My vinyl floor seems to have too many layers. There is plastic-backed padding, then a layer that is about 1/8" thick. It appears to be tar with plastic laminated on both sides (it acts kind of like a roofing shingle). Then the vinyl floor that you see/walk on. The whole combination holds water really well. It's been raining for a couple of weeks here in College Station, and most of the padding is wet. My roommate's Furd has vinyl and padding only. I'm thinking about taking out the middle layer since I can't see any reason for it. What do yall think? Should I replace the padding?
