comment Troubleshooting a leaking exterior door
@TheEvilGreebo - I have at just the door and that seems to be the point of infultaration. I have recently replaced the siding with Clapboards and there are no running seams over the door.

comment Do I have to remove the old thinset before installing new tile?
up vote for your comment - The walls have just been painted in the bathrooms. Will this fling the "mud" all over the place? Can it be done with misting water to keep the dust down? I like this idea as well.

If I could choose both answers I would. Your input was most helpful and I wish I could give you some of my rep for taking the time to answer. TY.

I will rent the power chisle to get the thin set off. The MC hammer was an option I didn't even think about....Hmmm Can't touch this....Could be handy if I go far with the power chisle and he could warn me that I have gone to far into the concrete. lol. Nice touch!

+1 for your answer. I have used self level before, but just in a small area. This would be about 20' long by 5' wide. thats a boat load of mixing and as I remember it ain't cheap, so the cost be be near the price of the flooring. I might look into the grinding down. Is there a specific tool I should ask for at the rent a center?

+1 for your reply.The thin set is applied directly to the concrete slab. There is no way I can cut, remove replace the sub floor.

about 1/8" but it runs the length of the room, in the direction the wood will be layed out. It will be just enough to seperate the seams of the planks in that area.

Is there a mechanical device that I can use to speed up the process? So far I have had two days with a cold chisle, screwdriver and hammer in my removal attempt in bathroom one and still have some to left on the floor.
