installing carpet over vinyl asbestos tiles?

17 years ago

We have two layers of asbestos tiles in our family room/basement (lucky us!).

The bottom layer is the 9x9 type, and the top layer is ther 12x12 peel and stick type.

Can we have carpet installed over these two layers? I don't think I want to have the floor leveled with compound (to encapsulate) and do a floating floor (this house isn't worth that kind of improvement).

Thoughts on carpet?
