drtbk: "He's saying if he leaves the tile there and puts the laminate over top, then he would have to raise the floor where the old carpets are. That is where I believe he is putting the 1/4" ply."
OK, that's do-able if the sub isn't concrete!

I'm too lazy to go back and re-read this thing to play catch up.

drtbk: "So my question is about putting 1/4 plywood directly onto a concrete floor."
How's that going to work?


Now I'm confusing myself.

monty. we have torn out miles of tile. it will always be worth it in the end. there may be times to take short cut's but now is not one of them. they make tools for the job to make it easier. a small jack hammer or chipping hammer with a 3inch spade will do the job. you can rent them. you realy dont want to go over the tile. if you can't afford to do it right you can't afford to do it over. good luck.

just tile.....
I agree, Thank You, we appreciate all of your help!

I'm now going to go back and sit in my corner and chew on my bone for a while. If anything else comes up you guys be sure to whistle for me and I'll come a runnin'.

Snowing here! I think I'll try to find my ball and go frolicking in the snow for a while.
