I gave an estimate on a kitchen floor (6m2 - quite small) based on the fact that it was already tiled (he was going to remove the tiles) and me thinking the substrate must be pretty good because the tiling looked ok.
Anyway upon him removing the tiles he has now claimed he thinks it is a Weyroc floor.
Firstly What is weyroc ?? is it just chipboard?
Secondly the kitchen fitter who is doing his kitchen told him, ' aah you'll be ok, just get the tiler to bang some self leveller down and the jobs a good un' !!!
So now thats what the customer assumes I have to do (thanks mr Kitchen fitter - MFI N*B head)
Do I treat weyroc as chipboard? ply, prime, fastflex etc
or is there other requirements?
Am a bit confused on this one.
thanks in advance
To answer your question, Weyroc is a brand name for a particular chipboard...!
Make sure none of the boards are loose,overlay with ply 18mm british standards(should be able to get away with 12mm if there just ceramicacs)screw down every 300m(screwfix turbogold)then prime.
Thanks for the replies lads, as I thought (feared) really!
so in theory I am going to raise the floor 12 - 18mm. Can I definately get the door strips to accomodate this step.? The other room is carpeted (hallway). Also I will need to adjust the door (no probs with this).
alright beatt mate.... clean all the crap off the floor and screw down 6mm backer boards will give strong floor to tile onto and less height increase....
Hi Beats, google for "no more ply" it's a 5mil material, if height is a factor this stuff will do the job.
no more ply is a" backer board " of 6mm ...same as i mentioned....lol lol

excellent, thanks lads
back again, sorry for dragging this through the mud, but
once I have the backer board down, and primed. Would Bals single part flex be ok to use or should I stick to fastflex?
also should I add poly to the grout as well.
last question on this subject honest

dont want single part flex as this is slow setting .. just use rapid set flexible.... use bal super flex grout as its ideal for newcomers to tiling as its premixed formula (hydrated )... other alternative is bal wide joint with bal GT1 additive......dave...
Topps sell it.
Varley is right there. topps do sell it and are probaly the cheapest aswell.....cheaper than diy stores anyway lol lol.....
its about £9 a metre at tops with trade account
