Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks in advance, and for all the help you guys have provided to me over the years in previous posts!
Anyway, just bought a new house in Texas. It's a "stick-built" home, which is different than I'm used to. In South Florida, our homes are solid concrete.
So I have this bathroom on the second floor, and the floor is wood sheething, basically plywood over framing. I want to lay tile in this bathroom which currently has lenolium (sp?) on it. In my other house, it was no big deal, thinset on top of concrete and lay the tile. But here, I'm not sure I'm supposed to lay tile directly on the plywood. Is there something I'm supposed to put down first? What prevents the floor from flexing? I'm planning on going with larger tiles... 12"x24", but again, worried about cracking and movement. Is there some kind of harder wood that I can put down? Thankfully, the area isn't that big... 13 feet by 4 feet, and then another small area that is 6 feet by 4 feet.
Anyway... really appreciate any advice! Thank you!
