  • Enclosed raise deck

    Hi everyone. I recently had my raised wood deck enclosed; I want to tile the floor. My question is do i need to use a vapor barrier, OSB and vinyl tile on top? Skip the vapor barrier? Use back board? Not sure how to proceed.
    The footers around the deck were reinforced when the walls/roof went on, so I should be ok there. Just trying to figure out the best way to get the tile down. I've read differing opinions on whether the deck boards should be removed and i planned to just leave them in place and lay the sub-flooring on top. Any professional direction for this amateur would be appreciated.
