    Natural Stone Tile over Limestone or remove and start again

    My bathroom currently has Limestone which was laid on marmox, we are now thinking of replacing with ceramic tiles. Tile shop says ok just to tile over it. This would save loads of work and it all seems secure. So, crack on and tile over or remove back to wall and apply new backer board? Cheers
