Ditra over Scratchcoat


Is this concerning the other thread you've got going at this time? If so, keep all questions in one place. But.........why would you wanna keep any scratchcoat? It's one of the worst methods known.

Ditra over Scratchcoat


Hi Jazman,

I was thinking of using a scratchcoat to level out the floor over the OSB and then apply the ditra over top? Would this approach work? I thought about using the Mapei Novaplan2 SLC compound, but I'm reluctant after hearing stories about this product.

Ditra over Scratchcoat


Scratch coat is not for leveling. What have you heard about that product? There is a story with every DIY SLC project. Those type of products can all be tricky if you don't follow directions to a T. There are many other brands too.
