I am looking at undertaking a "major" project at home where I'll be
pulling up all the vinyl in bathrooms and laundry room and replacing
with tile. A portion of the subfloor is concrete (lower level) and 1/2
or 3/4 plywood (top floor). What is the best way to tackle the removal,
prep and replacment with tile?
On concrete floors, with well bonded vinyl, I have used a 2 part thinset
made by mapei. No need to remove the vinyl. This made the high cost of this
special thinset very attractive. I have done a few jobs like this over the
years and all have held up with no problems.
Check with you local tile supplier to see if it can be used on plywood
