    Exclamation tiling on magnesite flooring

    Hi

    I have just bought a flat and when I removed the carpet I discovered that the slab has been recovered with Magnesite

    Can I tile over it or do i need to remove it all?...I am getting mixed answers.

    thanks for your help

    You should have no problems provided it is in good condition, used as fire retardant, just chip away in a small area that can be easily filled to see it's secured well to the floor and has no major crazing.

    Good luck.

    go around the whole floor tapping it , checking for hollow drummy sounds. if nothing then its okay to lay on, make sure you use a suitable adhesive.
