Hi, I have some slate tiles to lay in my daughters kitchen, about 24mtrs. The floor is currently covered with old vinyl tiles, which are stuck pretty firm. I did get a couple up, and underneath those are the old dark brown tiles that councils used to lay. What's the best way forward? Will I be able to lay on top of the old vinyl tiles if I clean them? Would I need to do anything else to them, or is it best to try to get them up? If I did that, would I need to clean off all the old adhesive? Then what about the dark brown tiles?
[quote="welsh brickie"]rip up all the loose bits you can.Then pva the entire floor and let it set.Then lay a latex self level compound on the floor,then when its dried completly, your ready to tile.[/quote]
Thanks for the advice. Should I dilute the PVA or use it neat?
