How do I install luxury vinyl tile over old residue from self-stick?
I have purchased "click" luxury vinyl tile strips (5" wide, etc) to re-cover a 10x12 family room. The previous owner put down "self-STICK" vinyl on top of 9x9 asbestos tile. (NO hazardous waste crew lectures PLEASE. Keep the Fed out of it, as I am NOT disturbing it in ANY way.) Given I am leaving the 9x9's and want to cover it with the good stuff, it is now like FLYPAPER...with the old residue so sticky I can barely move my work boots. I don't want to use petro-chemicals. I have considered heavy builder board rolled paper as a substrate, rather than raising the floor height with backer board. Thoughts and ideas on my dilemma? Thanks a trillion, Joe.
