Particle board underlayment help
 
Help
We are doing a whole house remodel, and the whole house has 1" particle board on top of 1/4" plywood...... The only thing we can put on top of this is carpet and vinyl we want wood and or tile.... Can we put 1/4" plywood over the particle board pulling up the particle board is not what we want to do

Forget tile.
But you can do a floating wood.

Tile is possible, but requires more work.

The particle board and 1/4 layer has to come up if you want tile, nothing can go over it for tile, what's under that subfloor.?):)

You sure you don't have OSB?, if particle board, NO, if you plan on tiling, it can't be anywhere in the mix, EVER.:D
