Answer: 
you cannot lay new tile over old without using a self levelor product over the old tile or scuffing the old tile for adhesion. Or you can do some real work by removing the old tile.

This tile adhesive will NOT work well when applied to an existing tile floor. Yes, it can be used with self-adhesive tiles and it works quite well when the bonding capabilities of the self-adhesive tile alone is insufficient. However, as I stated in my opening sentence, it will not work well when applying self-adhesive tiles over existing vinyl tiles. My recommendations are to either remove the existing floor tile so you have a good beginning point for a proper tile installation or apply a thin layer of sub-floor over the existing vinyl tile to allow for a surface better suited to apply self-adhesive tiles (with or without the tile adhesive).

Use "Goo-Gone", but DO NOT spray or poor the goo-gone directly on the tile or floor. Lightly spray or dab a clean cloth or heavy duty paper towel and then lightly rub the area that has tile adhesive on it.

Use "Goo-Gone", but DO NOT spray or poor the goo-gone directly on the tile or floor.

Remember this, Goo-Gone can remove tile adhesive so you MOST certainly DO NOT want to soak the floor with it because if it gets underneath the tile it will ruin the tile adhesive which is currently bonding the tile to your floor. Less is more when using Goo-Gone and NEVER apply it directly to the floor, use a clean cloth or heavy duty paper towel with very small amounts of Goo-Gone on it. As you remove the adhesive frequently switch to a clean unused section of the cloth/paper towel to avoid smearing the very adhesive you are removing back onto the tile. Read Less

Answer: 
While it is wet, use hot, soapy water. We kept a wet rag next to us while we were laying the tile and it worked pretty good. It is inevitable that you will end up with some dried residue, as the adhesive has a tendency to seep before drying. A little mineral spirits on a rag will soften and remove this residue. Be sure to dispose of the used rag in a metal container.

Answer: 
If you use a 1/16 x 1/32 x 1/32 "U" notch VCT or VET trowel, on a level not overly porous surface, the approximate coverage is 225 to 250 square feet of coverage. The exact coverage varies greatly depending on variables such as, the type and size of the notch of the trowel, the surface being applied to (i.e. very porous surface, uneven surface, concrete, lauan, etc.), and the thickness and evenness of Read More

The exact coverage varies greatly depending on variables such as, the type and size of the notch of the trowel, the surface being applied to (i.e. very porous surface, uneven surface, concrete, lauan, etc.), and the thickness and evenness of application. Generally, if the adhesive is applied evenly with a 1/16 x 1/32 x 1/32 "U" notch trowel on a fairly level and not overly porous surface you will achieve the coverage range indicated above.

Answer: 
Andy-
Depending on the trowel you are using will determine the coverage of square feet per gallon. I have attached a picture to show the square footage per gallon by flooring type and trowel size. I hope this helps, should you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you for choosing Roberts!
