unorthodox idea for new flooring
Hi All! basically what I want to do is cover up the old floor with 3/4" plywood, wall to wall, all thru the whole house, and then on top of that I want to add a pretty top layer in a diagonal pattern. there's number of reasons for not tearing up existing tile. one is that most of the house is black asbestos tile. not vinyl asbestos, but asbestos. I don't want to jar any dust loose, which supposedly the part than can hurt people. anyway, it would add an inch and 1/2 to my floor
and I'd lose that much headroom on the top, or ceiling. no big deal there. would it pass code? thanks for any feedback.
