Beware, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it; and many do it the wrong way. A lot of the cost is in the prep many companies skip this to save money. Doing it the wrong way is like throwing money away. The old surface needs to be undercut around all the tile, main drains, returns, and light fixtures. This helps blend in the thickness of the old surface and the new surface. The most important is the bond coating between the old surface and the new surface this prevents the new surface from peeling up or chipping up after a short amount of time.
