Who's responsible.......

Posted by footwedge (My Page) on

is the tile sub or the demo sub responsible for removing the existing linoleum? I think it should be included in the tile work.

For you floor contractors, what would be a fair unit price to remove rolled congoleum placed in 1988 glued to a concrete floor?

The responsible party is the one that includes the work in the contract.

No way to guestimate cost here without knowing square footage and what exactly needs to be removed. Your vinyl flooring may or may not contain asbestos in the backing.

RE: Who's responsible.......

I'm not looking for a total price but say a $/square foot price. The vinyl and glue would have to be removed to allow placement of tile.

Could congoleum placed in 1988 still have asbestos?

RE: Who's responsible.......

It is unlikely that Congoleum sheet vinyl installed in 1988 would contain the fiber.

RE: Who's responsible.......

Cost depends on the sq footage. We normally charge 2.00 approx a sq ft and pay offer a rate to installer of 65% of the figure. it depends on the amount of it that needs removed.
