This^^^^^........Tile is almost impossible to get it to look good after painting. It CAN be done with a bonding primer and topcoats of your choice. The thing is painted tile looks like painted tile, and, by that, I mean it just never looks quite right.the amount of time and money your going to spend on the high performance paint you will need to get a finish that wont jump off the tiles at the slightest ding or increase in moisture will definitely be the same if not more then tearing the tile off and putting up new tile.
and think if you screw the painting up! all that wasted!
Okay if you say so.It can be done and it can be done succesfully, but you need the knowledge and right products. We use products for applications like this from Midwest Chemicals.
Sounds like you havnt had succes with tile or used Midwest Chemicalsthere are also other systems that would work too nowdays practically anything can be painted or stained. Just because your a professional tile installer dose not mean that your a pro in the coatings industry, that would be like me giving advice to you on how to install tile. I know how to and have done it, but I don't specialize in that industry.Okay if you say so.
This is one of those gimmics that have proven to be snakeoil remedies for crappy looking tubs and tile walls. But okay if you say so. It doesn't work, it doesn't last, it doesn't resist cleaning chemicals, it scratches, it pimples, it fish-eyes, it looks rediculous when applied but okay, go for it.
No not at all.Sounds like you havnt had succes with tile or used Midwest Chemicalsthere are also other systems that would work too nowdays practically anything can be painted or stained.
