Small bath flooring project.

KMS Woodworks
by KMS Woodworks
Completed for a client, Old tile was set on particle board, minor water damage had caused some tiles to lift and others crack.
Fixtures were removed, and old tile was removed, an air chisel was used to make quick work of this normally difficult task, Hardibacker Expand Text... was set with mastic and nailed off. A radiant heating system was installed and level quick was applied over the heating element. This provides protection of the element during further install and adds thermal mass for more uniform heating. Tile layouts were figured and set, then the area was grouted.
In one of the intermediate pics the toilet was reset for weekend use...this is a single bath home.
