Just moved into an old house and bathrooms have tile everywhere.I can only take so much old tile. Is it possible to lay subfloor and new flooring over old tile if it's in good shape?
I recently had local installers put a luan sub floor over vinyl tiles and I ended up with a mess. I called my local Home Depot about the problem and they said "only wood to wood" Have you done anything with your tile floors?
If you are talking ceramic tile and it is in good shape with NO cracked tile or loose grout, then you can go directly over it with modified thinset and new tile, but only after you do a thorough cleaning to remove any soap scum, aeresol spray residue, dirt, etc first. Remove toilets and pedestal sinks first in any bathrooms prior to tiling.
Tile is in good condition, is there anything besides tile that I can put over it? I would like wood or laminate
