How do you install ceramic tile over vinyl tile?
It is best to remove the vinyl tile. If it is not on cement and is on wood you can install cement backer board. Be sure to put thin set under the board. If you spend the money and time to install ceramic tile and the vinyl tile comes loose all that $ is down the drain
What is the best tile cement to use and this cement tile can be installed on vinyl tile and install ceramic tile on it
yes you can but it is not recommended to install ceramic tiles over vinyl
Only if the vinyl was previously installed over concrete, and has a positive bond. Scar the finish of the vinyl with a hand sander (course paper), and use a high strength thinset for the installation.
Vinyl is one of the cheaper types of floor tile you can use. It is a little cheaper quality but looks just as good as ceramic tile. It is easy to clean and easy to install yourself.
There are many types of ceramic tile glue. Some of the 'mastic' types will work with vinyl, most of the 'thinset' types will not.
You can buy mortar that works on old vinyl floors. But I wouldn't recommend it. Assuming that you are going over OLD vinyl floor, you also have to assume that the glue holding the vinyl floor down is OLD and probably failing. Keeping that in mind, if you go directly over the vinyl floor, you are basically asking the OLD, possibly failing glue to hold down not only the vinyl it was originally holding in… Read More
That would depend on whether they are ceramic tiles or more vinyl tiles.
NOPE and in a huge way NOPE! ceramic & Vinyl tile adhesives adhere in a different way & with different chemistry, it will fail if you you use in on tiles
Yes it's possible. But installation can be unreliable. So better to ask about it to home experts. If you are looking for Ceramic tile for order then you can get it easily through stores like "BuilderoutletUSA"
Yes, but you should you use an adhesive that is ductile
Many things can go over ceramic with ease, but the "best" option is one which works in the room you're doing. For example, laminate flooring is most forgiving of the unevenness (groutlines) of ceramic tile and easiest to install - but I would not put laminate in a bathroom (it's not moisture resistant). For a bathroom, the best option over ceramic is sheet vinyl. Be sure to use leveling compound to smooth grout lines even… Read More
Definitly do not do this. Out with the old in with the new. Or only if u have to save money, and only if the tile is horriffic. Would hve to smooth tile with leveler.
A vinyl tile glue will do that -Mapei Ecobond, in Home Depot.
Technically you can but it is not reccomended. If the old tile is uneven, cracked, or loose it will cause your new tile to crack, break or pop out. You should at least lay down a subfloor on top of the old tile before installing the new tile.
If it has a timber floor under and vinyl is solid to the floor and not to thick screw down 10 mm ply at 150mm centres. seal ply with pva sealer prior too tilling. If it is a concrete floor it is best to lift vinyl.
yes, but it will slide over the years so I would not
You price a ceramic tile job by the square foot. This all depends on how much you have to install.
Yes, you can put rug over ceramic tile.
I would not recommend it. It will not bond properly. You will have to install an appropriate sub-floor, then install the tile on that
If it sits over a cement floor, then no. If it is a nailed down floor, then you can, but you still have to install a cement board.
. Depends what the tile is being laid onto. You would be best using a thinset cement or tile glue such as Unibond.
Technically you could but it is never reccomended. If the old floor is uneven, loose, or cracked, it will cause your new floor to pop up with loose tiles and even crack. If you do not want to remove your old tile you can try laying a cement board directly over the old tile and then laying the new tile on top of that. You can always consult with tile contractors if you run into… Read More
Yes you can if you first rough up the ceramic by sanding it. Use a vinyl mastic like Mapei Unibond.
A lot of people use vinyl flooring in a bathroom.
yes. Clean tile with a commercial degreaser. scar the surface with a hand sander. mop with clean water, and let dry. Install with fortified thinset.
Not directly as the ceramic tiles will soon show through the vinyl flooring. If the ceramics are laid on a wooden floor, you must take up the tiles and overboard with 6mm plywood. If the tiles are on a concrete floor, you can leave them down and lay a latex screed on top to provide you with a smooth floor for your vinyl

I have done this and I always have the hardwood installed first. Then I install the ceramic tile. To protect the hardwood floor from getting grout or glue on it I cover the hardwood floor with a soft cover (to prevent scratches) and tape it down. Then place a plastic cover over the hardwood. Then I can install the ceramic tile at the edge of the hardwood creating hardly or no seem and level with… Read More

Yes you can lay over travertine as long as they are stuck well , there are products available such as ultrabond which combined with the correct glue makes job less messy and totally guaranteed
No, there is too much movement in a laminate floor. Yes, if you use a perimeter sheet vinyl type product that looks like tile, however there may be movement. But since the question was vinyl tile, the correct answer is no.

Ceramic Tile Installation is not at all as hard as it may look. Simply find the measurements of the room for which you will install the Ceramic Tile, and go out to any of your local hardware stores and buy the tiles that fit you best. All you have to do is simply peel off the sticker on the tile, and just lay it neat and flat on your floor.
YES, most definitely. I have done lots of it.
You can in areas like a kitchen back splash. Just use a mastic glue. Don't tile over drywall in areas prone to high moisture, such as a shower, tub or floors.
Travertine is no more or less tile than ceramic or Porcelain in that application, although it may actually be lighter.. anyone that can install tile on a ceiling could do Travertine..
You can do this if your current tile floor is stable. Go around to each tile and knock on it, if it sounds solid, it's stable, if it sounds hollow, it's not. Even if everything is stable, I still wouldn't recommend installing over old ceramic floors. The main reason is that it's going to make that area of flooring really high. This will be especially noticeable if it butts up against other flooring types such… Read More
yes just prep your your tile with ardex
You should not adhere tile on top of tile. It is much better to rip it up and install on a secure surface and make sure it is smooth level. If you find yourself in a situation where you can not/should not remove the tile (e.g. if there is asbestos tile underneath or if there is a radiant heat systems under and you don't want to risk breaking/puncturing it), then the alternative is to pour… Read More
Yes, but I wouldn't recommend it. You will regret it later. Tile needs a cement base to adhere to. A wooden base is not good for ceramic tiles. I have seen tile floors where people have tiled over the wood. The tiles are loose, cracked and unlevel. The grout is coming out and water seeps through the floor.
You can if it's smooth and really sticking to the wall well enough. In this case, I would use a mastic style glue by Mapei.
