Most effective way to remove cut back?
You may have read my other post that I am going to tile my concrete basement floor.
The previous owner had vinyl tiles and a black adhesive stuff I think people have called cut back.
The stuff looks like it is warn down pretty well but I am concerned about the new tiles sticking.
Is there a special adhesive I can use with the new ceramic tiles or do I need to use something to remove the cut back? Should I rent a concrete floor grinder and smooth it down that way?
What do you all recommend.
You can scrape the cutback, but I wouldn't grind it. It has asbestos in it.
Mepi and Latacrete make thinsets that will go over that nasty stuff..
Call a real tile store or check out JOHNBRIDGE tile forum.
