Using luan wall paneling over asbestos vinyl?

Posted by hollan (My Page) on

One room of our house has luan wall paneling and what appears to be asbestos vinyl flooring. It hasn't been tested for asbestos but it's the green backing type that usually is. We are taking down the paneling to sheetrock. I am wondering if there is any reason we couldn't use that same paneling to cover the old vinyl, then put a new floor over that?

Forgot to mention that we are planning to redo that room with groutable vinyl tiles, in case that matters.
