There should be a conduit that the cable runs through. If you tie one end of the wires together and ohms out the other end it will tell you if you have an open circuit. If you don't have a conduit, you can find it by some type of metal detector or stud finder.

I have a 20x24 sqft garage if i want to by floor tiles that are 18,5 inches how many do i need to buy to cover my whole floor

The least amount is 202 tiles, assuming you use all the scraps, and break none. I would get at least 10 more to be safe and have replacements in case something happens to one.

How do I break up old bath room tiles

The common method is to use a small electric demolition hammer, like this

They can be easily hired if you are in a city. You can get various points for it, from spear to wide chisel.

If laying more tiles after, keep the undersurface as level as you can. Wear ear and eye protection. If your hands start to tingle while using the hammer, take a break.

There is a machine the pros use too, a power scraper

Which flooring is best for commercial space like gym or sports field. Is there any provider in Kansas city?

Having been in the flooring installation end of the business for over 20 years have you considered rubber mat flooring. It is about an inch thick and has interlocking tabs. Maybe I can find a hyper link.

Additionally on the market is a vinyl carpet tile...carpet on top....vinyl on the bottom...with a thin dense done inbetween
This is a very popular choice due to the ease of installation...using a peel and stick glue. It allows you to adhere the carpet tile to the floor and if future stains or issues arise you can take the carpet tile up and replace it. Very comfortable under foot....used on many commercial applications and now available at retail outlets like LOWES and home depot

Search the web for carpet tile...and releaseable adhesive for carpet tile.

You can compare prices vs wood, but I would not choose a wood floor personally.

How do I fix a cracked ceramic tile

I would try breaking the tile up with hammer instead of prying from side, as you maybe chip or crack adjoining tiles. This method should work fine, you may loosen surrounding tiles but just re-mortar any tiles that may become loose. Wear eye protection. Good luck

My apprentice used grout, intead of thinset to bond 250 sq ft of quarry tile to concrete. Is there a away to fix it? without pulling all the tile?

Grout is a non-adhesive concrete material that is made with sand and cement, with colorants added.

Grout will not adhere tile to any surface

The good news (if that's possible) is that the tile should be fairly easy to remove, and the grout will be fairly easy to scrape off the floor. Break one tile out of the way, and see if the others can be pried up easily.

Looks like you have to start over, sorry for that.

I was a contractor for 30 years >>> we laid tile for about 2 years and then shifted to other trades >>> I know from experience that the big disasters become great stories a few years later >> every contractor has those stories.

Let us know how it comes out.

Can ceramic tile be installed over old ceramic tile?

You can install tile over tile. However here are the risks. The new tiles will require at least 3/16" of tile adhesive UNDER the tiles when put in place after they have been pressed into position. Additionally the trim around the tiles willhave to be removed and elevated the distance of the tile thickness and the 3/16" grout distance. The tiles if on the second floor of a home will easily losen due to the expansion and contraction of the home and the difference in the 2 types of tiles expansion and contraction rates.

It is not difficult to remove old tiles. You use a flat bar type scraping tool and the old tiles usually will pop right up off the floor. You will have to break maybe 2 tiles to get started but after that they are easy to remove.

My experience in my own fully tiled in all rooms 2900 sq ft home in the tropics is that I have to remove the old tiles as over time the new tiles losen on top of the old tiles. I have tried it several times and have had at least 1 tile come loose each time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

When it is running it moves a lot on the tile floor we have it on. What is the best way to stop it from moving? It is a GE Profile washing machine

You will need to replace the rubber straps. There is one one each conner, just under the top. If you push the tub over to one side and run your hand under the top and feel. You will find a rubber strap that connects from under the top to the outer tub. These are bad to break. You need to replace the broken ones before you use the machine again. These keep the outer tub from banging into the inside of the machine causing it to break and leak. When this happens, the tub list for around $160.00 and it take about two hours to replace it. It's cheaper to buy a new machine it the tub breaks. GE's are known for this problem.
