Questions & Answers

Can this product be used over terrazzo flooring? If not, what product do you have that will allow me to lay a ceramic tile floor over the terrazzo?

Asked by: Bob
It depends on whether the terrazzo is resin based or cement based. If it’s resin you would need to use an epoxy mortar for bonding new tile, if it cement based then the medium bed should be fine depending on what type and size of tile you are setting. Also, Terrazzo surfaces must be structurally sound and scarified. Remove all grease, oil, dirt, curing compounds, sealers, adhesives or any other contaminant that would prevent a good bond. For further assistance please contact our installation division at 800.272.8786 option 2.

Can this product be used as thin as 1/8th inch up to 5/8ths? Also, can it be used on a fireplace hearth that gets hot when we have a fire going?

My need is to level an undulating brick fireplace hearth that I will be covering with travertine stone tiles. What Home Depot sells it in the Cincinnati area?
Asked by: Rory
Medium Bed can be used as thin as 1/8" up to 3/4" thick on horizontal applications. To level an undulating surface either vertical or horizontal use Custom Float Bedding Mortar.
