    Afternoon all, I will be self levelling a 20sqm floor to a depth of 20mm using a flexi levelling compound. My question is, should I fit a decoupling membrane before tiling commences? Thanks in advance, Stu.

    Not sure as yet, customer yet to choose. There will be no UFH fitted and it’s an entrance hall.

    Have you considered installing 20mm insulation boards?
    Might be a cheaper faster option, and if you're fixing porcelain I would be happy with the uncoupling properties of the boards replacing a dedicated membrane.
