How do you rough up the old tile to install new tile on top of it?
I have never covered up floor tile before without removing the old tile but I have covered up an old back splash with new wall tile and did nothing to go over it just used the white pre mixed wall glue to install the tile right over top with no issues.
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.
Sure can, but if its waxed tile you should rough it up unless there's a chance its got asbestos in it. Then use a primer sealer over that top to give the glue something to bind to. Also remember that the new tile is only as good as the old tile that's down. If the old stuff comes loose your new tile job is shot.
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
Technically you can but it is always reccomended that you remove the old tile before tiling the new tile. If the old tile is lose, uneven, or out of place it will cause the new tile to break or pop out. If you want, you can lay a subfloor on top of the old tile then place the new tile on top of that.

Though people do tile over tile, it's really not recommended. The underlying surface can make or break a tile installation. Preparing that surface is the most important step. So I'd remove the old tile, prepare the surface properly and then install your new tile. This will insure the long lasting beauty of your fireplace tile.
I don't think I would, if it is a shiny glazed tile in place now, There wont be a bond between the old and new tiles. If the current tile is a rough slate tile, maybe. Check the recommedations of the manufacturer of the tile you want to install. Another option is to install 1/4 inch concrete backerboard over the existing tile, but it should be screwed down and that's a real chore in your… Read More
You can lay tile on top of tile but it is not recommended. If you old tile is uneven, broken, or loose it will cause your new tile to pop out, break, or become loose as well. You can lay a cement board down on top of the old tile to give your new tile a secure surface. But, you should always remove your old tile, if possible.
Technically you can, but it is not recommended. If the old tile is loose, cracked, or not flush it will cause the new tile to crack, pop out, or break. If you pay a hard surface, such as a cement board over the old tile first you can make it work, but it may be wise to remove the old tile before installing new tile.
It is possible but I would not reccomend it. If possible remove the old tile before laying the new tile. If you want to avoid removing the old tile you can lay a cement board over the old tile before installing the new tile.
It would be better to remove the old tile, then put your new tile in it's place. If you tile over the old there is a chance it could come off and your new tile with it. I know of an adhesive swimming pool tile border made of 4mil liner, its a peel and stick called borderlines adhesive tile manufactured by Jedco Products. All the internet websites carry it and it looks great, it would… Read More
Don't do it. Beat the old off with a hammer.
Only way is sanding with a rough paper unfortunately.
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
You need to measure your wall/floor accurately to work out the square footage of tiles needed. Your tile supplier will be able to work this out for you if you take along your measurements. Your walls/floor will then need to be clean and free of old tile adhesive. You may need to install a new hardboard floor to cover old floorboards. Use a spirit level then starting from the longest straightest part begin to install… Read More
Do you have to remove your kitchen cabinets to install a new tile floor Otherwise won't the new flooring make it hard to replace appliances such as dishwasher or stove?
No one removes their cabinets to lay new tile. If your stove isn't built-in it can be moved and tile laid under it. If it is built-in you would buy a new stove the same size as the old one. Most stoves & dishwashers only come in a few standard sizes so it wouldn't be a problem to find one that fiits.
You can, but you want to be sure the ceramic tile is not cracked or broken, make sure it is even, and not loose. It is reccomended that you you always remove any old tile before tiling. You can always lay a subfloor on top of the old tile to ensure your new tile was crack or pop out.
The new tile can be glued to the old ones. If possible, stagger the new ones so that they attach to two tiles. If you have to cut the first row in half, you can use the piece you cut off on the other side of the room.
trim the tile such that edges are not raised up. remove and loose tile that is not adhered to the floor. Armstrong makes a product called self leveling compound that you can pour on the floor. It fills in indentations and low spots and levels itself due to its thinness. It will dry and you can apply tile over it. This product is made to fill in grout lines that are molded into floor tiles… Read More
It is always recommended that you do not go this route, but it is possible. You want to be sure that the old tile is secure and flat. If it is loose and uneven it will cause the new tile to crack or pop out. You can always lay down a sub-floor on top of the old tile to give the new tile floor a secure base.
no the tiles have too smooth of a finish and other tile will not stick to them need to remove old tiles and then lay new
First you have to pull up the old flooring. Once you have the old flooring up you have to put the tile glue on the floor, and place the tile on top of it. Then you have to grout in between each of the tiles. When you get to the edges you will have to cut the tiles to fit.
It is not always a good idea to lay granite tiles over the existing ceramic tile flooring. Why? The old ceramic tile flooring would have already aged and lost the strength. Since the flooring would have developed cracks and got loosened at many places. In order to lay granite tiles newly over the ceramic tiles, you need to prepare the surface by making it it rough for bondage of mortar, which again further weakens the… Read More
I have an old piece of mortar that cracked under tile they are still intact so is it okay to spread new mortar over the ceramic tile?
Yes, but you need to scrape or chip off as much of the old mortar as you can - both from the back of the tile and from the floor, just enough to ensure that the tile will set level.
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.
I have ugly ceramic tile in a 2 piece bathroom. I don't have the money to hire someone to replace the tile. What are my options to change colour?
You can look into reglazing the tile,or take a class at Home Depot or buy a book,and tile it yourself. They also have dye products to change grout color. Take your time on the layout,There are also bonding products you can use to go tile over the old tile without removing the old tile (super full flex by TEC) make sure the old tile is still bonded before you do this, I tap on it… Read More
If the old glue is well stuck and smooth. -Use a mastic type of glue, not thinset cement.
To replace the decorative tile border on a concrete pool, the pool will have to be drained. The old tile needs to be taken off and a new tile with waterproof grout or concrete can be installed. The pool should dry for a week or so, before it is refilled.
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.

