I have a friend who does commercial remodeling. He does lots of tile work in restaurants. One of his clients approached him about retiling a walkin freezer. Of course he said they could not turn it off.

I realize the inherent problems that seem to make this impossible, but I am not a flooring expert. So I turn to those who are, is there any way to do this?

I was involved in a large mud job when I was a teenager, they did two large coolers with Ceramic, I mostly just lugged and mixed the mud. I'd suspect that any technique that's approved for an outdoor setting in the North would be ok.

I imagine this should be used with Epoxy, Epoxy, Epoxy?


Would it be possible to work on small sections of the floor each night ( work window is from 3AM to 9AM) and use some sort of heat source to keep the adhesive and grout warm until they set?

I have heard the Laticrete commercial epoxy grout sets within hours if it is warm enough.


I spent some time reading and searching over at the JohnBridge forum. It is excellent but the only thing I found on this subject was that everyone there despises restraunt tile work. (understandably it would seem)
