Introducing myself with a question on rescuing flooring
Hi Folks, I am new to posting here though I have spent the last few yrs drooling over your kitchens and dreaming about mine! Now it is time for me to get serious and start the process (shudder..). I hope to get input and learn from all you knowledgeable folks here. I will post on our layout problems separately giving more background on our family and needs as suggested in the "New to Kitchens" post.
My initial question is can Hardwood floors under tile be saved? Yes, the PO covered up the hardwoods with tile and white tile at that!! It would be great if it could be saved. It will give us continuity with the rest of the floor and be one less thing to spend $$ on. Or is the process of getting the tile out likely to damage the hardwoods? Has somebody here done it successfully? If so, can you give me pointers on what to specify to the contractors.
I look forward to being a more active presence over here-though with probably more q's than answers at this stage!
