Installation - Ceramic Tile


The subfloor and underlayment must be a minimum 1-1/8” nominal thickness, structurally sound, cross braced between joists, and meet a deflection rating of L/480 under ceramic tile and L/720 under marble.

  • Surfaces must be structurally sound, dry and free of contaminants such as sealers, cleaning compounds, oil, dirt and dust, etc.

  • Deflection is best pre-checked with a live load and measured with a laser instrument.

  • Multiply® 3/8” is recommended for ceramic tile applications for improved joist-to-joist stiffness.
