Hi Everyone, sorry not been around much. :oops: Hope you all had a merry christmas and happy new year :thumbsup:

Work has been quiete for me since before christmas (when the snow fell). Since starting up last April, I worked 8 months 6 days a week, sometimes 7, so I was pretty worn down and have enjoyed a nice 6 week break to re-charge and get ready for this years tiling season. Luckily, I was able to pick up the odd plumbing job to make ends meet...lots of burst pipes to deal with!!

So, I'm on my 2nd tiling job of the year and I have a query. As the thread title suggest, the floor to be tiled appears to be a thick chipboard (appears 20mm+, but wasn't allowed to drill a hole and find out exactly). The topside of the chipboard is covered with what appears to be a grey plastic laminate. It is definately not old adhesive from a vynil floor, and it looks to have the same imprint like the rough side of hardboard.

The property is a very new build (last 2yrs), and I have asked the customer if she can contact the developer to find out exactly what it is.

I just wondered if anyone here has come across it before, and can advise on prep or adhesive?

I wonder if just a 2pt flexible adhesive can be used for the ceramic tiles, or would you install a decoupling membrane first?

Thanks in advance as always. :thumbsup:
