Countertop help................

Posted by RVP on September 18th, 2000 10:39 AM

What is the best medium to use under a tiled countertop? In other words, we just installed new cabinets in our kitchen. We would like to have a ceramic tile counter top. What substrate is used under the tile??? Seems like it will need to sort of water resistant even though it will be sealed by tiles.

Particle board has to be out!! Plywood? What else is used?? Also, what is the standard thickness that you would want to use? The books on tiling just seem to focus on floors and walls.

Please Help.
