Hello All:

I want to install porcelain tile in our kitchen which currently has a 3/4 inch wood floor and there is some kind of sub floor underneath that. My contractor says that I do not need to rip up the wood floor or need to install any subfloor on top of the wood floor. Is that alright to do that?

I will admit that I do not know exact details on your subfloor, but based on what you are telling me, I would say WHAT?

sounds like a bad bad bad plan if you ask me.

I have a similar question but I have wood floors over concrete. Is there any way to install ceramic or natural stone tiles over a wood floor?
