Tile Emergency


I have a bathroom I'm remodeling right now it’s 8′ 6″ x 12′. The old subfloor was 1/2 plywood and 1/2" particle board so I replaced the subfloor with 3/4″ advantech T&G and then added a second layer of 3/8″ plywood over it. I am using a ditra uncoupling membrane and 36″ x 6″ porcelain tiles. Here’s my problem… I checked my floor (or thought I did) for level before laying the ditra. Tonight as I was cleaning up I noticed my level laying on the floor and being out of level so I went to check that side of the room and against one wall the floor is sloped to be 1/4″ low over about 16″ along the length of the 8' 6" wall. The rest of the floor is flat and level but up against this one wall (one of the 8′ 6″ walls) the floor slopes! Is there anyway to correct this now that the Ditra is already set?

Re: Tile Emergency


Put some extra thinset under your tiles in the low area.

Re: Tile Emergency


Build it up like sparehair said.

Or trowel out the low area along the wall with some thinset. Screed if it helps. Wait a day.

Re: Tile Emergency


I'm using Mapei Uncoupling Membrane Mortar over the Ditra. It's considered a medium bed. From what I gather it can be applied thicker? Once we are done with this I'm sticking to HVAC lol
