I am going to do kitchen in my new rent and it needs a floor. I am going to be putting 18×18” self stick tiles. The existing floor was tore up, which originally was carpet glues to a plywood sub-floor. Now the floor has the carpet backer pattern on it ( in the old glue). I am not confident that self stick tiles will adhere to a base like that.

My question is will regular VCT glue ( for non-self stick tiles) work with the sticky type tiles? I would like to go with the glue for added strength. I choose not to use commercial VCT grade for a kitchen. This is a rental place so I will not use ceramic.

Any ideas, I’d like to try it but I am worried about glue compatibility, this is something I want to do once, it needs to last at least 3 years.

Hmm, I never use those kinds of products, but generally if you scrape down the old glues, you’ll do ok. There’s an article


which talks some about installing VCT, but not specifically self sticking.

There were animals in this apt before so i think I am going to paint the floor. After thats all set I’ll install a new luan sub-floor. But my question still stands, Will vct glue stick to the self stick tiles, I am concerned with the chemical reaction preventing the stickyness.

That was a very helpful article and thanks for the good read.

If you have had animals in it then there were wet spots that soaked in and left an odor. I would get something like Activate Plus and spray the floor generously and then let it dry before painting it. This gets rid of the urine odor as well as anything I have used. This is bought in janitorial supply places. It is an enzyme that takes care of most odors.

I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before. asheville house painters
