Not sure about tiling on it..... But I think this product is the best combination of materials to date.

From a tileguys standpoint:

The video says the product can be used under ceramic tile. But, based on the demonstration in the video I would challenge that wisdom.

I also would doubt it would conform to an uneven concrete surface without some serious lippage of the sheet/board edges. Under tile that condition would be unacceptable. A moving substrate guarantees broken tiles and loose crumbling grouts.

Technically nothing is required for an underlayment when installing tile to concrete.

Looks like a great product for installing under laminate flooring or carpet.

Why do you need the Tyroc with laminate?

You only need the thin pad under the laminate that they sell with it. How much is the tyroc a sheet?
You dont need to get the paint off the floor if you are putting laminate down. my uncles neighbor had laminate put down in his living room and they left the carpet padding under it . its cheap laminate so it shouldnt be long til it cracking along the joints. the guy also lined up all the seams.

It's a basement. I want added protection in case of any small amount of water getting in.

Gotta get the paint off so the leveling primer will bond properly.
