Tiling on Concrete Slab & Granite Saddle Installation in Shower
Hi, I need some help on a couple of questions that came up during our renovation.
- Tile on concrete slab: We would like to put tile in our basement. The concrete floor is smooth finished (our original intention was to just leave a concrete floor and stain it) and has control/isolation joints every 8 feet. A couple of tile guys have expressed that this might be a problem because tile will crack at the control joints and that they will have to tile within those 8-foot square boxes which I think will look ugly. Will Ditra (or any other brand uncoupling membrane) solve this problem?
- Bathrooms: Which is installed first in a shower, the tile or the granite saddles on the shower curb? Who installs the saddles - granite installer or tiler? Please let me know the correct sequence for this is.
