My though was to rip out the hardwood floors and put in 3/4 inch plywood to come flush with the concrete slab then install Ditra over both the plywood and concrete before tiling the whole thing. Does that seem to be sufficient to cover the transition between the wood sub-floor and the concrete slab, preventing future cracking? Also the concrete has old black linoleum glue on it, does that mater for installing the Ditra? Thanks, G That black glue may have asbestos in it. We just did this, but the vast majority of the floor was concrete, only a very small wood section. We hit the entire floor with EcoPrim, then feather finished the transition, then used I think Kerabond over the entire floor. Ditra would be a great solution, but be careful with that black glue! Because of the asbestos and adhesion.
Thanks Dan! So you think if i paint over the cutback residue with Ecoprim, then I should be good to go with an unmodified thinset under the Ditra? Is the Ditra enough to not give me cracking issues where the wood and concrete meet?
