My second floor condo has a concrete base. In the kitchen, vinyl sheeting was glued directly to concrete. Can I just lay ceramic tile 12" over this vinyl? My neighbor recently removed his vinyl with a scraper and really gouged his concrete. I would really like to avoid this senerio if possible. Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be most appreciated

Remove the vinyl. Do not try to install ceramic tile over it.

i'm going to give you a differant opinion.if your vinyl is well glued down,just lay over the top.all the vinyl will do is act as a moisture barrier. just lightly sand the top of the vinyl to rough it up a little (dont break through to the backing)...custom building products (available at Home Depot)make a thin set mortar"flexbond premium flexible bonding mortar" to go directly over lino/vinyl....good luck
