    Hi just removed 25 yr old tile from a small bathroom floor showing no signs of water damage. Do I really need to put cement board down? I would like to go over the existing plywood so it will tie with the existing threshold strip going into the hallway. Thanks for any advice..starting in a couple of days.

    I don't know what the materials are called over your side, as long it's exterior or WPB (waterproof board) plywood and screws down with non-rust screws, then you're okay to do this. Having said this the plywood ideal thickness should be at least 19mm or thinner if it's over exsisting floorboards.
