Tiling over heated concrete floors

I am tiling over heated concrete floors (hot water lines imbedded in the concrete). Is there anything specific I need to be concerned with to put ceramic tile over this surface?

Hi
Yes..You need to be concerned about expansion and contraction...the tile and the concerte don't always do these at the same rates, so you may get some cracked tile or joints. A crack isolation membrane is a good way to go here..probably the best one over heated floors is Schluter Ditra.
