Nice job

Samantha Soule says:

Thank you for all of the info! Do you have any recommendation for a plywood subfloor that is still slightly tacky in some areas after removing old peel and stick tile, and using a chemical adhesive remover?

I’ve read that the tiles can be hard to remove….(if you need to repair or replace someday)
seems like using a bond enhancer would make that problem even worse ?

I want to update my bathroom flooring cheap, easy and quick.  but it has uneven ceramic tile flooring.  Can I put the Premixed Patch and Level on top of the existing ceramic tile to level the floor and then put on the Peel and Stick Vinyl flooring?

Lyfetreker SH says:

I just installed peel and stick tiles a few days ago. I didn’t use any primer on the plywood. I made sure the floor was clean and dry, but some of the tiles are popping up a bit. Any ideas of how to make them stick better?

DrellyBee504 says:

Can you apply peel and stick tile to existing tile? I’m moving into a rented home soon with an outdated bathroom and I want to bring it into at least the late 20th century. LOL Would you recommend these steps for a renter?

David Bowers says:

Sounds like your working for Henry products. And arent you using luan for a sub floor so its clean and the tile will actualy stick with primer.

Thank You Very Much, your Video was very useful 🙂

Judi Lauer says:

I have a small bathroom that has linoleum on it. I want to replace it with Armstrong A6703 Luxe Plank, 12×24. The local dealer said I should use Ardex filler to fill the small imperfections, ie, grout lines, etc. The floor is very level though. Your saying that it wouldn’t be necessary? I really don’t want to take the time to mix and spread though. This is fairly thick flooring.

Lena Fleener says:

Thanks for the video it was very informational! We are getting ready to lay self stick tile with grout and I’m kind of freaking out over the process! Your video helped sooth my nerves as far as preparing the floor. The instructions on the tile say to use a 100 pound vinyl roller after the tile is in place is this necessary? Thanks!

debeyes says:

spotless clean is best pva seal as well

Rick Hebert says:

Thank for the video, it has help me out on the prep work. Now once the planks are down, is there anything I should do afterwards, like a protectant or sealant?
