Yes, Avaire can be installed directly above many flooring types including vinyl. Just make sure there aren't any loose spots. Some holes/gaps are generally OK. A good way to check is to place a Avaire tile above the area in question and test for "rocking" - if the tile rocks, you'll need to fill or smooth-out the area. Good luck!

What happens when you get to the edge and you have to trim the tile to fit?

When you reach the edge, whether a wall or the transition to a different room, you simply cut the Avaire tile with a wet saw. Since there aren't any more tiles to connect, the coupling tabs are not needed at the walls or transitions. At the wall, you'll need to leave about 1/4" of space to allow room for the tabs to connect. This can be covered with a quarter-round or other trim (or, as I did in my bathroom, I just grouted right to the baseboard and left it open).

Your local home center will have a variety of trims and transitions that will work with Avaire - depending upon the relative heights of the two floors you are connecting. Choose a transition that can accommodate the 14.75 mm height (a little less than 5/8") of Avaire tile.

Yes you can put Avaire tile over existing tile as long as the floor is with in floor tolerance 1/4 inch in 10feet.
