Hi all

I'm a fairly novice diy'er - but I've got loads of tools and stuff :lol:

Learning a lot from these forums and also the Youtube channel.

Anyway we need to update a house stuck very much in the seventies to make it more sale-able so I'm expecting to be a regular visitor here.

When we've lifted the kitchen carpet (!) we've found underlay and then what appears to be genuine lino very much glued to the floorboards. Is there any reason why we can't put laminte with undelay directly onto the lino or do we really need to get that stuff up?

Thanks.

Ian

is it the hard tile's? may be good to post a pic.

sometimes i see tiles that are glued reeeeealy well down onto timber floors id just lay lam over those obv with underlay like.

just dont go for it if the lino is soft or is only laid in parts and other parts is floorboards. then id be getting it up.

If you do lift, be careful it isn't asbestos flooring.

Thanks for your quick replies guys. Hadn't considered asbestos.

Fin - I'll try and get a photo but fairly sure it's laid like a fitted carpet, not tiles. Ha - just noticed a comment of yours about Hartlepool - my home town although this house is in Morpeth.
