Also question is, can you put new tile over old?
If your old ceramic tile is worn or dated,you can lay new tile right over theold, and avoid the huge job of tearing out the oldtile. This assumes that the floor underneath is solid(concrete) and that there are no cracks in the existing tile(indicating underlying problems in the concrete).
Also, can you put a backsplash over laminate? It's possible to tile over a plastic laminatebacksplash if the backsplash has square, rather thanmolded or rounded, edges. Sand the plastic laminate withcoarse (50-80 grit) sandpaper, so the tile adhesive willadhere to it. An orbital sander works great for this, but becareful not to damage the countertop or wall.
Moreover, can peel and stick backsplash go over tile?
You can install peel and stick SmartTiles directly over your existing backsplash,whether it is glass or ceramic provided that your surface issmooth, sleek and without texture. You must also take intoconsideration the width and depth of your existing grout lines asthis might affect the outcome.
Is tiling over tiles a good idea?
So, in short, you can tile over tile as long asyou're working on a fairly sound surface. The surface of theexisting tile should be uncompromised by mold or mildew,completely level (including grout), and without any warping orstrangely-placed tiles that might otherwise interfere with asmooth new layer.
