Tiles are a necessary part of home décor. The colour and pattern of the flooring tile in the living room can add an element of elegance and warmth. Larger tiles, which imply minimum joints, give an impression of larger space. Also, when it comes to the kitchen or bathrooms, one can play around with different tile patterns, colours, and even murals to get the right vibe for the room – whether sedate or funky!

The good thing about tiles is that they are long lasting and if they are laid well with the right products then they could even last a lifetime. However, we humans crave change and after a few years the same tiles and décor can begin to look jaded. You may even decide to go in for a change of furniture and the colour scheme of your tiles may just not match the new look you have planned for your home. So, retiling is a good way to get a home makeover and it doesn't have to take forever and make a mess if you opt for a tile-on-tile application.

Tiling Woes

Very often home owners are averse to having a change in tiles. That's because the conventional method of changing tiles is to break and remove the old tiles and then again lay in the new tiles. This could also result in some amount of damage to the walls of the room and could even require a new coat of paint and wallpaper. Earlier contractors would advise against affixing tile on tile as there were chances of slippage.

The Easy Option

However, thanks to new age products like the Roff Non-Skid Adhesive, due to which tile-on-tile applications have become so very easy and secure. The Roff Non-Skid Adhesive is a blended polymer modified cement based powder tile adhesive and it forms a waterproof barrier between two surfaces and has excellent 'grab' properties. So, now you don't have to spend days having old tiles noisily removed and new one laid out and be out of living space for a long time. The tile-on-tile application involves much less time and definitely less mess. Using good products to fix the tiles further eases your worries about the longevity of your tile makeover.

So, you no longer have to live with tiles that are 'dated' or are looking worn out. Give your floors and walls a quick makeover by just placing the new tiles over the old ones – no mess, no fuss!

Points to Remember:

  • If any of the original tiles are loose make sure they are reinstalled before retiling.
  • Stagger the joints; no new joint should be over an old one
  • Make sure the original tiles are clean and remove any loose or moldy grout
  • Ideally the original tiles should be sanded to remove any surface glaze
