Re: Subfloor thickness for tile?

said by VioletVenom:

5/8" min subfloor thickness for joists 16" O.C.
Edit: What dimensions are your joists? 2x8, 2x10?

Not sure, I'm yet to measure. Likely 2x8.

If they are 2x8 your deflection is going to be greater than recommended for tile (span, dimension, spacing). Without doing the math you could probably get away with 3/4" T&G ply, glued down to the joists of course (if they are 2x8s).
