Tiling over Existing Tile?

Answer

It is possible to tile over existing floor tiles. Tiling on other tiles is actually easier as the existing tiles have already created a flat surface to tile on; however, you should make sure the original tiles are firm. It is not advisable to tile over wall tiles because they might drop off due to the extra weight.

You can tile over existing tiles but it is highly advisable to remove old tiles before tiling. When tiling over old ones, ensure that you clean them and remove all the grease as well as any other contaminants.
