I just bought 24 foot 1.5 inch steel tubing and 64 sf of 1.5 inch rigid insulation. I have sprayed all wetted areas with a good mold killing solution although I do not see any mold. Sure smells good, though. Tomorrow I will weld new supports where the flooring meets the cabinets and other needed areas. Scared me to death taking it this far but I do believe it will come out well. Once complete I will try again to post before/after pictures.
What CAUSED the mushy floor? No good covering up the symptom if the problem hasn't been fixed ... especially with a water leak!

We removed our ceramic tile because it was too cold. We removed our carpet because it was too hard to keep clean. We installed vinyl flooring. It has been a great choice for us.

i would only go back with the same weight that was removed

i am sure you got alot better MPG when the weight came out
truth be told i would not go back in with tile
high end 3/4 wood flooring is better for weight.
i pulled all my tile and did this
