Topic: Are there any problems in pasting tiles over an existing mosaic floor?

Now, the flooring of my house is mosaic. I want to lay vitrified tiles instead. One contractor assures me that the tiles can be pasted over the current flooring. The height of the doors might have to be reduced by a few cms. Another contractor says that it is better to break the current floor and then lay the tiles. According to the second contractor, pasting of tiles can cause problems in evenness of flooring. 

Any suggestions?

sunil ji,

you are advised that finishing layer of mosaic topping should be dismantled totally and a leveled rough surface for pasting vitrified tiles should be prepared. Then a neat cement layer should be applied before fixing tiles so that it may have proper grip with the base floor and after some time tiles may not give hollow space sound. with this you also may save cutting of existing doors.

thanx.

No probs as long as the mosiac floor is even without sinks in the surface. Pasting Tiles over Mosaic saves a lot of labor, money and frustrations especially when u r renovating an already living place. Just make sure the adhesive is lavishly used on the whole surface beneath the tile. Use 2-3mm spacers for better results in surface evenness. Most Contractors refuse to use adhesive as they lose the job/money contract for breaking the existing floor and then formatting it. If ur mosaic floor is even then u'll get a even tile floor.

Breaking and re-doing a living space can be a resentful thing to do both money wise and time wise. Also the place is sure to become a mess and u will end up with an additional painting job too!

Time for a break n lay work-7-10 days.
Time for a pasting job-1-2 days.

PS-Pasting tiles on the wall is a diff story and needs a lot of precaution unlike floor tiles.
