    Hello, I plan to tile our hall floor but the concrete floor has thick black coating on top (bitumen, screed?) It's a 1960's property and all the floors have this.

    Do I simply add adhesive and tile or would this floor require something else before this?

    Many thanks

    Make sure it's mostly level.

    Prime it.

    Then tile it


    Any unevenness should be taken out by the tile adhesive and levelling of said tile
