How to glue the tile to the tile?

Putting the house in order is not only an important component of comfort and coziness, but today it is also a certain kind of creativity, with the help of which a person creates the atmosphere around him. But before you engage in creativity and inventing creative things to decorate your own home, of course, you should take care of its primary repair.

In the case of showers and bathrooms, a legitimate question arises - what about glueing tiles to tiles so that it lasts a sufficient amount of time. We will try to answer this question.

Surface preparation

  1. First of all, you need to check whether the old tile keeps well. To do this, you need to tap all the plots. If there is a dull sound indicating that the tile has moved away from the surface, it will be necessary to remove the tile and fill the empty space with the solution.
  2. Then you need to clean the old tile. To do this, use a grinder or sandpaper. You need to remove the top layer.Of course, this is a very laborious process, you can do without it, if time is precious to you, but in this case, a new tile will not last for a long time. So, the second and less successful option is to wet the tile in a special soap or soda solution. Soap solution can be prepared in boiling water with the addition of grated soap or simply with hot water from the tap.
  3. Tile, which will need to glue on the old surface, you need to soak in water.
  4. Coat the old surface for 3 hours with concrete or a primer for leveling.

Glue tiles

Glue the new tile on top of the old one using elastic glue, pre-leveling the surface.

It should be noted that other types of glue may not give the desired bonding effect. In addition to elastic glue, sometimes they talk about the use of glue for critical substrates with enhanced adhesive properties. It can be used as an alternative to elastic.
