I've got a couple of bathrooms that currently have way ugly, large
12x12 ceramic tile on the floor. They're vitreous, but not shiny
glazed and are not completely smooth. They are sound, stable, and
uncracked. I want to put sheet vinyl in, but I really don't want to
rip out everything down to the subfloor and build up from there.
My plan is to clean the hell out of the tiles, skim some cement
patching & fnishing compound over them with a long straightedge, and
then glue the vinyl over that.
1. Am I crazy? Will this work?
2. Will the cement stain through the new vinyl?
3. What sort of glue should I use, and how should it be put on?
