DIY Ditra Question


I am laying travertine on my mom's bathroom floor. It's mixed sizes of 2" x 2" to 2" x 4" and 4" x 4" pre-layed into a 12" x 12" sheet. I've already laid my Ditra. I think I already know the answer, but can I set the tile with Laticrete 220 Marble and Granite over my Ditra if I only add water to the mix?

I can't seem to find a white unmodified quality thinset at my local Lowe's or HD.

Thanks in advance.

Try Laticrete's Megabond

If not that, use a lightly modified thinset like Custom's Versabond. You don't need a medium-set mortar for your project.

Ya gotta chose sides sometimes, Ray. Prolly says the same thing for porcelain tile, too.

Lotta porcelain and stone been successfully set without benefit of leche over the years/decades/centuries.

Lotta tile been successfully set with modified thinset on Ditra over the years, too.

My opinion; worth price charged.
