Hi guys
A little advice if possible
I have a bathroom 2.6 x1.9 on joists 18” gaps
New weyroc floor
Ufh is on spreader plates in between and a wet board flush into the area
So my question is decoupling mat or not ?
For this size area is it needed
Will there be that much flex?
There have been extra noggins put in situ but ??
Porcelain tiles 600 x 300 going down on Mapei s9

My advice is that the flooring is wholly inadequate to support a tiled floor. It’s ill-prepared and unsuitable to accept tiles.

HI what do you mean ?
The weyroc is 22m on 5x2 joists 18" apart The wet room tray is supported by 22mm structural ply between new joists
there are noggins to strengthen the floor and there is very little flex why is the floor wholly inadequate
You shouldbe able to clarify that statement
That's like saying the a car is unfit for the roads without explaining why!!!
