Update: Custom's diagnosis was correct. The SLC did not adhere to half of the floor. It had lifted about 2" from the layer below. I was able to chisel it out quite easily without damaging the...

Thanks Bob. That hadn't even occurred to me but makes perfect sense. I called them and they think it was a de-lamination problem caused by the primer drying out too much. I was not aware that the...

Unhappy Is my floor ruined?

So last night things looked fine as the floor was curing. One corner was still a bit wet. This morning I take a peek and noticed a bunch of cracks along one wall. I look closer and realized that...

Fantastic, thanks for the explanation! :bow: I'll see if I can find some Laticrete 317/Megabond for under and on top of the Ditra. If un-modified thinset can cure under water, does that mean I...

Question Questions about Ditra installation

So the floor is coming along nicely. I decided to play it safe and use nails to secure the lath. The manufacture said "no" to putting the cable directly over the metal lath so I went with the...

The Mapelath didn't pan out, so I'm back to plan B: put down metal lath and a layer of SLC before installing my radiant heat cable. In tileguytodd's Liberry article about SLC over electric radiant...

I had another thought: does anyone know of a self-leveling compound that doesn't require the use of lath when pouring over plywood? The manufacturer's documentation indicates that such a thing...

cx,

I just drove to every place that sells lumber in my local area and I can't find any AC or BC Exposure 1, plug-faced plywood. The best I could find was AC and BC Exterior :crap:
