Question hardwood over vinyl

Can 3/4" hardwood be placed directly over vinyl flooring? Does builders felt or tar paper still need to be used?

Installing hardwood over vinyl floor

Hardwood floors can be installed over vinyl and the vinyl can serve as the vapor retarder. If there are several layers of vinyl, then it is best that vinyl be removed. Many of the older linoleum and vinyl floor coverings contained asbestos. Should you decide to remove an older floor covering and have concerns about asbestos you can go to www.doityourself.com/home-safety/asbestos.htm to order a test kit.
