Back splash on vinyl

Suzanne SpenceRoseJoy30150932


I wish to put up a new back splash on a previous on but it is from the 1970s and it is from the counter top material. Can I just put something on it or do I need to rip it off first? thanks

    If the laminate is stable, solid, stuck on real good, and not peeling you can tile over it with no problem. Use tile mastic adhesive and not thinset. Thinset is cement based and won't adhere properly to the laminate.

    You can buy paint that will cover tiled splashes. If you want to put something on top, you will need to rough up the tile a bit so that whatever you use adheres to the old surface.

    You can clean it very well use wonderbond and attach tile then grout or buy some of the self sticking tiles and grout

    Rubber cement then sheet melt , leave un polished or have it polished . it bond in astant and it is easy to clean, have it in my 5th wheel. good luck
