Kitchen Floor Prep for Tiling

presidentsdadOctober 3, 2008

I have a question for the experts here. I am in the process of ripping up a two layer floor in my kitchen in preparation for tiling. The two layers are a linoleum layer and then a glued down (to the linoleum) engineered hardwood floor. Getting it up was pretty easy, but the paper backing on the linoleum is left on the floor. Do I need to remove this paper backing before I put down the backer board for the tile?

Not if you use thin set and screws.
