Can carpet be installed over tile floors?

Some floor coverings can be installed over well-prepared subflooring, while other materials can be installed on top of existing floors with the same great results. Today, we’re going to talk about whether carpet can be installed over tile floors, so read along to find out more about our installation services today.

We provide installation services you need

Installing carpet over existing tile flooring is possible and mimics the installation as if you were laying carpet over concrete. The same steps are followed, and the carpeting is nailed down at the grout line nearest the wall on all four sides.

But before that can happen, we must ensure all the tiles are in good condition, with no broken pieces, and that all the grout work is sound. You will also need to add a moisture barrier to protect both carpet and tile alike.

It's also important to remember that when you lay one floor over another, significantly when a carpet is involved, you raise the flooring level, affecting doorways and baseboards. Therefore, specific alterations will likely need to happen, so be sure to discuss this with your installation team before beginning.
