i have a patio built, it has walls, storm windows, even heat. ive ripped out the rug, which now leaves a concrete floor. ive had a bit of floor flooding in the past... i think thats past now. but i was thinking of laying plywood on the concrete. in the future, possibly putting ceramic tiling as a floor. will the plywood be ok as a "subfloor"? i assume id have to use floor adhesive or whatever they reccomend to adhere the tiles. does this sound feasible? anything i am missing here? problems? steps?

Why not concrete backer board? It's what tile setters use all the time.

Why consider concrete backer board? Isn't the existing concrete surface an ideal surface for tile installations?

We'll first have to ask why franki is considering plywood in the first place?
