Bathroom tile around around old flange on subfloor
I have pulled up the linoleum floor in a small bathroom and plan to lay down tile. The subfloor is 3/4" plywood, and I intend to lay down 1/2" backer board and tile over that with 3/8" tile. The cast iron toilet flange is screwed on flush to the plywood subfloor. Can I leave it in place, and place the backer board and tile around it, and use extension and/or thick wax ring? Given that the flange is 1/4" thick, the finished tile floor would lie 1" above the height of the flange (if my thinset estimations are correct...
1)Are my estimations for thinset correct?
2)Can I get away with 1/4" backer board? (this would help with threshold issues too, since I'll be 1 3/16" above the halway wood floors if I use the 1/2" backer...)
3)Is it OK to have the toilet flange 1" below the finished floor?
Thinset: 1/4" (?)
Thinset: 1/8" (?)
Stable subfloor=1.25" with 1/2 backer; and 1" with 1/4" backer...
Use 1/4" backer board set into a bed of thinset and nailed or screwed---
Flange extenders are available as well as jumbo extension wax rings.
I'm in CT, I updated it, thanks for the tip!
Look through the tiling section here----lots of folks doing bath floors.
