I've seen it done both ways. A Newbie might find peel-n-stick easier but Sam is always right ... the vinyl is a better product and tile is the best.

Just had to put down some peel-n-stick on a laundry room for a rental. Used a Henry's product as the primer, then laid the tiles in rapid fashion. They (obviously) do not require grout ... but water can get under the tiles. The advantage is that a damaged tile can be taken up and replaced. Vinyl sheets suck because damage is hard to repair.

thanks, i think i ll stick with the one I purchased. For first timers like me I think this will server good. I dont expect to last for 10 years but 2-3 years down I might be doing whole remodeling anyways.

I peeled open the old vinyl from kitchen and washer and drier area (attachment below), the washer dryer area has another vinyl tile so I am thinking to peel off both. As for the type of floor which I am trying to determine, I can not say for sure, however I knocked with hand and hammer and the way it sounds looks like a cement floor to me. Waht you guys think can you tell by just looking at pic?
