LVP floated over engineered hardwood

3 years ago

We bought a house with awful engineered bamboo flooring. It has antique strain black striping throughout and is hand grooved.

I believe it is glued down.

Do we go go through the mess of removing it? (It sits on slab) or can a high quality LVP be floated over it without issue? We are considering Provenza which has underlayment backing.

The texture of the bamboo flooring is my concern. Attaching a photo for better idea. You can tell from the photo the slight grooves in the flooring.

chance it? Or demo?
