Please Help! Bathroom Under Construction


:confused: My bathroom floor has 1/2 inch plywood with 3/4 inch pressboard on top. Can I lay tile over this if I use concrete board on top?

1/2" would be unusual for subfloor, are you sure? What is pressboard? Can you describe it? Assuming that the joists are sufficient (stiff enough) to support tile, you are looking at having 1-1/8" of plywood plus cement board under the tile.

If OSB, Yes.

If particleboard, No.
