Remove plywood subfloor before tileing

Recommended Posts

I am going to tile a guest bathroom. I have removed the linoleum and all adhesive. There is a 1/4 plywood layer over the original subfloor. The floor is dry and clean. Do I need to remove the plywood subfloor before installing the backer board and tile?

I've become a fan of Ditra. I've really gone over to the other side and don't even think about cement board anymore.

In which case, you'd be taking out the 1/4" underlayment and placing new....something or other as a subfloor for the Ditra.
