I am planning to renovate my floor with vitried tiles. Contractor is suggesting that it is better to break the existing mosaic floor and then relay the tiles to achieve better stability. Some are syaing that it is fine to lay vitried tiles over existing mosaic floor with god adhesive with the only loss being the hight of room will reduce by an inch or so.. i have time and empty house for the work . what is better?

You should made floor rough by chilling and than fix the vetrified tiles with good quality adhessive. Care should be taken that before laying the tiles surface should be clean.

You should made floor rough by chilling, clean with wire
brush than do final cleaning, and than fix the vitrified tiles with good
quality adhesive. Care should be taken that
before laying the tiles surface should be clean.In this process you have
to cut door shutter to reduce the shutter size according to floor
height. In past 10 years in govt. building 90% marble floor replace by ceramic tiles by using this method.
