Hello from fire stricken Colorado. I am a diyer, I do tons of projects on my old house. Currently, I will lay ceramic tile. But, there are still some areas of the kitchen floor that have linoleum. Just patches here and there. I will put thinset, then backer board, then more thinset, then my tiles. I chiseled off a piece of the linoleum, and it is only about 1/16 th of an inch thick. Can I do my tile work without having to remove all the old patches of linoleum? Will the thinset and backer board level that all out enough so I won't have any problems with the new tile, like cracking. Any info will help, especially if you tell me I don't have to remove the old flooring. Hammer and chisel will take forever, and I am old, with bad knees and back. Hahaha. Sucks getting old. Thanks in advance!!
