Interior Vinyl Coverings
After discovering a leaking shower, wet everything, mold, having to gut the washroom including ceramic tile, I’m shy to go with tile on the floor again. If I have an encapsulated / conditioned crawl space, I should be okay with a floating vinyl floor option over the tongue and groove subfloor (no plywood)? Or will it trap moisture?
The walls and floor in this cottage (heated with gas fireplace and radiant heat) are not insulated. I was thinking of putting up a feature wall using “wood look” vinyl flooring. This is an exterior wall. Would that contribute to the air sealing of the wall, or be asking for trouble regarding trapped moisture between the existing drywall and the flooring on the wall? This product is a “click” floor with a thin cushioned foam backing on it.
Thanks so much,
