    Tim, I'm kind of dense, could you post a photo of that cutting the baseboard deal?

    If it is ceramic tile I use a chipping hammer with a wide chisel, if it is vinyl tile then I use a floor scraper. After the ceramic is removed then you have to go back with the scraper and get the thin set down so it is a fairly smooth surface.

    If you have a Harbor Freight near you one of their multifunction tools comes in pretty handy for scraping and cutting door jambs and base boards. Oscillating Multifunction Power Tool w/ Variable Speed

    Thanks heaps! It is the laminate Tim. I sure will ask when the problems come up.

    How do you get the old tile off?

    The answer is yes you can go over the tile BUT you have to be careful with things such as door clearance, in kitchens I have run into situations where if the tile was not removed then the dishwasher would not have enough clearance to come out if it ever needed repair or replacement. I typically strip the old flooring just to avoid the headaches. Each house is a little different so there is no real rule saying you can or cannot go over the existing floor.
    I just put down 1800 sq ft of laminate last week so if you have any questions ask away while it is still fresh in the memory banks.

    Are you talking about laminate flooring or tongue and groove wood flooring?

    Costco flooring questions

    Yo the forum
    We purchased some of the snap together flooring from Costco yesterday. Looks easy enough but I have a question I can't find the answer to on line.
    Do I need to remove the old floor tile first or is it OK to put down the poly barrier then just put the wood down on top of that?

    Any other advice or tips are welcome.
