Can I tile on to a wooden floor?
The wooden floor where the floor tiles are going on to must be sound with no flexing. Firstly we would recommend overlaying the floor with 9mm minimum plywood, screwed at 200mm centers. Then you should apply one coat of primer to the wood and allow to dry (it will depend on the adhesive you are using as to whether this is necessary). Then we would recommend solid bed fixing the tiles with cement based flexible adhesive. The floor must be dry fully before grouting (minimum of 24 hours). Then we would recommend using a cement based wide joint grout with added flexibility.
