Hello - Slate Floor Tile: We have slate in our entry area and it appears as though someone dropped something and a piece of slate chipped out and there are a couple of scratches in some other areas. Is there some way that I can repair this? The chip is about 4 inches long with a depth of less than 1/4 inch. Vinyl or Linoleum : I want to put peel n stick tiles over my absolutely ugly kitchen and bathroom floor. (Can't imagine why I didn't do it years ago.) Trouble is, I don't know whether the floor is linoleum or vinyl. Is there some defining method that will tell me which it is? It is neither tiles nor one piece. It is several large pieces. I guess I need to know if there is a difference in the way it is applied based on the material that is being covered. All the sites that I have been to indicate that one should not remove the floor but just tile over it. Also, the family room floor which is adjacent to the kitchen is currently covered in w to w carpet over a plywood floor. The rest of the house (except for slate entry way and upstairs bathrooms) have hardwood floors. I would like the same flooring in the F/R as I plan to put in the kitchen and 1/2 bath and would like to know how the application over this type of floor is handled. It is conceivable that I may have it done by the store from which I purchase the flooring but I need to know all the parameters before I go in and get sold "a bill of goods". I was looking at Lowe's and they have folks that install and I would consider that option if they can be trusted to do good work. Otherwise, I should have to look elsewhere for the installers....say Angie's List. I know this is a long post...but I like to make everything perfectly clear so that the good folks who traverse this site know the particulars. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
