Remove hardwood for tile
 
I am tiling a bathroom that currently has hardwood floor. The floor run continuous from the hallway into the bathroom. I want to remove the hardwood in the bathroom and install backer board and tile. At the doorway i want a marble threshold. I am trying to find out the best way to cut the hardwoods at the door. Do they make a marble threshold that will cover the wood floor slightly. If not what is the best way to cut the wood straigh and with a fine cut. Also will there be a gap between the wood and the threshold. The threshold will sit on the backer board.

A sharp circular saw...with a straight edge to follow. Use double stick tape to hold your straight edge. You may have to score the surface cut line first, cut then finish with a hand saw.

Sorry, the ones I've seen are square edged.

depends on how straight you make the cut.

And the question is.......?

do you have to rip out the tile or can you just glue it right on top of it?

hopefully others will chime in...but I would remove it. It kind of depends on the elevations of the surrounding floor. With the tile left in place would the new floor height be too tall? What adhesive would you use to securely fasten the floor to the tile?

Again...if it were mine, it would come out. But maybe that's just me.
