Is it ok to let Ditra set to subfloor today, then lay tile tomorrow?
 
Hey gang,

Its getting late in the day and I dont forsee laying any tile today but have time to lay the Ditra. Would it be ok to thinset the Ditra to the subfloor, let it sit overnight, then tomorrow thinset over the Ditra and lay my tile. Or does the tile have to be laid ASAP after the Ditra is put down?

Thanks

No, the advantage is that you don't have to wait. You will do fine leaving it until tomorrow.

I concur no problem letting it set up.
Sometimes I let it setup anyway.

"Sometimes I let it setup anyway. "

Like when the fish are biting or an early afternoon tee time.
