I just purchased a home and the kitchen has radiant heated porcelain tile floor in the kitchen. The floor is in rough shape so Id like to redo it. This raises a number of questions.
should I try to keep the existing floor? and maybe restain it? its currently a terracotta color (it that an option)
would it be easier to just put another layer of tile over the existing floor? will the radiant heat still be effective?
Should I pull up the floor and put a whole new floor down? Im concerned that this will ruin the radiant flooring?
Additional info based on comments:
- it is hot water radiant heat
- it is over a basement with wood floor joists
- the house was built in 2000
Any and all comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
