What are you adhering to what and where? Ultraflex is a latex modified Portland cement thin set mortar.

zant999,
Rather than us picking your brain one cell at a time why don't you give us a synopsis of your project and let's see where it goes from there.

The products you are asking aboubt are basically the same thing.

Hi guys, I'm confused. Iwish to replce my ceramic floor tioles , which are sound and in good condition, and replace them with vinyl planks.
The advice i'm given is "must rip up the tiles, back to bare concrete, use a levelling compound and lay the vinyl on that" to " no need to take up old tiles, just get someone to screed the floor with Ardex K15 and lay tiles on that"
Any advice from anyone who's done this thing before?
Tony

Yes.
But first...
Tony, please begin your own thread rather than highjack this one. This would make things much easier if both of the topics turn into several comments from several people.

Thanks for the reply, but I'm confused...what exactly did I hijack? I'm new to this forum and I thought I would get a better answer to what I did.
Sorry about the typo's,
Tony

tony,

This thread was started on 4/28 by zant999. It is a new thread and zant999 may choose to continue it along with other participants.

Now here comes tony22@eftel with his own issues and questions totally different from those issued by zant999 this threads creator.

It is very confusing to try to work with two competeing subjects (topics) in a single thread. So...please begin your own thread(s) any time.

To participate in a thread contributing information on the same subject matter already established in the thread is one thing. To come along and ask your own questions inside of an already working thread is "hijacking" the thread.
