ditra

I've read some people recommending Ditra, and after my last experience with plywood...I'd prefer to use this stuff. I've found it at the local Home Depot, and I like the look of it because it's so thin.

Anyway, I'm assuming I use thinset on both sides (to bond it to the floor, and then bond the tile to it) but what about joints? How would I prepare them?

I am doing a kitchen 10' x 12' so I'll obviously have several joints that need to be dealt with.

Any suggestions?

It has full installation instructions somewhere on the website.

Hi Luthar,

You do nothing with the joints. Just butt the pieces together and go about your business.

Hi
You would only seal the joints if you wanted to waterproof the floor..using another product from schluter called Kerdiband...but you don't need it.
