2 Questions (luan vs Multiply) & ceramic transition piece


1st is any suggestions on 1/4" luan vs something called (multyply). just wandering about price and if necessary. my guess is the vinyl is cheaper and they would ike me to put down a better underlayment.

2nd is what to use as a good transition from ceramic to 3/4" hardwwod floor. ( somthing attached to ceramic or just a wood T transition after both are istalled

WOW! That statement is making no sense to me.

If you are talking about a ceramic tile underlayment then forget about the luan. Luan is specifically poo-poohed by the entire tile industry and it says so everywhere you look. If you are installing vinyl then I suppose it is acceptable.

Multiply is a brand name, I have no idea what it is used for. What does their instructions say?

Shouldn't be using plywood (only) for a ceramic tile tilebacker anyway.

Your choice.

The abovementioned website has some good information if it wasn't for the phony question and answer segment. That's been faked. I think the guy is selling books more than anything else.
