Sliding Mirror Door Track Installation


I would like to install a sliding mirror door in a master bath. Do I install the floor track before installing the concrete backer board for the ceramic tile base.

Sliding Mirror Door Track Installation


Why not skip tiling inside the closet?
The bottom guide needs to be sitting on top of the tiles if you go that route.
You are talking about bypass doors right? Not a pocket door.
Better check the height of the door to make sure it will even work with the increased floor height.

The closet door opening is 48x81, for a 48x80 bypass mirror sliding door. (There was a set of bifold doors there before.) I really don't want to drill into the tile. Could I install the track onto the 1/4" backerboard?
