Tom Kraeutler asks,
I am disabled, and we just bought a house and property in Missouri. I am trying with the help of my son and father-in-law to finish the basement. Is it practical to cover the existing floor tiles on the basement floor, rather than try and remove them? I took other tiles and cut them to size and glued them in. I was thinking of painting them. What do you think?
If you install laminate flooring over tile in a basement, do you need a moisture barrier? If so, what do you recommend? We have a large basement area that is partially tiled and partially carpeted. We want to install laminate in both areas. Any ideas on how to level up the floor where the bare concrete floor (where carpet & pad are removed) and the tile meet?
