DIY.
You do need to look for and shop for it at a "flooring store", as the Home Depot types will only have the light weight stuff that might last a few years at most.
thanks it is good to know the glue down is removable dyi. I will tackle it this weekend
