Failed ceramic floor---need options
I am trying to weigh all my options. I am also trying to figure out if I can do this tear out job by myself. My husband travels and a have a small child. I also don't have any relatives where I live.
My kitchen is 11x13. How much in the Louisville, KY area should I expect to be charged (labor only) to strip my multiple layers down to the subfloor? Also, what is a good estimate for having new ceramic tile installed on the diagonal? No way am I going to attempt this myself.
I would still like to keep my cabinets in place. The cement board in that area was laid directly onto the subfloor because there were old cabinets placed in that same spot. Still, I didn't put thinset beneath the cement board in that area as well as the rest of the kitchen.
Thanks for all the help. I really appreciate your time.
