Hi there,
Looking for some advice here on which way is the best to go.

I'm getting conflicting reports from various tiling shops about tiling onto sheet vinyl stuck solidly onto a concrete floor.
I have 110m2 that i'm pricing on a floor and I don't want any comebacks should i get the job.
One company has said it's a no-no, lift the vinyl, and adhesive, from the existing floor, prime it then your good to go.
2nd company has said, i can clean up the vinyl, scratch the surface so the adhesive has something to grip onto, prime then use flexible rapidset direct onto the existing vinyl.
3rd company has said I can go direct onto the vinyl, once it has been cleaned up, but are also saying the tile is only stuck onto the vinyl and should that in time come away from the existing floor then they won't guarantee it, even though they say their product is good for it.

Any thoughts would be great
Thanks
