Ditra is a tile underlament that wil provide a solid foundation for tile while allowing minimum movement of the substrate without damage. It also will provide a waterproof barrier.

Yes, Jim is exactly right. Also, it is gaining in popularity. Not only is it used on floors a crack isolation treatment but some installers are now using it in showers and tubs areas as a replacement for mudboard. It can create a completely watertight enclosure.

Thanks Michael and Jim. So it sounds like it's a good investment to use one with all these benefits. Good advice.

I have used ditra and many of the other products made by the Schluter systems company for many years and am very pleased with all of their products. You can find out more about them at www.schluter.com
