One sq. ft. or a million?

Maybe you can take time to tell us a little more? What was the thin set holding? How old is it? How well is it bonded? Is it all stuck well or did some come up with the tiles? What have you tried? Are you doing it yourself, how healthy are you? What room? What are you going to install? Is the floor flat, level.....etc.

This site is no longer charging by the word, IT'S ALL FREE!!

AND.........all posters should be made to state where the house is? It makes a big difference to know where it's located for obvious reasons. Are any of the moderators listening? hint hint.

Yes Mike thanks for that, you've been doing it for some time now. I'd like certain info required before the post appears, it would be so simple to make the change.

Knowing the location tells us so much. Weather of course, that's the main thing, but also; an idea on construction methods, wood types, soil types, and a bunch of others having to do with both. We are often asked where to find a certain product, (like a special thin set) yet the OP gives no hint where they are. We are often forced to just skip it and go to the next question.

I would wholeheartedly agree. We don't need an address or a social security number, but a city and in some cases a country would be very helpful.

Bud and Jazz--The location really helps---mandating a location has been discussed many times--

That will not be a requirement---some are concerned with privacy when they first join--I respect that.

After a few posts most will realize that no harm will come from putting in a general area--you will notice that the regulars do have a location--and that more accurate and code specific answers go to those who have a location.

I will continue to respect a posters right to remain without location until they feel comfortable adding it.-----Mike---
