Hi
We have a bitumen floor which we think is also acting as a damp proof membrane in our bathroom and want to tile over this with thick vinyl tiles. (We've been advised that it's safer to leave the bitumen where it is and cover it rather than try to lift it as the danger from the asbestos content would then be non existent). A previous thread on your forum recommended a screed of Portland and SBR on top of the bitumen but didn't say what the mix should be. Also wondered whether this would work for vinyl tile adhesive as well as for ceramic. Any help would be gratefully received - the more I google the problem the more confused I become!
Thanks
