What surfaces can I tile onto?

With modern day adhesive technology it is possible to tile onto a lot of different surfaces. The secret is all about the preparation and using the correct adhesive. Even if the surface you want to tile onto is not ideal for tiling, you can overboard the surface with products like No More Ply to give you a perfect surface to tile onto.
