What is the easiest way to lay linoleum?
Sorry, but you will not be happy if you put it over anything but a recommended underlayment. Remove all the tile, etc. and put in an underlayment with screws. The best underlayment will be 1/8 – 1/4″ gypsum/cementious product. Check local recommendations! It is very esy to lay properly. They usually recommend gobs of screws. I know it is tempting, but do not skimp. Make sure the screw heads are not protruding. The underlayment can be cut by scoring with a lino or razor knife. It can also be cut with a variety of saws. Use a wide putty knife to fill all holes and cracks between underlayment sheets with a sandable crack filler. I have used “Durhams Water Putty” and “Fix-It-All” a lot. Do not leave any excess as it can be difficult to sand smooth. After installing the underlayment, you should “dry-fit” your lino. You may leave it half-rolled as you trim the edges to fit your space. Use a very sharp knife. I leave it purposefully long to do a final trim at the gluing/rolling step. Note: Co
