Thinset, AdMix, & Trowel Size
I'm about to go help a buddy install some 12" x 24" ceramic floor tile in a bathroom, and want to make sure we're off on the right foot. Have read through lots of postings this week - very helpful, and great reminders. We'll spend some extra time on reinforcing/replacing/flattening the subfloor, thanks to all of the postings about that.
I've installed several floors, but the largest tile I've used is 8" x 8". What size trowel should we use for 12" x 24"?
Similar question about thinset... Do we need one of the more pricey ones? At the HD, options are:
And 2.5 gallons of AdMix for $20.
We're going with plywood/mortar/hardibacker/mortar/ceramic tile.
Cheap stuff for the hardibacker embedding, Versa or Flex (with AdMix?) for laying the tiles?
