I am renovating my kitchen and have decided to lay an engineered hardwood for my floor. My question is what is the best way to lay this floor? I have 2 layers of flooring one being linoleum and a vinyl tile I'm guessing is asbestos, both of which are stuck down quite well. Under this there is 3/4" T&G subfloor. I spoke with an installer at Lumber Liquidators and he said I won't be able to staple the new floor through the existing layers. His basic reasoning was that the staple will deflect off of the old floor and not be adhered. What other options do I have (other than floating laminate which I don't want to do)? Any help/tips/advice would be greatly appreciated!!
