DekTek Tile Over Existing Concrete
DekTek Tile can be applied directly over existing concrete if the concrete is in decent condition (See ALT. for concrete that is in bad condition).
- First seal the tiles (top only). This will keep the grout from discoloring the tile when grouting. See “Sealer page” for instructions on sealing.
- Use Thinset or outdoor construction adhesive to attach to concrete.
- Grout tile joints with cementitious grout.
- After grout cures, reseal tile to include grout joints.
*If concrete has cracks less than 1/8” wide, treat them with anti-fracture membrane (available in most tile stores) before setting tile.*
