Topic: Brick tile flooring

Dear Sir,

I am constructing a room on the 2nd floor(terrace) of my house.
The terrace already have a brick tile flooring with soil layer underneath it.

Please guide me if I need to remove this flooring lying before marble or tiles flooring.
Also tell me if i can use PVC flooring on top of this brick tile flooring.

And if yes then what could be the drawbacks of doing so in future.

Regards

Post subject: Remove the Tile flooring and Soil

Hi Vinay,

The Flooring can be done above it but it may reduce the height of the floor by 3-4 inches. The tile flooring can be done above it by using chemical or applying a new layer of plaster above the brick tile flooring. The marble flooring can be done in the same manner but the best would be after removing the Bricks. the PVC flooring can be done easily above it.

Thank you very much jai, its really helpful... I think i will  go for the PVC flooring in the open area of my terrace... I think it will be cost effective as well as future proof( in case i decide to cover the open area after 4-5  years. Thanks again.
