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.

FOUL!!!!!

No fair telling secrets.

Why allow a thread to go this far then go behind closed doors. keep it up front so others can benefit from the posts.

Failed ceramic floor---need options


I looked at job today about 3 hours ago it is an interesting problem.

This is an issue were the consumer will have to decide what the next step is. The Konecto would work for the next 5-7 years but after that all bets are off.

The removal will be very time consuming and filthy.
The client screwed CBU down better than any tile setter I have ever seen with screws on 3 inch centers, I can see the screws through the tongue and groove 5"plank primary substrate.

What I have concluded is that the carpet has created movement and the board is now crumbling around the screw point allowing movement in the CBU.

The best fix is eradication, the temp fix is Konecto.

To Jazz: You and your husband were very polite thank you letting me stop by and see the problem. I will be there for you, even if only in advice.
