I am buying a house with radiant hydronic floor heating. Can I put hardwood or engineered hardwood directly on top of the existing floor?

The floor is covered with an ugly green terazzo tile. Can I put hardwood or engineered hardwood directly on top ot the tile or do I need to risk damaging the heating by tearing the tile up?

John,

Depending on the age of the home, a typical hydronic heat system is embedded within 1.5” to 4” of gypcrete or concrete.

Also, terrazzo is not usually installed as a tile....
