    Just bought a 2 storey home in santo domingo.
    The floor of the living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom has approx. 100 square meters of granite and i want to change this granite floor in porcelanato floor. Can someone recommend me a constructor in Santo domingo who can install these floors professionally and "cheap".

    Green Man Designs - Jose Reyes - reyesmalla@gmail.com But remember "professional" and "cheap" do not co-exist in the same sentence in the Dominican Republic without the word "not" in there somewhere. Believe me, you'd rather have it done right than cheap.

    many times an existing floor can be left in place and the new floor installed on top. This can make the job much cheaper, cleaner and faster. If there is good adhesion and you are just replacing to get a new look and not because of some structural need then a good latex-modified thinset will set the new floor no problem.
