ceramic tile over existing wood deck?

17 years ago

We have a beat up, ugly, high maintenace cedar deck attached to the second level of our house. There is a flat-roofed room below it.

We want to redo the deck, and are considering porcelain tile. Several deck builders discouraged us. However, a home builder said it could be done easily, by laying Hardiplank over the existing deck to created a solid subfloor, then the tile on top.

Any opinions? Is it a reasonable idea, or should be stick with a wood or composite deck?
