We have had a screed (anyhdrite) with wet underfloor heating put down recently. After a few weeks they turned on the heating and then after a few days a small dark spot appeared, this grew in size to a 10cm elongated circle. There is metal pipe coupling directly below.
We suspected a leak...
My first post: I was wondering if anybody can give me some opinions on this forum. I have recently purchased a house in Luxembourg. I have tried to contact local professionals but I was not able to get a satisfactory answer from any of them.

I had my kitchen floor tiled a few weeks back. The floor is a screed slab of approx. 24m2 over wet UFH pipes clipped to Celotex.
This screed was “hand mixed” vs ready mixed off of a truck and laid around 100 days ago of a thickness of 60mm.
Around 45 days ago the UFH was commissioned...
I’ve got a timber to concrete floor to do. I haven’t done one for ages and when I did it was on the request of the builder so the responsibility was on him. This one though is for an old couple who have picked a 20mm limestone to be laid random bond across the joint so I don’t have the luxury of...
Hi need advice. We had the wet UFH done topped with screed. Been a month since the screed was done. Cracks have appeared at a few places. Is putting Ditra Mat absolutely essential ?? Will it affect the heat coming up from the UFH ?? Do the cracks need to be fixed ??
Hi, we've had a builder come out and put in a Longfloor screed to level a room by about 40mm.
Two weeks later we've seen a lot of bubbling come up through the screen but unsure if this is an issue?

It's been a couple of weeks of hard graft and I'm glad it's over.
Forget the name but it was a Tarmac cement based screed. Nice and flat, first big pour that I've encountered that actually had movement joints built in. When I first went to look they had been back to repair one crack. There was...
I am desperately trying to come up with an idea how to repair bathroom and kitchen floor. Floor slab on the ground floor in our house was constructed 10 years ago, finished with 4cm screed and prepared for tiles/hardwood flooring. We only had our windows installed and it was...
Evening all,does anyone know the % reading you need to tile onto cement liquid screed using a hair hygrometer ? Virtually all my floors in the near future are going to be cement based.this is probably aimed at Alan jackson(are you out there pal??)
I’m just about to start tiling the ground floor of my house with Limestone tiles, the area is around 80m2. The floor has a anhydride screed which I have recently sanded and hoovered. I planned to prime the area with neat ROCATEX acrylic primer twice before I lay my decoupling mat. I...

I was hoping someone may be able to advise me on when we can lay down our tiles.
We poured a 60mm screed on February 14th with wet underfloor heating set inside.
After a waiting several weeks we tuned on the heating and have been waiting for the floor to be dry enough to lay down the ceramic...
I'm new to the forum but have read many posts over the past year as I have created and tiled a wet room and also created and tiled a bathroom in my house that we are renovating. I've also tiled our utility room too. Thanks for all the tips & tricks I learned!
So, I'm ok with tiling...
I've got a new, tampered concrete floor.
Not sure if I need primer before applying Mapei Renovation Screed
If yes, I've got a ton of SBR. Will this work?
The screed will be containing UFH pipes.
We have a Gyvlon screeded floor that was laid over 2 years ago.
We've finally got round to tiling it.
It's got wet underfloor heating.
It had all the laitence cleand off, just after laying.
As we have been using the room, there is going to be some dust, dirt, grease etc etc on the...
I've been to look at a screed part of which is 20mm higher than the rest . Easy option screed up , but that's going to take £700 of levelling .
So options I see .
Grind it , score/cut into sections with disc cutter and kango or take that piece of screed right out .
Any bright ideas and options...
I'd appreciate it if you guys could help me out here; I've been reading as many threads as I could on the matter over the last few days here and while I think I have a fair understanding of things, I'd like to provide the specifics of my situation.
I have a 68 sqm apartment in which UFH...

Ive been asked to lay limestone to a new extension, it has a main room 11 x 5m with smaller rooms off.
At present no expansion joints in slab and they say they are going to grind 8mm deep joint in middle of room and in doorways!
In my mind 8mm won't achieve anything ? I am proposing...
