Wink Ceramic tile on outside concrete porch

I am going to do a small outside concrete porch with tile. The porch is only 4 feet by 6 feet and is in good contition. Do I have to put down a moisture membrane?

Ceramic tile cannot be installed outside.

Only Porcelain and natural stones can be outside.

If you opt for an above stone, then apply the tile with a good modified thinset like Versabond or Flexbond.

Thanks Mark, I am installing porcelain tile and I did not want to take the chance of breakage. It gets pretty cold here in PA. Thanks again
