What is the best tactic to tile a counter top that has laminate on it, Should I replace counter top with plywood than backerboard ? or can I scuff up laminate and tile over it.

Hi Barry and Linda,

Put 1/4 in. cement backer board over the laminate. Then tile using thin set as your adhesive. Check out Hardi-backer, Wonder Board and Durock. Find them at Home Depot or at your tile supply store.
