tile floors?

tile floors?

Answer:

This, or similar Q's are asked here often. I tile every day of my life, as well as respond to What can I do? If you absolutely refuse to remove the tile, and start from the beginning, you should assume you'll need to install a new substrtate for whatever NEW species of flooring you want, and that can be done OVER tile, but I'd refuse the job, if asked. A new substrate, depending on what that is, could allow you new tile, hardwood/laminate, carpet, etc. The process would be similar in any case, as you'd need to screw new substrate down, and likely miss grout lines often, unless you do some tedious planning. You'd have to remove cove base to replace later, BUT, in any case you'll lose approximately less than and inch in height from floor to ceiling, no matter what you choose to RE floor with.

you can put pergo over tile. It's a wood laminate floor, looks like hardwood. You can install it over tile because it's a floating floor, you dont nail it down. There are also other types of this flooring, same general applicaiton
