hi everyone. Am I able to tile over customers hallway , original (old ) parquet flooring if I sand with a 40 grit mechanical sander , hoover up so dust free , apply an sbr / tiling primer , and bond an uncoupling membrane ie; durabase ci onto it using flexi rapid set addy . Would this be an ok and professional method ? Has any one else done this ? Many thanks in advance. Steve ( professional tiler for 15 years but never had this situation)

Just thought I’d put the question out there . But I don’t think i would be 100% convinced it would work with nmp or un coupling mat . So am now quoting for taking up parquet floor (22 ish mm) and replacing with levelling compound , leaving a day then tiling onto that . Nice n solid and would be confident in that working ok .

Put 50mm marmox boards down or what ever the thickness of the parquet is.
Will probably work out more cost effective...

Thanks Julian , but I wouldn’t want to mechanically fix orbry or Marmox boards to parquet floor with screws n washers as I feel this would dislodge and loosen the parquet pieces . ..Andy are you suggesting I remove parquet and fix the marmox boards down using jst a solid bed flexi adhesive ? With no need to mechanical fix ? Bringing back up to original height and then to tile onto . Regards , Steve

Yes...
Remove the parquet, seal the black tar crap with a slurry coat, or suitable primer, fix marmox boards down with flexible adhesive.
They come in thickness from 6mm to 50mm..
