Quarry Tile To Quarry Tile


I have a restaurant that wants me to attach another layer of quarry tile on top of an existing tile (speed bumb) so the carts stop banging in to the walls.

I thought if I grind notches in the exsiting tile I mite get the new tile to stick.

any thoughts on this would be helpfull

I've done it before in commercial kitchens. Steam clean/degrease the existing floor first and you should be just fine. Thinset on tile is approved.

AND I AGREE THAT IT SHOULD BE CLEANED THOROUGHLY..
EPOXY PRIMER HELPS TREMENDOUSLY.. AFTER THE CLEANING..
BUT THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION, I WOULD CHECK WITH DAL-TILE FIRST. OR SOMEONE WHO KNOWS FOR SURE. WE USE EPOXY PRIMER FOR INSTALLING ALL TYPES OF FLOORING OVER MANY OTHER HARD SURFACES TO HELP WITH THE BONDING.
GOOD LUCK

Also check and make sure ALL the existing tiles are not loose.

Re: Quarry Tile To Quarry Tile


I was searching info on quarry tile for commercial kitchen and cam eacross your thread. I might have the opportunity to bid a quarry project. The exisiting area is VCT. What is your take on installing quarry tile over VCT. STEam Clean or floor stripper first, rinse, primer thinset(Ultra flex 2 Mapei) then tile, then grout(3/16)
