Schluter System Ditra Underlayment – Protecting Your Investment in Fine Tile Flooring

September 24, 2010

As they are durable, attractive and very easy to maintain ceramic and stone tiles make excellent flooring choices for any room in the house.

However, installing such hard surface products can be more than a little challenging. In order to get the best possible result and a stable installation a good underlayment should be used.

The Schluter System Ditra underlayment is the favorite of many flooring installation professionals. Schluter-DITRA is a polyethylene membrane with a grid structure of square cavities that is designed to be laid onto a subfloor before tile installation begins. When it is used correctly it forms аn uncoupling, waterproofing, аnԁ vapor pressure equalization layer.

Some people do choose to skip an underlayment when installing tile flooring, usually as a cost cutting exercise. The problem with doing so is that down the line cracks are far more likely to start appearing in your ceramic or tile floors which could degrade the overall look of the floor as well as undermine its strength.

The small extra expense involved in using the Schluter System Ditra Underlayment really is a small price to pay for a beautiful floor that if cared for well can last a lifetime and beyond.
