Ceramic bonds best to a cement board set into thinset then nailed or screwed--or a membrane like Ditra.

HOLD ON !!!

I doubt very much you have a 1/2" subfloor. Building codes don't generally allow it. If you do you can't put ceramic tile on it.

What the heck is "Durafloor"?

Why would you need to waterproof the floor?

How about you pony-up some more details so someone can understand what the heck it is you are wanting to do?
