Temporary flooring install


you either have to use durerock or hardi-backer mortared down so the floor will not flex and the grout break

Backer board and or durock will not prevent the floor from flexing, its just a tile bond.

It wont flex because of the plywood if put down correctly. Cbu is just a filler to hold tye tile down.

Just a word to our members when trying to help people who are doing a task for the first time--

AVOID abreviations---CBU ? OSB? MDF?
This can be frustrating and send a new member elsware for clear understandable directions---

Every trade has this problem---not bawling you out here--just reminding you that CBU might not be good to use if you have no idea what it means.
