    I am new to the site and new to flooring. We are putting a combination of 20*20" and 13*13" tiles in our entry way. I removed the existing small tiles that were laid in the mid 70's and am wondering how I should proceed. Do I add a leveling agent over the existing material, or do I remove it...

    Hello - I am installing Durock right now. I've tried a dozen times and still have some pretty minor bowing (inward) on a board or two. I'm wondering if I can live with that and float/correct it with some mortar or thinset prior to tiling, like I might do with sheetrock and mud? I'm fresh...

    I am in the process prepping to lay porcelain tile in the kitchen. The sub floor is is the correct thickness with vinyl tile on top and then a layer of white stuff (papery feeling) that was underneath another laminet floor (i think). The floor seems very flat and is exactly as high as the...
