Tile over Marble?

I have a Fireplace Hearth with marble. Can I put ceramic tile over top of the marble?
Thanks

No, Martha Stewart will be PO'd if you cover the marble.

Yes you can but you must prep the Marble first to accept the adhesive. I would use adheasive instead of thinset simply for bonding reasons I believe the adheasive would make a better bond witht the marble surface. Ofcourse if the fireplace is used I would be sure to check the manufactures comments on heat. If you go with a cement product (thinset) I would strongly suggest after etching the marble surface applying a bonding agent to the marble priror to putting it on. This product can be obtained at any Lowes or Home Depot and is generally refered to as "concrete bonding adheasive" it looks and smells exactly like elmers glue. Keep in mind if you do not etch (scratch) that surface espically with the heat of the fireplace you will have bonding issues. Joey T wrote:
