Many manufactured tiles are poorly made and will not hold up to the uses they are marketed for. Of course there are many quite excellent manufactured tiles too so you need to inquire to be sure. That information however may or not be readily available. The kind of ornamentation of the ceramic tile is important too. For a ceramic countertop or tabletop the tiles should be flat. For a backsplash the tiles can have low relief but high relief will be difficult to clean and is not generally advised. Fireplaces murals mosaics and facades can be either flat have low relief or high relief and low fire glazes are OK in these applications.

All the cracks and holes need to be repaired and filled in before your ceramic tile installation can start. Once your start working on your project each of your ceramic individual tiles will be bonded directly to the concrete floor. If the cracks widen this will affect your tiles as well.

Otherwise it would be unwise to do a ceramic tile installation on wood. c. An existing ceramic tile floor. Ceramic tile floors would more often than not require the new room occupant to remodel. There are two options for remodeling an existing tile floor: One leave the tile floor in place and work your ceramic tile installation directly over it; or two remove the old tiles.
