Where can laminate flooring be installed?
One of the nice things about Armstrong Laminate Flooring is that you can
install it over virtually any existing floor - wood, and wood underlayment,
concrete, ceramic and resilient tile, vinyl sheet flooring, even carpet, if it's
fully adhered to a wood subfloor, and no more than 1/4" thick. That means
you don't have to pull up old floors and deal with the mess or the hassle of
repairing most subfloor damage. Just make sure your subfloor is structurally
sound, dry, clean and flat.
