Hi

Have a garage floor to price up.
The customer wants 600mm x 600mm porcelain.
Want to price it right but haven't done a garage before.
It it a case of SLC & ditra?
Also are there particular Adhesives/Grouts recommended?
Finally would I need a particular grade of porcelain bearing in mind there will be 2 cars parked in it?

Many thanks!

Full coverage is a must. SLC if the floor isn't flat enough. Is there a damp course under the concrete? I don't see the need for a decoupling membrane and wouldn't have thought Ditra would be suitable anyway.

Not sure about DPM but I would assume so.
If not is a paintable one sufficient?
There is a slight crack through the centre so would an antifracture mat be required?

I have tiled loads of garage floors, loads of concrete external paths/steps/patios and not once have I worried about a DPM because I use a suitable adhesive. A quality S2 would be more than enough.
