vinyl tiles are real easy to get up. You probably would want to take them up, but I don’t know if it will matter. We had the ones that click, but I think when the put it in.. they used some sort of glue underneath and in the joints.

Home Depot always knows!

    If you’re talking about solid hardwood, you’re definitely going to have to take up the tiles. For any floor which you’re not going to float, attaching the flooring to a *stable* subfloor is paramount to your success. The best subfloor for hardwood is a wood subfloor. This will take the nails best to make sure that you’re solid hardwood flooring is as stable as it can be.

    Good luck with your project!
