VersaBond is fine for installing the Ditra in that application, Dan.

Now, if you could tell what kind of tiles?

Schluter doesn't want you to use a modified thinset over the Ditra to set any kind of impervious (porcelain) tiles because of the afore mentioned drying issues. VersaBond is only slightly modified and you may well get by using it on top anyway - lots of people do. But thinset's cheap, and you could go get you some good-quality dryset (un-modified) to set your tiles and have met all the manufacturer's requirements. Or use the Versabond and make everyone else happy but not Herr Schluter. It's a strange little war they have going on there.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Go to your User CP button near the top left of the page. Find the Edit Signature line. Type in Dan. Then you won't hafta type it in whenever you post.
