Can you install this over ceramic tile?

Brian says:

Great video, thanks. How well do these hold up against larger dogs?

Allen Walker says:

That was a very useful video. I’m surprised at the quality and how it answered my questions about installation. Good job Lowe’s

john cena says:

no glue or nails between the floor and wood floor?

Peter Mazzuchin says:

Quite informative, Thank You. To make the flooring softer for sensitive feet, what type and how thick of a mold resistant, water retardant underpad is recommended on top of concrete base floor? Thank You

Ian Guiberson says:

both will expand and contract peel &stick is by far as bad investment if you want it to last more than a year

Riz P says:

I did my whole garage and it looks awesome.


My kitchen is not square at all. I have walls that go around a breakfast nook and Cabinets all around kitchen. How do I know to square the room since my room isn’t Square? Also can I install my Nook Benches over these planks or do I have to install these around Bench? Would really like to install these Floors, but if I cant place my Bench over them, it wont be a pretty install :o/   Thanks for your response and help :o)

Ricardo Landingin Jr says:

do you still need underlayment ?

maxboogie says:

I thought vinyl planks don’t expand or contract so is leaving an expansion gap really necessary?

ohtoseemusic says:

I’m installing this on concrete in a bathroom. Should I seal the edges to keep water from going underneath the flooring?

Loyalty 77 says:

I want this but need someone to install it for me….

Brian Freeh says:

I’m installing this in a bathroom. Do I scribe around the toilet or can I remove it and go under it?

Kyle Winland says:

i love how all of these videos say to cut the planks by scoring them to length with a razor knife but cutting them lengthwise so that you have the proper width is not described or even shown in any example…………scoring them for width with a razor sounds stressful and bound to fail. what are the suggestions on cutting the vinyl locking planks lengthwise so that you get a proper width???

Josue Aparicio says:

what’s exact model of plank vinyl?

BigD Hahn says:

There is one thing you fail to show the people trying to install this kind of product. How easy the tiles pop out of joint. These products in my opinion are junk. If you don’t have someone else to stand at the other end of the plank you just installed when installing the next piece the first one will on its own come apart. Making my point why most vinyl snap together is junk. Show the problems as well. and putting 2 pieces together isn’t how to install the floor. Show how to cut around corners or doorways that are already installed.

I really need your help to my question. my existing flooring has a curved end where it meets the wall, like a cove base. Can i still install vinyl flooring on it?

Tate Ellison says:

How about a floor that has a step down.

Skill Builder says:

Good video. The only thing is I would have run the planks the other way because the joists would normally go the short way across the room. The boards run counter to the joists. I know their aren’t any but it just makes the floor look more realistic if you follow the logical conventions of building.

Doxie Mom says:

Great video!

stop asking me to change my name! says:

Can this product be cut with a saw ? I know it can be scored for cutting to length but what about curves and cutting them length wise. I plan on using a jigsaw for curves and a table saw for ripping.

Sunny Raj says:

I was going to put laminate on my basement steps, But now choosing Vinyl. Do/should I use glue as well to put the vinyl on the steps? It’s going to be a high traffic area with boots, shoes, ect.
Any thoughts??

Samantha Campos says:

Can you install peel and stick over ceramic tiles? If so how would you prep that?

TONY says:

Don’t use peel n stick u will regret it. After a while the seams open up . A locking system is best

emilieclarke says:

That was so helpful! Thank-you!

Mark Owen says:

In a bathroom, would the flooring be installed before the vanity is installed? Or cut / trim around the vanity?

FoxyFeline says:

Does anything need to go underneath the planks if it’s going over existing tile or can it be placed directly over the tile?

Tom Jones says:

Can I use this as flooring on a pontoon boat?
