Hello everyone, I've heard alot of good things about this site.
I have a tile question. I plan on installing a tile floor in the living room \ hall way of my home,in the past i've either just laid the tile right over the sub floor or put down backer board and laid the tile on top of that with thinset with good results either way.The Home-Depot site and the Hardi-Backer site now recomends putting down thinset between the backer board and the sub-floor and thinsetting and taping the seams like you would drywall. Is this really necessary? Are there any advantages or disadvantages to doing this? Thanks for your opinions
