Can I install carpet over tile flooring?

Carpet flooring is an excellent choice for many rooms, with outstanding benefits that could serve you for up to 20 years. In most cases, carpet is installed over a subfloor, but this isn’t always the case.

Some homeowners ask if carpeting can be placed over an existing floor cover like tile flooring, and the answer is yes. But here are a few stipulations for getting the most out of this choice.

Carpet over tile

There are some critical points to cover before installing a carpet on top of tile flooring. First, it should be in good condition to receive carpet flooring, with no broken pieces or tiles that may be about to break loose and come off.

Next, we have to ensure that the grout lines are not so broad that they would cause uneven spaces. These areas might seem small, but they can cause uneven wear and other problems once carpeting has been in place for a while.

Further steps for a tile subfloor

It's also essential to choose an underlayment that will help make up for bits of uneven space in your tile. Some variations in the tile surface might not be visible, but our carpet store can tell you this can create issues over time if not taken care of properly.

Once you've installed carpet flooring, you won't be able to go back to a tile floor without some renovations. First, you must replace perimeter tiles and resurface some others.
