porcelain and Concrete Slab

I am going to lay 12 X 24 porcelain over a 550 sq ft cement slab. the slab has cracks.

What are the options, in terms of what i must put between the tile and the floor? Which option is the skinniest?

Thanks You in Advance,

Joe

The best and skinnest option for you would be Schluter DITRA.

Kurgon,

Ditra is NOT a crack suppressant.

you need to use something like Noble CIS or ProtectoWrap on those cracks.
any smaller hairline cracks you can use Redgard or FractureFree among a few others.

My appologies for being dense.


I have cracks, and would assume more cracks will occur over the next 10 years.


Will ditra protect against the transfer os a crack from the cement to the tile?

Is this what the noble product does?

Do I put Antifracture like Noble CIS over the entire floor?

Does an antifracture product like Noble CIS do what Ditra Does?


Thanks you for your patience

Joe
