We will be having porcelain tile installed in our new build. Our house is being built on a slab with radiant heating. Our builder has suggested us using Ditra under the tile. We have mentioned this a few times while getting flooring quotes and the salespeople are surprised that the builder is suggesting this for a new build. I would appreciate any opinions on using Ditra. Thank you.

RE: Ditra?

Ditra is a great product. It "Uncouples" the tile from the substrate. This allows movement of the slab to NOT transmit to the tile above. I might suggest that you go to the site and investigate Ditra. Plenty of videos and information there.

RE: Ditra?

I love Ditra. Way better (and easier to install) than cement board. And a great technology.
