durock question


Does Durock need to be thinsetted down to the subfloor (in this case 3/4" t&g ply glued and screwed to 16"OC)? Or can it just be screwed down?

It's and old house. The floor is not perfectly flat nor level, but it's reasonably close.

Thanks.

Thinset it down and screw or use roofing nails.

The thinset is there to fill any voids or hollow spots----very important to do this.
