3/4 in thick hex tile--does it exist?

Posted by threeapples (My Page) on

the tile guy wants it this thick for the bathroom floor so it is the same thickness as the wood flooring in the adjacent room. i cannot find one this thick and am wondering if it's ok for the wood floor and the tile floor to be of different heights. if not, the tile guy said he'd build up the subflooring to make them even.

Build up the subfloor.

is it ok to build it up in layers? the subfloor just dried the other day and i worry that adding to it to make it thicker will cause cracks or problems beneath the tile? am i over worrying?

Put some cement board (hardibacker, wonder board, etc.) down to build up.

Not a big deal at all.
