Sorry if this is a repeat thread... I search for literally and hour for this question to prevent repeats.
I am as new as it gets to DIY home projects and I am seeking some expert advise! After reading so many other threads i am confident I'm at the right place.
We noticed that there are already two linoleum floors down in the kitchen and are almost positive the bottom floor will contain asbestos. I understand we SHOULD pick up both floors (read at least 40 other threads and saw this numerous times per thread) to get to the subfloor but that top linoleum floor is glued down solid through out the whole kitchen (no air bubbles, creaks in the floor/ weak spots). Also, we don't want to deal with any asbestos problems and the height of the tile on top of the linoleum is almost perfect with the height of the tile in the hallway (a random surprise!).
So my question is what is the best mortar we can use to put tile on top of the linoleum floor? Century Tile employee suggested 254 Platium Laticrete. Would you agree? Is there a mortar available at home depot or Lowes that is just as good or better (cuz we have soooo many gift cards for there
Have no idea if this matters but i will put it out there.
- size of tile is 13x13
- 130 sq. ft kitchen
- house is ~ 50 years old
Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions!
