How to Install Laminate Flooring Over a Tile FloorBy: Danny Lipford
Can I install laminate flooring over a ceramic tile floor? – Dorothy
The short answer is yes, you can install laminate flooring over a ceramic tile floor, if the tile floor is in good condition, and the tile are well attached, level, and flat. The process would be the same as installing a laminate floor on a concrete slab.
However, if the existing ceramic tile floor isn’t flat and smooth, or if it has tile that are out of level or have a protruding corner, your laminate flooring will make you feel like you’re walking in a funhouse!
In that case, you can either opt to tear out all the tile and start from scratch, or use a leveling compound on top of the tile floor to even it out prior to installing the laminate.
Good luck with your project,
