Well I guess knowing how big the area is changes things....as long as your slab can handle removing the material and will still be strong enough not to crack once the medallion is put on it.

Thanks to everyone for your help. Looks like cutting into the concrete should be okay, so I'll give it a shot.

How thick does the concrete floor have to be to safely cut a 1/4 inch deep? I forgot to mention that below the concrete floor is an underground garage. Does anyone know the typical thickness of a concrete floor like that or how I can go about and check? Thanks.

Typically, reinforced concrete slabs have at least 1" of concrete covering the rebar. This concrete is of little structural value, more for protection of the rebar than anything. So, removing 1/4" and replacing it with something else is OK.

This is where the wet set installation would take out the guess work and the jackhammer. Love a wet mud....
