Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by egm shower walls with ditra
taking apart an existing non-functioning shower to the studs, i re-built it with ext ply (instead of cement board), fiberglassed the bottom 1' walls (and shower pan) then covered the walls with thin-set, applied the ditra, then thin-set the tiles. method was far more flexible, easy to use, cut with just scissors. tiles adhered perfectly. Not the 'contractor method' i know, but then neither was the tiling.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mike Great price for great product
I use to use cement board under tiling projects until I discoveted ditra (and kerdi for showers). So much faster, easier and less messy to use, but one pays a bit of a premium for that convenience. For a countertop tile job I went to hd for ditra and discovered that hd is pushing another similar product and the ditra was priced at about one-fourth its usual price. Great! Bought two rolls instead of just the one I needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by njguy great product but expensive
used 3 rolls of this for underlayment in 12x12 kitchen. very easy to cut and install. made for a much improved and solid, flat subfloor. Lines, rows in the product make it easy to install tile. the squares in the product make for very solid suction when laying tile

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RangerRemodeler Great Product....sucks that the Depot doesn't stock it in store anymore!!!!
"Ditra" is the only underlayment I use in my own home, and for installations in customers' homes also. I recently found that the stores in my area no longer stock it. They switched to a generic brand. That just let me know to order "Ditra" in advance of my tile jobs. I've been installing tile over "Ditra" for 5 years now, with zero complaints of shifting, grout cracking, or lifting tiles. Far and away the best substrate you can EVER install underneath tile floors!!

Great product and easy material to work with. Much faster than putting down rock board.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rob Ditra does not stand behind claims.
I would never purchase Ditra ever again. I spent almost $7,000 to do my entire house, had some cracking in a powder room, called the Ditra rep and they denied it for several stated reasons: they don't know whether it was installed correctly (Wow, I didn't know they had to be there throughout the entire installation process!); the powder room is roughly 5' x 8' and they said I should have installed expansion joints - are you kidding me, expansion joints in a 5' x 8' residential powder room. By the way, it took me months to actually get a hold of a Ditra rep after leaving repeated messages. He treated me like a criminal from the minute he got to my house - you could tell immediately that they were not going to assist in any way. It does not appear to me that customer service or standing behind their product is a top priority for Dietra. Check out how the Ditra competitors stand behind their product before spending your hard earned $.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kerick913 A great underlayment alternative
This can be used as a replacement for typical Hardiboard, cement board, or similar products that need to be screwed in place and sealed. Ensure subfloor is clean and secure, cut Ditra to size, apply a thin coat of thinset to floor, and then place Ditra on the floor. Press it into thinset with your grout trowel to smooth it out. You can start laying tiles right away. It is a fairly expensive product, but it saves a ton of prep time and does what it is supposed to do. Also, the cost of other underlayment and installation is eliminated for the project. The waffle texture really grabs onto the thinset and gives a good bond to the tile. You may use a bit more thinset than normal, but that stuff is cheap. The product can be used on vertical as well as horizontal surfaces. Makes a nice water proof barrier.
