Fixing Quarry Tiles and Bringing Them up to Desired Height

Postby Coltheref » Tue Apr 28, 2020 4:11 pm

I'm adding some 6mm thick quarry tiles to an area of low footfall floor that has been stripped and screeded with sand and cement. I need to bring the level up to the existing quarry tiles which are 15mm thick, so there is a depth of 9mm to make up. Can I do that with adhesive, or should I add another depth of screed say 4-5mm?

Hi coltheref
Suggest you use self-levelling compound preferably one including latex - an ordinary sand/cement mix is not very good for the thickness you have..
