      Is this considered pumbing related? Anyway, I am about to lay some tile. I took up all the old squares and there is a glue residue on the floor. Before I lay the new tile, do I need to get this up, or can I pour the new glue over it?

      Hi, My friend was to have her floor tiled all week long and the tile man keeps putting her off. Her floor is all prepared for this job. She thinks it will not be difficult to do, she asked me for my help to lay the tile. WE DO NOT KNOW HOW!! Can you possibly tell me how to go about it. She is starting tomorrow regardless. Please reply soon!Thanks, Natalie

      From my experience, no you dont have to remove all the old mastic, as long as it is still bonded to your subfloor. Unless it is loose or peeling it can be left there. : Is this considered pumbing related? Anyway, I am about to lay some tile. I took up all the old squares and there is a glue residue on the floor.

      You dont say what kind of tile you are installing, but if it is vinyl and the old cement has large ridges in it, you may want to at least sand it down so the ridges do not transfer through the tile and give it a wavy look.: Is this considered pumbing related?
