Ditra anti-fracture and thinset


I recently installed some stone tiles over a ditra anti-fracture mat using fortified thin set. Later I realized that you are suppose to use non-modified thin set. What is going to happen and what should I do?

Ditra anti-fracture and thinset


there is a section in this forum labled for flooring questions. Those guys will probably be more knowledgable about the brand new products like ditra.

Sit back and enjoy your floor, simply using modified thin set instead of unmodified in itself will not cause a problem. However.....

Since you didn't follow directions on that part of the installation, is it possible you also didn't prepare the subfloor and framing adequately for natural stone tiles? There is a different requirement you know.

Please tell us how your subfloor is built and with what starting with the joists and working up.

If you're lucky, nothing. If it starts to fail, you will need to remove it and start the process again.