Tape around the old tile with gaffer tape to protect from any tool slipping. Use a mini grinder, cost £15 b&q, or hire for £8 a day hss hire.

Depends how thick it is and what the wall is made off.
Yes, as long as the tile is only 1 layer, the floor is sound structurally, and you use a very high quality latex fortified thinset. If the old tile is cracking, those cracks will only transfer to the new.
you will bust it up & remove & drop a new one in it's place.. That is the short answer. The grout will have to removed as well & breaking tile & flying grout can be dangerous on your eyes & ears, fingers & toes, so make sure you wear safety glasses, hearing protection & gloves & shoes are nice in the workplace too. Please understand that you will need to remove enough of the… Read More
I've been watching this question gather dust for a couple of days. I think that nobody's touched it because nobody wants to give you the bad news. You can't prep an existing wall to accept tile. You can only stick tile to new work. If there's any sort of paint, plaster, adhesive from old tile or wall paper or an old "glue up" type surround, the tile isn't going to stick. Once you've picked out… Read More
I wouldn't - you risk the old ones flaking loose and ruining the new job.
there is no repair for a belt tensioner. just buy a new tensioner. remove old belt, remove old tensioner, it is held on with one bolt. install new tensioner. install new belt
Install the software from the game on the new system.
The tile itself costs between 2-20 $/square foot. The installation is 5-10 $/square foot depending on layout and any custom design work. Also labor for removal of old floor and upgrading sub-floor to plywood instead of chipboard is extra, and there is some cost in the grout, sealer, don't forget your baseboards etc. Tile will also be ordered with an additional 10-20% for waste. So you can get a pretty good idea by getting your… Read More

Can you lay new ceramic tile over old ceramic tile in your bathroom if you sand it with 80 grit sand paper and put some kind of bonding agent or sealer on it?
If your old ceramic tile isn't cracking, loose or otherwise breaking apart then yes you can lay new tile over old. I wouldn't sand it with sand paper because I don't believe that sand paper will do enough scarcifying to the tile. get a right angle grinder, put a diamond blade used for tile on it and run it across the top of the tile. you don't need to take the whole surface off just… Read More
It is best to remove the wall tiles. You need a flat service and a lot of times old tile will not be perfectly flat. If you remove the tiles you will have a good base to tile on. If you don't want to remove the tiles you may be able to add a backer board on top of the old tile and then tile on that.
remove clutch cover. remove old belt. install new belt.
What you need to do first is to check if you have that room near the threshold of the door for that extra concrete(which is minimum of 3.5" inches) then you need to remove the top surface of the old concrete to be rough surface don't break too much just about an 1"wash clean and let it dry and only then to install the new concrete.
Yes, it does . Old tile glue will ball up and mess your job.

So long as the old formica is still stuck down well. It can be done. You'll need to rough up the old laminate so the glue will stick. Use very coarse sandpaper, either by hand or with an electric sander. Make sure you get all the way into the corners and edges. Clean it with denatured alcohol before you start gluing.
