bathroom subfloor (Basement)


I'm not here to argue with you. If you think you have the answer then go for it. You guys come here for advice because you don't know what the hell you are doing and when you get that advice you want to argue about it. So do it your way. I told you I have a solution and you just skimmed right over that comment so have it your way.

I said I'm a carpenter a long time ago, not a tile guy. I am asking why a ramset and hardiboard won.t work and nobody will tell me why.

Same problem. You could try Snapstone, it comes with its own urethane grout but I would be more comfortable with the tile adhered to the substrate. But then, the major issue is the substrate.

I still have a suggestion, wanna hear it?
well I did ask for suggestions, was waiting for one and if it's dont do it

Yeah. Just publish your phone number so others won't interfere with the project and you can be called directly

If you want detailed answers you have to wait till us volunteers have the time, or just do as we say in the short form. No one owes anyone a detailed explanation. Just to be fair I would have your PayPal account handy when you place the call for specifics. I recommend you don't call Bud "Uncle Bud" unless you mean it respectfully. Ok, so.................

The purpose of concrete backer boards is to get a "tile friendly" surface to accept the tiles. If the subfloor is already concrete, you're got just that. It would be very difficult and unproductive to attempt concrete backer on concrete. You'd need something like 60-70 fasteners per 3x5 sheet. That would be nuts. If you need to raise the floor, buy a bunch of SLC or have it mudded.

I completely agree with you. But the op didn't want to do that (I think in the 1st post.) And I think a fastener every square foot would be plenty sufficient.IMO

sorry if it sounds like I am trying to get answers fast, speed doesn't matter, I just get frustrated with one line answers that don't explain why..

like I said in my first post I don't want to go the SLC rout, that's why I was looking for alternatives to this... if it comes to it I'll just skip the tile and do the XPS then ply subfloor and put a groutable vinyal tile...
