Since uncoupling membranes are available in many different types, it is important to be aware of issues you may face when tiling. Image courtesy of Schluter Systems Ltd
It's important that the finished tile surface is flat with no tiles standing higher than the others. However, if the substrate is uneven, a number of problems can arise.
Anhydrite screeds have become quite popular, but tilers must be aware of a number of potential problems.
Floating floors are those which are used to improve insulation and/or to reduce noise. As they are not attached to a rigid substrate, they require extra care when tiling onto.
Newly-laid screeds take time to stabilise, so tiling onto the screed too early can end in disaster as the screed shrinks during the drying process.
Tiles classed as 'natural materials' vary immensely from ceramics in appearance and application requirements
Natural stone tiles require careful preparation prior to grouting, and need regular maintenance
Tiled areas in kitchens, bathrooms and showers can be subject to high humidity or water, which means the a waterproofing layer needs to be applied before laying tiles.
Whereas tiles are rigid and brittle, timber floors are flexible, which causes some movement in timber floors which need to be considered prior to tiling. Image courtesy of Schluter Systems Ltd.
Underfloor heating can cause an array of issues if not tiled onto correctly, from cracking due to heat expansion to damaging wires with your trowel.
