Is My Floor Suitable For Tiling?
16th September 2019
The suitability of a subfloor/substrate should always be fully assessed before carrying out any preparation or installing a floor covering. British Standard 8204 should be referred to for full guidance and clarification.
The main criteria to be assessed is:
Sound/solid – is the subfloor/substrate strong and stable?
Dry – has the subfloor/substrate dried/cured completely?
Free from contamination – is the subfloor/substrate clean?
Laitance free – is the subfloor/substrate surface free of fines?
If the answer to any of these is ‘no’, then the subfloor/substrate is not suitable to be laid onto and further preparation is required.
