There are certain flooring products that can be installed over existing floors, including tile, concrete, and plywood. This is often done for a temporary application, or, in a situation where an existing floor cannot be removed. It’s also a great way to update the look of a room quickly and easily. So, you may be asking yourself if ever-popular laminate flooring solutions can be installed over existing floors?

If the existing tile, concrete, or plywood floor are in relatively good condition, laminate flooring should work over it. As long as the floor is flat and level, you would install laminate over an existing floor just as you would over a traditional subfloor.

  1. TileFlex Floor Tile
  2. Vinyl Peel & Stick Gym Floor Hardwood
