Installing Ceramic tile over vinyl tile


Can you install ceramic tile over vinyl tile? I have a very small bathroom about 4X4 with vinyl tile over wood upstairs.

Installing Ceramic tile over vinyl tile


Hi and welcome to the forum.

I'm glad to see you found the proper place to ask your question.

The pros will be along shortly with helpful answers to your question, although if it were me, I'd remove the vinyl before starting.

Agreed!

Installing ceramic tile over any previous floor covering is poo-poohed by the industry.

Not that much tile to remove.

I agree----Peal off the old tile and underlayment(usually 1/4" ply wood) and start fresh.--Mike---
