Re: Is There a Flexible Grout for Porcelain Flooring


I have used the Schluter®-DITRA heat floor system. It is orange and looks like lego blocks. You can purchase to use with or without infloor heating and doesn't cause extra work. I tile and my husband does the cutting. I used in in my master bathroom and have not had any issues. I will use the same underlay in my last bathroom reno in the house as well because I do not have 1" understructure. Amount of subfloor is dependent on how wide joists are set apart. etc. It made adding heating cable so easy as I just pushed them into the spaces between the pegs. If you didn't run it right you just pull it up and do it again. Easy enough for a girl to do. Lay a skim of cement, push the mat into it. Push the cables in then tile. Added 1/4" to overall height.

Can I mix my own? With clear caulking? I will let you know how it works. Thanks.

You can't do that. What did you mean to say and use?
