I have a Mannington Gold kitchen floor that was installed in 1992, over vynil tile.

It needs to be replaced, but I'm not sure as to the best route to take.

I might go Mannington sheet flooring again, or something like a Pergo floor.

If I go Pergo, I can just lay it on top of the old flooring, but I'm not too crazy about building up the floor more.

If I go with Manni9ngton sheet floor, I guess I would have to tear up the old flooring, as I'm not sure you can put another sheet floor on top on an existing floor?

So has anyone been in my situation, and what's the best approach?

Thank you,.....marc

How did you make out on the cabinets? I would have liked to see you do the floor first before putting in the cabinets. If not then now you have to cut the flooring with the potential to make mistakes pretty high. If you do the floor first then you just lay it past where the cabinet toe kick ends and then lay the cabinets right on top. If the cabinets are in first then you have to cut the linolium or flooring planks.

First off Pergo is the biggest piece of trash sold in home improvement stores. But the ads on TV says it's a good product. Yea right. Do you really want plastic fake wood on your floor? Some of the same people who come in my store demanding only all wood cabinets and no particle board are the same people who put down those fake plastic Pergo floors. In 30 years selling cabinets I still can not explain that one. Neither can my customers except to say the TV ads said it's ok.

If you have vinyl tile squares and they are in good shape you can go ahead and put down your vinyl sheet goods. Your Mannington is a very good product pretty simular to Armstrong. I like them both. Try to go with thicker mill and resist saving a few dollars for the thin vinyl.

If the existing floor is in poor condition I really hope you did not put your cabinets in because Im going to tell you to take up the old tile and lay a luan underlayment first. Glue and screw and fill the seams before laying the new vinyl.

Did you end up buying Kraftmaid?

Good luck

You should first rip off the old floor you have and install the Mannington floor you intend to by again. Pergo is not a good quality one. Mannington's best for vinyl flooring products.
