You need to have all the equipment and goods. The tiles, cement to fix them, the cutter, a level, a rubber hammer, a marshy, a water drum, and paper.
1. use the paper to cover all the area that may be damage.
2. level the surface
3. put the title in the level floor, without pasting them, and measure the titles you need to cut, to fix all the are, measure and align them.
4.with the marshy apply the cement to the area

Can plywood be glued to tile floor before laying vinyl planks ??


There are cement based compounds on the market that will allow you to just go over top of your tile floor. Make sure your tile floor is not loose anywhere, clean the floor well and use a patching compound over the existing tiles (this will fill in the grout lines and any uneven areas of the tile). It may take a couple of coats, maybe even 3 to get the floor smooth and level. You should be able to install your vinyl right on top of this and not have the added height of the plywood. If you insist on the plywood you could use a good quality construction adhesive with drilling and installing screws.

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.

Vinyl flooring is very durable depending on how it is installed. If they are individual pieces that have have glue on the back then i would say no. I have found that Pergo is more durable and has a nicer scratch resistance but can be a little more expensive. Talk with your local Home Depot flooring professionals and let them know your concerns.

Hope this helps.

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,

There is a tile backer, kinda of like fiberglass mesh, I have also seen a waffle looking plastic, that will go down over the crack in the floor and will not effect the tile one bit. You just tile over everything, no mastic, no set under this stuff, no fasteners, just tile over it like a normal floor, and the best part is, no crack! Hope this helps.

Toilet on uneven floor


I believe that I qualify... over 300 toilets installed in the past 15 months!!

I would go with the wax rings... but I would press the ring into the base of the toilet before installing the toilet....that way you are sure to have a good seal to the toilet....

If you actually read the directions, the manufacturer will tell you to press the wax ring onto the toilet....then install it onto the floor drain.
I guess that a PLAIN wax ring placed on the floor drain (since it is recessed) before placing the rubber-sleeve equipped ringed toiled is a good safety measure... I have done that an it work about 37 times out of 40.

Good question - BTW.. and well worded. THANKS for being specific and precise!!
