I have 2 different types of tile throughout my house and would like to concrete over it. Will the concrete adhere to these tiles without sanding or is sanding a must?

    Sanding is definitely a must. Also use a latex modified cement mix or a latex bonding compound and regular cement mix.

      Thanks William. And may I asj another question...can I mix color into the concrete I would rather do that then paint it.

    Yes you can mix color into the concrete. There are specific dyes for concrete. You also can paint it after it hardens and cures. Just put in "paint concrete" in the search bar and you can see what other Hometalkers did.
