        Is it possible to install wood or tile flooring over the top of vinyl asbestos tiles? If so, do I put a barrier between the flooring and VAT or do I install it directly over the top?

        Easiest would be to install a floating wood engineered floor. Floating floors take a thin pad, the better style pad is designed also as a vapor barrier - that will do the trick.
