  • Is it OK to put ceramic over vinyl glued to cement?

    I've had a floating floor over home's original vinyl, glued to new cement slab. Which seems tightly secure after 20 years. Is it going to be risky to do ceramic directly onto the vinyl?

    In my opinion, I don't recommend installing ceramic tile directly over vinyl flooring, even if it is glued to cement and seems secure. The vinyl may not provide the stable, rigid base needed for the ceramic tiles, leading to potential issues with adhesion and stability over time. It's better to remove the old vinyl before installing the ceramic tiles. Still, if you are not ready to remove it, alternatively you can install a cement backer board over it to provide a solid, stable base.
