We just built a new house with 18×18 porcelain ceramic tiles on the main level of the house.
The builder’s flooring contractor laid 2 different colored tiles and it now must be redone. I know what it’s like to remove a tile floor (NIGHTMARE OF A MESS) and they are insisting on laying the new tile over the new existing tile.
I had never heard of the possibility of doing this until I started researching it.
While I have read it can be done, somehow I don’t feel good about it. My obvious concern is how well it will bond and stay bonded.
Anyone have any good info for me on this?
Your help is appreciated!
I have also tiled over old tiles and it turned out great. The main thing is the correct adhesive for tiling over a smooth surface. A good friend of mine is a professional tiler he told me it would be fine to tile over tiles, both floor and walls. He said that’s what a lot of professional tilers do.
If the doors in your new home have already been hung you will most likely have to have some timber shaved off them.
