Q: I am installing a hard wood floor in our kitchen. We currently have a linoleum floor in the kitchen. Can I put the hardwood floor down right on top of that or do I have to rip up and remove the current kitchen floor?

A: You should be fine going over linoleum, provided there is no difficulty with the nails penetrating. Some older products were very hard, but this likely won’t be an issue for you. If this is a cushion type floor, I would not be comfortable with that. Provided the sub floor underneath is able to hold nails, you should be fine to proceed.
