What besides cement board can i use to set tile on?

Answer:

Just 2 other options to properly do tile. That is a mud base, but thats not for the average DIY. Or you can do a wood sub floor over your current wood sub floor.Several precautions if you do a wood base. It must be 3 ply fir , you must adhere it and nail it ( or screws) in a certain way. This if your going over the standard 3/4 standard sub floor. You must use at least a 1/2 ply wood. When done right a wood sub floor is almost ( almost) as good as a cement board base. But I d do cement board over a wood base any day. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar and check my qualifications there. GL

Hi Kaitlin, here's a link to a product called Denshield. I like it very well as it's much easier to work with than cement board. I think you could find this product locally.
