We're considering ceramic tile for a deck that will be exposed to the worst
a Minnesota winter has to offer. From what I've read it seems feasible with
the proper underlayment, but does anyone have experience or advice to offer?
I'm doing the same thing in NJ and got some different advice.
Don't use ceramic, too porous. Freeze thaw will bust it up. Porcelain is
recommended. I am using VersaTile Redquarry Tile rated for outdoors.
I got differing opinions on underlayment membranes. Some adamently
advised for it. Some said don't bother. I used it.
Some recommended some special "caralastic" (very expensive) thinset mix.
Some recommended mason mix. I used Hydroment PM.
And make sure you seal the grout.
