    Yes you can lay your tile on the cement, put down a layer of thin set, trowel it out not leaving any gaps and bed your tile.

    You can tile directly over it. If the concrete has had a sealer or paint on it then you need to rough up the surface first.

    yes you can, but make sure that there is no moisture problems(floor gets moist) and no settling issues such as large cracks etc. if there is, find out what is causing these issues first, correct them, and then lay the tile, if no problems, then have a great time and be proud of being a helpful son.

    Hi Tammy,
    Here’s a few great links to options for vapor management over floors such as your dad’s basement, as well pictures of tile installations to help give you an idea of how it’s done by the pros.

    You will need to put a moisture barrier down.
    The product you need to use is called RedGuard.
    You can get it @ the home depot.
    It looks pink when wet. When dry it will turn red.
    Just follow the instructions and you will be fine.
    If you don’t do this you will take the chance that your tile will come up later.
