    I'm about to tile my bathroom and have a few questions.

    The floor is T&G with a thin layer of plywood (I will remove this).
    the bathroom was previously tiled from floor to 1/2 way and the top painted with bathroom paint.

    At another property I once had a badly cracked tiled floor and want to avoid this.

    Q's

    1. What is the best brand/type of backer board e.g. cement/fibre?
    2. I've seen 6mm and 12mm available, which should I use?
    3. Is it worth laying Schluter Ditra over the backer?
    4. What is the best way to prepare the painted walls prior to tiling? is there a product available, or is it a case of sanding/scoring?

    Thanks! 20211107_122818.jpg 20211107_122830.jpg

    We always use 6mm no more ply or tile backer board on bathroom floors and a good powdered flexible adhesive. No call backs in 5 years of doing this.
