I want to install 6x24 tile in my kitchen and living room.

Joists: 2x10 16"OC with 13 foot span
Subfloor: 5/8"

I worry about the subfloor and plan to add another layer of 5/8" pine plywood underlayment and then 1/4" CBU (Durock). Will the additional 5/8" of ply be enough? I'm trying to keep height down as much as possible. In installing the additional layer, I plan on using crown staples and will not attach to the joists. Should I use screws? And do I lay the 2nd layer perpendicular to the lower layer or to the joists?

Thank you.
