Funky Balcony outdoor tile....
Seems that jobs I'm running into lately are funky or just plain weird. I've got a job to do in a couple of months (when it warms up a little)...This is an outdoor semi-circular balcony which has tile that has loosened up from exposure to the elements....and lack of care. The customer wants me to clean and re-use the existing tile because it matches other tile around the house. I'm figuring at least a day just cleaning the tile on this 6' radius balcony. The original tile was laid on wonderboard partially and nothing but mortar on the rest of it. This was simply poured over roofing membrane. The customer doesn't want anything to be nailed or screwed thru the membrane because it is right over his office area in his bedroom and does not trust the membrane's ability to seal around the nails or screws. I've never done outdoor tile that is adhered to wood much less to roofing membrane. I'm just wondering if you guys would give me a little advice on what I should put under the tile. The wonderboard / concrete board is in good shape and tiles to it are firm. The tile slopes from the center against the door to the balcony out to the edges. Virtually all the tile not on the CBU appears to have come up due to moisture/water getting under it and freezing causing it to separate from the substrate. Your advice on how to put this tile down and keep it down would be greatly appreciated. The only thing I've come up with is using hardibacker or some other substrate which I could possibly glue down with a suitable construciton adhesive. Then lay tile with mortar, grout, and put on a sealer as normal indoor application.

I would like to understand more,
Why half of the tiles where laid on the wonder board and some of it on nothing? There is a different level on the sub floor?
I take that if the house owner doesn’t want any screw the only option for you is to glue the wonder board with mastic tin set.
Any how what ever thing you do seal the sub floor before you install the tiles.
Good luck
