There are two ways to do any job.

The right way and the wrong way.

Do it right everytime.

Ther is no long lasting paint for tiled floors. Some have used epoxy paints but it usually looks like a tile floor that was painted and nothing more.

If the old tile are in good shape with NO cracked tile or loose grout you can set new tile over the old using a modified thinset after you thoroughly clean the old tile of any and all oils, soaps, dirt, etc.

l had a porcelanite ceramic tile floor installed and the installer put on a sealer that started to peel after 4 days. now he is trying to sand off sealer back to the orginal semi glazed tile. is this going to ruin my chance of having any type of shine, even a small one? the sealant did not take because the floor says glazed ceramic and it did not take. Help!!!
