Laying carpet over brand new tile

Hi Guys,

I am in Houston and I have a small problem. There was a miscommunication and my tile guy installed tile in all of the 3 bedrooms upstairs. I would like to have carpet put in.

I have two options.

1)Have my tile guy rip out all the new tile in the rooms and then have the carpet installer come out and lay carpet .


2)Have my carpet installer just use Chemrex CX-948 to install the tack strips on top of the tile.

I would love to know your thoughts on this !

Miscommunication?? That is an understatement. I would have questioned you three times, then asked your wife and kids if they wanted tile in bedrooms before I would have laid it. Either method will work, door #1 is a lot more work.

Minor point to prevent frustration in that Chemrex has changed its name and packaging. Here is the updated infor for your files.

Ask your installer about using the PAM glue. It might be cheaper.
