Questions & Answers

Can I lay 12x24 porcelain tile on top of 1/4 plywood.

Asked by: Skip
Yes, you can under the right circumstances. Should be an exterior grade plywood and the subfloor/plywood combination should be a minimum thickness of 1 1/8". The plywood should also be laid in a certain manner. Exterior grade plywood is designed to withstand moisture/water. In fact I've left exterior grade plywood in a soaking rain for hours just to see what would happen. Let it dry out on its own. It didn't buckle, warp or delaminate. Again, just make sure you have the right type of plywood designed for floor tile. Despite popular opinion, cement board is not a must.

Is this the type of thin set mirror to use on joints between cement board as well as on subfloor for cement board?

If not what is best thin set to use for this.
Asked by: Shaun
This product has great rigidity and adhesion however when I have an application that requires a little extra then adding bonding agent to this works wonders. Hope this helps, I have used this in just the same application as your questions.

How many square feet of coverage does one 50 lb. bag get?
Asked by: Electrician10101010
Your question leaves too many variables to answer with a good number. However with a 1/4" slotted trowel I cover approximately 200 square feet. Hope this helps, 1/8" gives more coverage and 3/8" gives you less coverage.

VersaBond-LFT 50 lb. White Fortified Medium Bed Mortar is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 319.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have tiled the entire floor area of my house... I have tiled the entire floor area of my house with 36x6" plank tiles (1750 sq ft) using this product. I would have given a 5-star rating if the instructions had told me what I had to learn over the many months I have used it. It has been a real learning curve and the instructions are only pictures, not words. It does not give any description, hints, or working times, etc.What I have learned:1) It is VERY important to work as cleanly as possible so that there is a minimal amount of mortar left on and between the tiles when it dries (especially if the tile has a textured surface!), or you will waste a LOT of time cleaning before you can grout.2) It is VERY important to start with the right consistency mud (which can't be explained with a picture and no words). If not, by the time you get to the bottom of the bucket it will have thickened and if it's dried too much you will have to throw it away before you're done. Smooth like cake frosting is what you want. I have found mixing half a bag at a time (about half a 5-gallon bucket) works best for me. That amount and consistency will last about 2 hours before it gets too thick to work with.3) Putting a thin smear of mortar on the back of each tile will make sure it is evenly adhered to the floor. The first area I did had a couple tiles that sounded hollow when you stepped on them and even "clinked" when my dog ran over them. I eventually pulled those couple up and replaced them. I haven't had the problem with the new technique.

Excellent product; we use Custom product primarily regardless the situation there is always the proper mortar for the job. Used for setting some 6"x36" wood-look tiles in this occasion without any issues. From bag to bag the Custom mortars remain consistent meaning we can get the perfect mix every time. Have set thousands of square feet of tile using Custom products and will always return to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well on both porcelain and ceramic 12 x 12... Worked well on both porcelain and ceramic 12 x 12 tiles on shower floor and walls up to 8ft. Troweled and buttered perfectly. Working solo made it a long project and wish I had more working time with it but simply made batches to work small areas at a time to beat it setting up on me.

I have been using versabond products for years but this was the first time I'd actually used this particular mortar that's especially for large format tiles. It mixes up just like the other mortar but the price is about $5 more.

It is more expensive than many thinsets but far superior in handling and use at various thicknesses. It is the only one I will use.
