Laying DuraCeramic tile


Can I lay the duraceramic tile on top of my existing vinyl tile or do I have to remove it and lay it on the plywood?

Laying DuraCeramic tile


remove the old tile. remove the old 1/4" luan if any divots or glue still exists on it. Anything uneven will transfer into the upper tiles. Install new luan, then the DuraCeramic.

Laying DuraCeramic tile


I used luan for years, but just remember it has voids between the layers that can collapse.
