Hi all, needed some advice. Can you fit kitchen floor tiles on a surface made level using a latex self levelling compound.

Can you tile straight onto the latex levelled surface or would you need to do something else before laying the tiles.

I hope i have been clear and if not apologies as this is my first time and i really am not a DIY person. Please as any questions if you need clarification and i will try my best to answer.

Regards

Prime first using an acrylic primer...
Then tile...
Andy many thanks for your swift reply. So just to clarify application of the primer on the latex levelled surface and then tile straight on?

No need for sand and cement? Might be a dumb question.
