Can you install Linoleum over an old vinyl floor? - My floor is 30 years old, red brick vinyl. Can I install the linoleum over it? Is it the best product for someone with allergies vs buying vinyl? Thanks. Susan

While it is possible to install linoleum over vinyl, chances are, it won't be practical. Linoleum MUST be installed on a surface that is FLAT, FLAT, FLAT. So if that brick pattern has any embossing (raised pattern) of any kind, it will telegraph (show through) perfectly on the new linoleum. It is generally recommended to pull up the old and add a new sub-floor layer, or at least a new underlayment, which can be thinner than a sub-floor.
I hope this helps!

Absolutely I am having the old vinyl removed and discarded. Thank you for the input; I appreciate it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Paul Anater added this to The Case for Linoleum and Vinyl Floors
Both brands make linoleum with the same ingredients Frederick Walton used. Namely, linseed oil, powdered cork, powdered wood, limestone, jute and pine rosin. The raw materials used to manufacture it are rapidly renewable, so linoleum is catching on as a sustainable flooring option. Some varieties of linoleum contain recycled material, And not only is it recyclable, given the right conditions and enough time, it's biodegradable.Linoleum is sold in sheets and tiles in a wide variety of colors. Linoleum has to be installed by a professional installer. Almost all applications of this product require sometimes-extensive seams. Its performance over the long term is dependent on the substrate over which it's installed.

The Case for Linoleum and Vinyl Floors Have pets, kids and a tight budget? Easy-care resilient floors may be the choice for you Follow Paul Anater I'm a former designer turned PR guy. More » Comment 79 Bookmark 223 Like 3 Email Embed Click "Embed" to display an article on your own website or blog. So far in this flooring series, I've discussed a variety of ceramic tile, plank wood, engineered wood and laminate floors. Rounding out but by no means completing this series are linoleum and vinyl — also called resilient flooring, or sheet goods. Resilient flooring's a better term because not all resilient floors come as sheets. What they have in common, however, is an ironlike durability and the promise of easy maintenance. While no flooring material is perfect, resilient floors have been a popular choice since the middle of the 19th century, though that popularity waxes and wanes with the times. These days, resilient flooring is enjoying a resurgence. According to the great people at Floor Covering News, it's currently the only flooring category enjoying a growing market share. Resilient flooring products remain popular, though they may not carry the cachet they once did. For a lot of people, these floors' easy-to-live-with nature makes them the logical choice for house full of kids and or pets. That they can cost significantly less money than the alternatives adds to their popularity. If you're in the market for a resilient floor, be sure to do your research, find a reputable retailer and ask lots of questions. How long one of these floors will last and wear plays a direct role in how much you'll pay for it. More flooring guides eclectic floors by Paul Anater Add to ideabook by Paul Anater Marmoleum Linoleum Flooring by Forbo - $5 » In 1863, Englishman Frederick Walton was granted a patent for a new flooring material he called Linoleum. It grew in popularity throughout the 1800s, and as Walton brought his product across the Atlantic, a number of imitators followed him. Walton never trademarked the name of his product, and linoleum became a generic term. There are two primary brands of linoleum sold today: Marmoleum by Forbo and Marmorette by Armstrong. Both materials come as tiles or sheets but are most commonly seen as sheets. tropical floors by Paul Anater Add to ideabook by Paul Anater Linorette brand linoleum flooring from Armstrong - $5 » Both brands make linoleum with the same ingredients Frederick Walton used.
