    Vinyl flooring 10th Jul 18 at 10:04 PM
    Once vinyl flooring has been glued to wooden boards (that are nailed to a wooden floor), can the vinyl be removed without ruining It?

    It can be heated up and removed. It would possibly ruin the separate pieces. I'd be prepared to replace the pieces pulled up.

    If it has been down for a long time (10-15 years), it will be brittle and quite likely crack as soon as you try to lift it. Heating may help, and it will certainly soften any adhesive.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    Refit!

    The fitter has done something wrong with the under boarding to make the floor buckle upwards. He thinks the ply board was faulty.

    The whole lot apparently needs replacing but at their expense.

    I spent AGES moving all the new kitchen units out and the very heavy dining table has been unassembled, and temporarily placed round the house.

    So now I can't get on with fitting my kitchen (floor fitting was on critical path), have no dining table, have my living room taken over with kitchen units and am stuck like this for at least a week until, they can reorder the flooring and have it refitted.

    Just grrrrr annoying, as now my kitchen won't be finished for when I have guests staying.

    I was just hoping it was easily fixable.

    Why don't they just re-ply over the top of the existing floor, screwed through the vinyl and the buckled floor into the sub floor. that will pull the floor down. You will just need to put a small threshold in at the door.
