    Additional details. This is a slab on grade house. So if I remove the tile on the first floor, it will be a concrete subfloor. The tile removal company grinds the concrete to a smooth finish, but I would expect to have to do some patching, apply crack membrane in several locations and potentially do some minor leveling where I know that there is some slope in the slab. The advantage I see to tile removal is not having to deal with raising the slab height in the currently carpeted living room and not having to bring the cabinets up about 3/4″ inch total to account for the existing tile plus the new plank height. My gut tells me that taking the tile out is the right decision, but I would appreciate your thoughts on this decision. Thanks.
