installing Travertine floor tiles


Obviously You need a floor first, then set ditra. Go to ditra web page and do your homework, read specs, and you will see.
I use it several times in different structures it work every time, but read instructions and type of setting.

Uh, Bud and Jaz are actual tile installation experts. I'm not, but even I know that Ditra will not cure all ills.
(I have installed ceramic a number of times , but don't consider myself an expert.)

installing Travertine floor tiles


...Sorry about my older post, did mean to say "forget everything", I meant, you can also use.
I am just trying to bring up a good alternative or supplement that nobody mention, you guys are right about everything I read too. And if you don't secure the subfloor I will crack anyways.
Take a look on crack isolation membranes installation ANSI A108.17
I am not expert but I only lay down tiles for six years, hundreds of ceramic, porcelain , stone and glass jobs, for a tile store company, different procedures, lots of problems, repairs, lot of field experience, I learn a little about that and other little reading ANSI installation standards books.
