I would like to install ceramic tile on top of my existing patio slab. The
slab has a few non-structural cracks.
Over the years, the slab has been painted several times. The paint is in
good condition. Can I get away with laying the tile on top of the painted
slab? Will the thinset permanently adhere to the paint?
Of course, it would be better to remove the paint but it looks like a major
operation: 11'x 50'. How would one go about removing several layers of paint
from the concrete pad?
Thanks for any help.
