Old linoleum and new ceramic tile
I am renovating my kitchen, and the current floor is 2 layers of old old linoleum. I spent an hour trying to remove the old stuff (and glue) and got about a square foot done.
My question is, can I just put new plywood over top the old linoleum, put down cement board on top of that and then lay down the tile? If yes, what size plywood is recommended?
Another issue is the current floor has some noticeable low spots. I know self leveling compounds arent the best to use over linoleum, but if I am putting down plywood and cement board would I be ok here (by putting down the leveling compound, then put plywood/cement board over top of it)? Not concerned about raising floor height, replacing everything in the kitchen but the linoleum isn't cooperating.
Thanks to anyone for any insight.
