wavy subfloor problem
I recently moved into a 3 year old gemcraft house and I would like to tile the kitchen. the problem is that the osb subflooring used for the floors is very wavy under the linoleum. i am told that this is a result of not allowing proper drying time. if i want to make the tile look correct, is taking up the old subfloor my only option, and if so, will i definetly have to remove the cabinets? Any advice would be appreciated. thank you.

Slow down now. Just secure the old sub-floor with quality screws and set your underlayment and then level the floor with the appropriate mortar product, then as you set your tile with thin-set, you can fine tune it to a perfect flat and level surface you are envisioning.

Tile guys will have more to say on this. I've just watched it done out of the corner of my eye while I was laying hardwood.
