Hi,
I have a job to tile a floor & put underfloor electric mat heating 200w/m.
The customer has carpet on the floor but unknown to me there were vinyl tiles hiding underneath. I contacted Bal & Laybond who both said i had to strip the vinyls & the adhesive, however Weber said it was safe to tile directly over espescially as i am putting down 6mm insulation from uheat first using rapidset flexi, then ufh set in 6mm latex followed by rapidset flexi & porcelain tiles. The alternative is to strip & latex over the adhesive, an extra job I know the customer doesnt want to pay for. has anyone any advice on leaving down the vinyl tiles (concrete floor underneath):8:
Thanks
