1000 sq-feet of 30 y.o tiled office space in North Florida
I am reasonably handy (changed the steering tie-rods in the car 6 months ago) and interested in determining if it makes sense to self install
We are evaluating replacing the flooring with artificial wood laminate, carpeting, or tiling for future renters.
- How to evaluate to what degree is the current tile cleanable / reusable?
- Is it necessary to remove the tile in order to install carpeting or artificial wood laminate? If yes, why?
- If unnecessary to remove tile to install laminate, how should the tile be prepped (beyond normal cleaning)?
If you have experience with this decision making, please state this in your response. Insightful experience: lessons-learned or pitfalls to avoid are appreciated. Thank you
