How to tile on this....

Hi,

Looks like 70's style lino over k3, wonder what the "most efficient" way of tiling this bathroom is. I assume could have asbestos.

Thinking screwing down lots, sanding burning in then using ditra, then tile.

Thanks!

Hi, Ken.

Probably not a sound plan due to weak bond under the sheet goods....and if you suspect asbestos...sanding shouldn’t be considered. But before we go too far, can you tell me what “k5” is?

Does that mean 3/8” particle board?

Welcome back, Ken.

If you'll add a geographic location to your User Profile it might help with some of the unusual terminology.

Surely this is not the same floor you were asking about 7 years ago. Or is it?

You probably don't want that stuff under your ceramic tile installation. And you really need to know what you have for a subfloor under that thin layer. And you want to know if your joist structure is suitable for a ceramic tile installation. Have you checked all that?
