My Concrete Had VCT Tiles On It – Can They Be Removed and Acid Stain Be Used?
In a word, yes. Hooray!
The glue left by the tiles will have to be thoroughly removed, but this is nothing a qualified stone care professional can’t do for you.
However, it’s important to realize that there will probably be an outline of the tiles left even after proper and thorough cleaning. Many people turn this to their advantage by making their concrete finish even more unique. If you leave this ghosting outline and acid-stain the concrete, you will have a result similar in appearance to marble tiles.
If you don’t want the outline of the tiles, a microtopping may be needed. A microtopping is basically a thin concrete veneer applied to the floor that creates a fresh “canvas” to work with.
