I am looking to replace my pool tiles and I have a contractor that wants to tile over the existing tiles. Is this any issue? He claims it is standard practice.
Thanks

This actually isn't something he should be doing, namely because tiles won't bond to a surface that is not cement. Bonding tile to tile doesn't work.
