How To Prepare Tiled Floor For Re-Tiling

How do you properly prepare an already tiled floor for new floor tiles?

Well, personally I don’t. However, last summer I had a tile company come and install the oversized 24 inch by 24 inch porcelain floor tiles in our front hallway and adjoining laundry room.

Here is a picture or two of the starting point. The front hallway already had 23 year old original floor tile which came with the house.
