DIY question - can you tile over chipboard floorboards?
Found 28th Dec 2008
Hope someone can help. My husband wants to replace the lino and tile our bathroom. The floor consists of those chipboard floorboards, on top of wooden joists (which are approx. 400 mm apart). It's only a small bathroom (approx. 2 x 2 meters). Can he just chuck down grout and tile? Or will that not work because the wood would move/bounce and cause tiles to shift around or crack?
