    I have "tiled over tiles" 3 times in 8 years here.. and not 1 tile has come loose. Simple prep, overlap system of laying them. You lose 1 inch of door height only. PM me here if you want me to come look and give my 2bits worth.. Gerry 09082117077

    Thats really great gerry. So you are saying your system is gonna fix Jack's tiles which have already become loose? If so then you have the "best answer"

    Jerry, your solution sounds very good. Can you let me know if there is an afternoon you will be in the Bacong area ( I live in barangay Lutao). I know you are probably busy prepping your new place. Thanks

    As you are in the UK I can understand the logic of your answer. In UK, there may be just one bad spot in the floor and all the rest are well attached.

    So this is Philippines. Some of the tiles laid in Jack's house have already come loose within a few years. What are the chances that the "professional tile layer", who put down all the tiles, got them all done correctly except for those few that are loose? I can tell you I would not put any money on that bet but it may be the case.

    Gerry undoubtedly does it right, either by doing it himself or personally supervising the workers, so he can overlay existing tiles. We don't know who put down Jack's tiles or how good a job they did. So with the cheap cost of labor (labour) here, why not get them all pulled off and do it right this time?

In Addition we live very near each other and I will help him organise the repair with workers that have helped me for 6years if thats required...
