Hi guys, brand new member so I'll hope not to be a pain in the rear.

Had to lift the tiles in part of our bathroom. Turns out the underfloor heating wasn't buried under a screed and was in with the tile adhesive. That's been binned, but the bigger problem is the adhesive is ripping up chunks of the insulation pads beneath.

Do i just tear up the insulation and start afresh or is it worth the effort to try and flat this out?

Any advice would be appreciated

Why did you have to lift the tiles?
The wire does'nt have to be under any screed but is advisable
you can tile straight onto it.
Thanks fod the reply

There was movement in the tile and one had cracked. Once I lifted I noticed it was dot and dab which is probably where the problems started.

Couldn't get any replacement tiles to match so had to lift the lot.
