    Ditra matting and tiles cracking a year later

    We had tile installed in January of 2018. The installer put Ditra down. The grout stated to crack and come out a few months after installation. Other tiles move. Is this caused by the Ditra? Or some other reason?

    Ditra direction? Parallel to short or long edge?

    i have a room to tile that is 3.1m by 10m and I wonder if there is any problem with running the ditra parallel to the short edge so as to avoid a thin 0.1m strip? The tiles will be porcelain 1200x600 laid 1/4 offset but parallel to the long edge of the room.

    Do I need to latex over UFH pipe prior to laying ditra matting?

    Hi all, I have recently had JK Underfloor heating route out my existing screed floor with a 15mm groove to take the underfloor heating pipe.

    Preparation Cement board and Ditra

    Excuse me of this has been done to death but my normal prep for chip board or floor boards (besides fixing the boards themselves) is to glue and screw 6mm cement board then over the top with Ditra mat. Is this too belt-and-braces to do in every situation or is this the norm? Cheers.
