SLC: Mixed Feelings


You know I had thought you were on a slab, just didn't wanna read the entire thing again. If a few spots sound hollow, then they need to be redone. Might be able to cut out, prime a just do those spots.....maybe. Try it and see.

SLC: Mixed Feelings


Guys,

Honestly, tomorrow I would like to lay down those tiles as is. With those materials and those cracks. My INTUITION, which never let me down, tells me its ok and that I can proceed.

I really appreciate, first of all, YOUR EXPERIENCE, and HELP, but I decided to do it this way.

SPECIAL THANKS goes to JazMan, mobiledynamics and JetSwet!
Thanks to you I've learned a LOT!

I am not saying "Good Bye!" and I will keep you posted!

Thanks again,
almazon

SLC: Mixed Feelings


Heya guys,

Here's some update...

I am on my way to return AcrylPro.
Even I've found most of reviews are good, some say they have had problem with drying, etc. PLUS, of course, you said its NO-NO.

Also, luckily, I found an opened bag of this product in my garage:


I believe this is what pgc555 was talking about.

Does this product sound better?

Yes, Versabond is fine but THROW that bag away, especially if its been sitting opened .

Rule 1 of Tile : Always check the batch code dates. You want fresh products.

You can lead a horse to water but....
IMO, I would address the cracks before moving ahead.

Hey guys,

Here's few pics of my tile job done. Keep in mind that it was done for the first time...










Few lessons learned, like butter-backing, working by small areas and keeping the thin-set as fresh as possible and I think next time I will perform much better.

Now, once I installed Pedestal Sink I realized that it would be nice idea to put wall tiles around it which is discussed in Tiles Over Painted Drywall

Thanks again,
almazon

Nice job!
Is that toilet flange below the finished floor?
How will you correct that?

No, its just pipe covered with plastic. Toilet Flange will go either leveled with Finished Floor or slightly (1/4") above.

Almazon: how do your tiles look after nearly a year? Any problems with cracking? I'm looking at an SLC project but I will be using vinyl tile planks over it so I won't have to worry about tile breaking.

Heya guys, OhioDon,
I am cool and my tiles are even better. All there and nothing cracked. So far so good.

I don't have wood moldings anymore. I replaced them with Marble and Aluminum cap for richer look.

Thanks for asking,
almazon
