Good video! I wanted to install LVT in my bathroom but was told all my porcelain tile would need to be removed to install the new LVT. Because of the wide (1/4 inch wide grout lines) otherwise, the LVT would eventually sag where the grout lines are. Please let me know your thoughts.

Home Depots like "Just score the planks and snap them", they said nothing about using saws...which actually seem necessary. I can do it, but it's definitely not as easy as the people at the store act.

It's hard to remove linoleum, especially the adhesive underneath it. It's not thick, so why not just leave it? I do think an underlayment membrane might have been appropriate in this case.

I put this through my house. I have installed many types of flooring from hardwood, to tile. This vinyl plank flooring goes in easy, looks great, a year later it is absolute garbage. High traffic areas will separate and the corners will curl up. Worst decision I have ever made. It does conform to uneven spots but a grain of sand will leave a nice bump in the floor. I DO NOT RECOMMEND using this flooring at all costs.

question: i notice this is your laundry room so was your original tiled floor slightly sloping towards the floor drain or perfectly level?...i ask because i'm wondering because i assume your floor would be sloped and how the vinyl would perform on a slightly sloped base.

I love this guy, but the previous owner in our home installed the same type of floor on top of the old linoleum with no felt layer in between them- just like this video, and it sounds like your walking on something crunchy every time. IMO, you need a liner or felt layer in between them.

I believe a lot of this flooring comes with an underlayment already attached, so you don't always need to roll out a separate layer.
