tile in basement
Hi, I posted this in the flooring forum to, I hope it is okay i ask here as well.
I am remodeling my basement and want to put ceramic tile down.Â the house is almost 60 years old.Â Do I need to use a decoupling mechanism between the tile
and the concrete floor?Â I will be tiling about 130 square feet.
the floor is not perfectly level, but any changes are gradual.Â I am thinking of using the 2x2 tiles that are on a mesh backing.Â think this would be okay
to follow the curve of the floor?
part of the floor I need to tile is around the floor drain.Â this is where my shower drains in to, yes it is okay where I live.Â What is the best way to
tile this part?Â I thought of maybe raising it a little.Â I could raise it about 2 inches, and it would still be the lowest point in the basement, what
would be the best way to do this?
Thanks for all the help.
P.S. I have never had a moisture issue in my basement.Â
