something to scrape the floor is about all you will need. the glue, well, scrape,scrape and then scrape some more. sanding will also work. whats under the laminate? If it is anything other than cement then you are going to have to lay cement board and if that is the case then you don't necessarily have to scrape the glue perfectly flat. you can also go to your local home depot and buy something that will soften the glue up. good luck

Be sure you get a very professional installer, cork needs to have someone who knows how.
This, or similar Q's are asked here often. I tile every day of my life, as well as respond to What can I do? If you absolutely refuse to remove the tile, and start from the beginning, you should assume you'll need to install a new substrtate for whatever NEW species of flooring you want, and that can be done OVER tile, but I'd refuse the job, if asked. A new substrate, depending on what that is, could allow you new tile, hardwood/laminate, carpet, etc. The process would be similar in any case, as you'd need to screw new substrate down, and likely miss grout lines often, unless you do some tedious planning. You'd have to remove cove base to replace later, BUT, in any case you'll lose approximately less than and inch in height from floor to ceiling, no matter what you choose to RE floor with.

Q:Vinyl floor tiles (self-stick)?
Asbestos in flooring has been outlawed since the 70s and couldn t be sold after 79. Always best to take up the old and start fresh, but under certain conditions you can install over existing vinyl or vinyl tiles. The flooring down now must be very clean, grease free, bonded well with no loose or missing hunks. You should use a filler to go over the seams or grout lines on the tile down now. This will help prevent those seams from showing through the new tiles. You must off set the new tiles so you don t have a seam over a seam. This must be done vertically as well as horizontally.

Peel and stick tile come in varying qualities, but even the inexpensive ones I've used stuck well...... They need to be applied to a clean smooth surface and are an excellent alternative to expensive repairs. Properly nailed underlay is a perfect base for them, and it's a rewarding DIY project.
Q:What do think about cork flooring?
Newer cork flooring is much higher density than the old stuff. Still it does scratch and tear so I would not use it if you are hard on floors. I would not recommend for bathrooms. It is water resistant but not waterproof. I like cork floors for the looks and acoustic properties. I would not use it in my home but that is because with the boys and two dogs it would not be practical. I owned a janitorial service for many years. In the 1970's several clients had cork floors. There were not many companies that knew how to maintain them. In one office building the floor had been installed in 1948 and was still good. Newer cork is compressed to make it harder and more wear resistant and is usually finished with polymers or urethanes for for water resistance, wear and maintainability.
