tile flooring

without my knowledge or consent, the property manager at a rental property that I own hired an unlicensed contractor to "fix" a few loose tiles at a property. An unscrupulous contractor initially installed the flooring and put ceramic tile directly on plywood with no subflooring, thus within a year the tiles became loose. The property manager again sent in an unlicensed contractor who removed a great deal of the flooring (without my knowledge) then used quickset to adhere the same type of ceramic tiles again directly to plywood with no subflooring. This is bathroom floor, regularly walked on. What are the chance it will last any longer than the first floor did. Thanks for your help!!

Welcome, Anne.

You'd need to know more about the floor structure to determine that. You say there is plywood but no subfloor. There hasta be a subfloor of some kind, the plywood you see being the most likely candidate.

Find out what you have for a joist structure and subflooring and we can help you determine your chances. There is one industry recognized method for installing ceramic tile directly to plywood subflooring, but the type and thickness and method of installation of the subflooring is very specific.

My opinion; worth price charged.
