Edge strip kit

Do the strips need to be removed before tiling? Website shows leaving strips in place when strips are placed vertically against the wall but says nothing about when they are placed flat against the floor. Anyone have experiences either way, leaving them in place or removing them? Edge strip kit for pouring SLC over radiant heat. Website edgestrip.com.

I didn't see any application for use with tiling. If you can point to it on their website, that would help.

There is no mention about tiling on their website, thatís the problem no mention of what to do with the edge strips after the slc has been poured and is ready for tile. At this point your slc is surrounded by the strips so do you just tile over them or remove them and fill the space with thin set when laying the tile?

Hi Tim,

Remove the strips and throw them away before tiling.

i just used drywall shims, the paper kind to build a dam for the SLC. I then just ripped it up when tiling.

just my own DIY solution. not a pro.
