Right now the linoleum is stuck to floor well and not coming up anywhere that I can see. If it was would defiantly remove. Will be putting down ceramic or porcelain tile (wife bought tile and I can't remember which it was).
Thanks for the help.
The guys on here will want to know how thick your subfloor is as well as what your substrate is being help up with ect joist size and span. You need a approved substate for tile before you tile.
Aslo yes take the 1/4" out with the linoleum attached you will kill 2 birds on stone that way.
