just pull up the slate. If you go over the top, your tiles would not have an even surface to be glued to. Im no tiler, but i can imagine a couple of things being an issue - uneven surface causing uneven pressure on tiles as you walk on them, likley leading to cracking of tiles. Needing to use more glue to even this out, leading to uneven or unsightly floor transitions. You could do the demo yourself in a matter of an afternoon, a day at worst.

I have some existing slate in the kitchen area and I'm wondering if tilers are willing to tile over the top? Is that generally a done thing? Statistics: Posted by Vincent49 — Tue Apr 23, 2024 9:56 am ..read more

amazing_venice Hi all! We have the option for tiles or cat 1 laminate flooring with our builder. I really love timber floors, dislike tiles - so we thought we would take the laminate and use that while the kids are little and pull it up in 5-10yrs and replace with solid hardwood flooring. Guessing we'll save money as well as ripping up tiles can be expensive, and we didn't want to encroach on room/skirting height (no matter how small the difference) with flooring-over-tiles. The ranges available are though carpet court: Province Laminate Range: 8mm with a 15yr warranty (I think it's only ..read more

wyldey Hi Michelle We're looking at doing solid timber flooring up our straight staircase and across our top floor of our new build. Staircase is concrete, as is our upper floor slab. Been getting quotes and the main difference seems to be in the staircase cost. Seems some companies are quoting ply risers and self leveling compound while others simply do plywood to both treads and risers under the solid wood. I'm building with a reputable custom builder so would hope our stairs are already to Australian standard and pretty level. In your experience is self leveling compound really required ..read more

JacquiJS HI MIchelle, I hope you or your colleagues or others in this forum can help me. We built our house in 2002, and at the time we were advised NOT to glue our solid timber (Sydney blue gum) floors, but to nail only onto particle board. We have recently had an issue with our evaporative cooler malfunctioning, turning our house into something of a sauna, and some of the boards buckled & popped. Our insurer has rejected our claim because the boards weren’t glued as is today’s standard. Does anyone have any information or documents that can support us in our claim that the boards were ..read more

wyldey Hi Michelle I'd imagine engineered timber on a staircase would be a similar process with respect to getting the stairs level, etc. Would appreciate any insight your installers could provide. Thanks I haven't forgotten you, they guys have been a bit busy. I'll try and get one today. Michelle Statistics: Posted by Michelle — Wed Feb 14, 2024 6:28 am ..read more
