A precursor: This is my first time owning a home, flooring, etc.
Well, I tore up my laundry room this week as a fun little renovation project. I've never done a floor before, so I wanted to attempt it on the cheap. It had some horrible vinyl that I have since scraped up. Once I cleared out the old floor, to my horror I've realized there is ceramic underneath! Unfortunately, demolishing the tile down to the slab will cause my floor height to be lower then I wanted so that is out of the question.
So, I'm left with a level floor covered in a black gooey adhesive. I went to Lowe's to search for an adhesive remover and they told me to tile over it. Will this work? I feel like I cannot clean it properly because its almost impossible to sweep up.
Things I've purchased:
Tiles (16x16) on clearance - Woo!
Trowel, Bucket, Grout
Flexguard thinset (since there's tile underneath)
So far my "budget" is sitting around 130! Here's some pics:
