Thanks guys. I guess I will be doing a little screeding... So, I know you folks don't seem to like Custom's stuff, but would versabond do the trick for this, or should I go the step up to flexbond?...

Levelling out a dip in the floor

So I am correct in saying that there is a 1/4 dip in the middle of an 8 foot span. This dip is due to different heights of the joists. So the imagine parallel lines and a level run 90 degrees to...

Tile and Hardwood issues?

Has anyone ever had any serious problems tiling next to hardwood with the moisture that is present in the thinset and ofcourse releases itself into the air? Any issues with wood floors cupping?

I think I have about 1/4" in the middle of the dip. I should be able to use some thinset and screed it out with a long straight edge.

Hidden Junction boxes

Not sure where you live, but in many places hidden junction boxes in the walls are against code.

In other readings it seems that for over 12x12 many people are suggesting 1/2x1/2. I know it has something to do with the trueness of the floor as well. I will have to see what the floor is like...

Trowel

I have been reading up on setting the ditra. I believe a 1/8x1/8 trowel will do for the ditra, or a 5/16 v notch it seems.

What size notch would you reccomend for 12x24 tile?

It just seems to go in easier. It...

Brian,

Thanks for the heads up. I wonder if anyone else will comment on this issue of setting the height so I can eliminate the transition strips.

As well, should I tile first, or lay hardwood...

I checked the Liberry and if the I-beams are also Nordbord ( a distinct possibility), then the floor should be rated for L/480 with the 19/32" material.

So, assuming the joists were engineered for L/360, I would just need 3/8 ply of the grade you suggested at minimum and then I could use Ditra. What about 3/8 ply and then 1/4 concrete board?
