Priming old Tiles Before Tiling Over Them?

by Barrysh » Thu Jan 24, 2019 12:48 pm

Hi, I am going to my son's house for a weekend to retile part of his bathroom. As it's a couple of hundred miles away I don't really have the time to take the old tiles off. Is it necessary to prime the surface of the old tiles and if so could someone recommend a product. Think there is about 4 sq yds to do. Could I just scour the glazed surface with a wire brush in a drill or a sander. Really want to crack on when I get there not have to wait for primer to dry. Not looking for a professional job, just trying to tart up his first house on a budget. Thanks
