Bvflooring
I have a spot in my kitchen floor where the prior owner cut through the flooring to have a wood stove installed. The cutout is approx. 1/4 inch deep, but it is not the same depth all over, give or take here and there. I would like to fill this hole in so I can put down new flooring (not sure on tile ot vinyl). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated on what i need to use to fill this in. I am clueless to do it yourself type work (this will be my first project) :)

I would use a modified flooring patch filler to fill it in, then reapply, scrape, and sand until smooth.

I recommend Ardex sdf Feather Finish: http://www.ardex.com/prod-sdf-bro.htm

If installing resilient products (linoleum, sheet vinyl, vinyl tile), I would then install an approved plywood underlayment under the new resilient floor, such as:

MultiPly:

TecPly:

Halex:

If installing ceramic tile, then I would recommend a cementious backer board such as:

Durock:

WonderBoard:

HardiBacker:

or a uncoupling load distribution membrane such as Schluter Ditra:

Wow!!! 3 layers of linoleum (sp?)!!!!

I wouldn't fill if in with anything permanant. I expect that someone will want to rip all of that down to the subfloor and start over someday. I am not a professional, but I would maybe fill that in if I know the bottom layer would come up if needed.

Please don't add a 4th layer unless for some reason there is asbestos adhesives involved in all this.
