Hi, Can anyone advise how best to or whether it is OK to lay cermaic floor tiles over vinyl tiles. Looking through the forum some say it's OK whilst other suggest removing which I think will be very hard to do. The floor in question is a kitchen floor and the tiles are "extremely" well stuck down, being down I believe for some 7 years with non being loose or damaged.

If it is OK to do this what would be the recommend adhesive to use and what prepartion is required.

Previoulsy, when I have done wall tiling, I have always used 'ready mixed' opting for Weber which I had no porblems however, reading through the forum it appears that ready mixed for floor tiles isn't usually recommend.

Any advice would be much appreciated..

Thanks in advanced, Mike :innocent:
