Floor tiling help needed for tiling on to timber

Postby NurseSarah38 » Mon Jul 18, 2022 3:25 pm

Hi I am moving into a new build soon and decided to do the floor tiling in the kitchen myself.
The floor is wooden (not floorboards) and I've been watching videos about priming the floors before laying the tiles. I have seen the following things...

Use pva on it the night before

Use a pva/water mixture on it a couple of hours before.

NEVER use pva on wood before tiling.

So I am a bit confused. What do I need to use/get for the floor before tiling please?

Thanks for any help.
