Tiling to a floor is a versatile flooring option that can be used on various surfaces, including concrete, plywood, cement board, vinyl/linoleum, existing tile, and natural stone. Concrete floors provide a solid and stable base for tiling, but they often need to be leveled and cleaned before installation. Plywood is a popular subflooring material that provides a stable base for tiling. In wet areas, this should be exterior grade plywood with the reverse and edges of the boards having been sealed. The plywood must be securely fastened to the floor joists and should be thick enough to support the weight of the tiles, with an underlayment of cement board added.
