Customer Questions & Answers

how thick can I make the mortar base?

I have a roughly 1sqft by 1/2in deep depression in the floor I am going to tile. The rest of the floor is level. Can I build up a base using only the mortar or should I patch the concrete, if patching what do you recommend.

install tile on basement floor?

Can this product be used to install the large tile directly to the basement floor? My home is about 70 years old, and the basement floor is fairly level, and I don't believe there are any cracks. Would this product work?

I'm a DIYer and didn't know if this mortar was particularly any better than the less expensive ones. After using a bag of this product, I then used a bag of VersaBond-LFT which sells for $17.97. In all honesty, the VersaBond didn't seem to stick that well to the back of the 12" X 24" porcelain I was putting down. Using a 1/2" X 1/2" trowel, I'd apply the thinset to the floor, apply tile, pull the till up and was a bit surprised how the thinset didn't transfer to the tile. It actually created more work. So after using a half bag of VersaBond, I tossed it and went back and got more of this product. $8 a bag premium adds up but the time savings and doing a good job is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. When installing 18x18 travertine, I mix 2parts of this with 1 part of standard versabond thinset. That way, I get the smoothness with the support I need. If I were installing flagstone, I would use it at 100% by itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I just remodeled my kitchen and used this product for stone back splash installation. It leaves enough time to finish one whole section before starting harden. The bond is solid and tight. Just make sure do not put too much water as I did. The powder does not need much water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product My experience is similar to Builder's. If you're not working quickly, the mortar will begin to skin over, at which point newly laid tile won't stick. If you find this happening, simply scrape up the skinned-over mortar, put it back in the mortar bucket, and mix it around some more. I did all my tile cuts before mixing any mortar. This significantly reduced the amount of time for actual tile installation. I was able to complete a 27 square foot bathroom space in about 3 hours with large format tiles. This being my first tile job ever, I'm happy with the results.
