Tile over treated wood question...again.

by John G.

Someone had the same question that I have. Can you put tile over a treated wood deck? The answer was yes, (what a relief) but you didn't go into prep detail, just membrane. My plans are using an underlay like durock or hardiboard, but need an exterior grade product for North Carolina humidity. I was also told a non skid membrane would go over that and to use an acrylic (plastic adhesive) no water in the mortar. The porch has been beefed up to hold the load but could you get specific with what goes on top of the treated plywood? Thanks.
