Try using an adhesive remover like Jasco Adhesive Remover. You need to apply it on the sides of the tile you are having difficulty removing and wait for 15 minutes. It will soften the hard adhesive holding the tile and will make the job a lot easier.

Why is my dyson26 is scratching my wooden floors when brush is turned off?

The heads are designed to be used with the brush on hard floors. On the bottom of the brush head there are either Metal or plastic pads. If you use this on a tiled or hard floor without the brushes, these can wear and become sharp in places.. This scratches the floor!!

Where does the rubber membrane go when tiling a bathroom floor

tiles on wooden floors will always move and crack the grout/tiling cement
therefore the rubber membrane goes down first with out nails and then everything is laid on top
that way when the wooden floor moves , there is a water proof membrane to prevent the water from rotting the wood over time

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,
