  1. I am planning on painting over the tiles in my bedroom, should I use a garage floor paint, then seal it.
    Also, I am planning on replacing the laminate flooring in the kitchen with
    self sticking tiles. I already know about floor preps, (sanding, etc.), any helpful hints to make this process go easier? Thank you for your expertise and TV programs.

  2. Hi, I’m looking for flooring for a kitchen floor that has vinyl over cement,very cold in winter. Would a floating floor work better?

    • Hi, Delores!
      A floating floor with an underlayment should offer more insulation, but be sure that it is rated for use in a kitchen.
      Good luck with your project!

  3. I’m looking to remodel my kitchen by doing the floors, with new appliances also changing the color of my kitchen cabinets, My house were builded back in 1940. looking for ideals.
