We are trying to get a bid for a linoleum replacement for our bathroom. The only local company interested
in the job is insisting that the underlayment in the bathroom has to be replaced because it is older than
five years, (13 years old) and therefore would be dried out and soak up all the adhesive. The bathroom is
5' by 6' has 24' of coved area, so it is already expensive to do the job. With medium grade linoleum, they
want about $700.00 to remove and install new materials. Since $150.00 of this is for new underlayment,
and there is no sign of water damage anywhere, we were wondering. Is this necessary, or normal?
