Tile over tile – affordable alternative

Leave a comment

Less down-time for building owners and occupants, less dust, less noise, and reduced demolition costs can be achieved by installing new tile over existing, well-bonded tile.
When existing tile needs an update or ‘facelift’ and is not cracking or chipping, it can often be overhauled with a completely new look by running tile on top of the existing tile. Even with the additional preparation needed, the savings realized by excluding demolition and removal of the existing tile in a commercial installation can be 2/3 the cost of a traditional demo and removal.
This cost-saving alternative involves consideration of: the height increase of transitions into the tiled area (generally, an increase by the thickness of the new tile); any ‘cap’ or trim pieces that may have to be transitioned in a different way; and the capability of the tile installers.
When the work is performed with expertise, the end result can be a beautiful, and more affordable alternative.
