Tiling on top of old wooden floors....and insulating at the same time

Hi folks,
Browsing today, came across


Impressive because it insulates with a dry screed and underfloor heating can be layed in this. Much cleaner and quicker than using concrete....

This is an eco-materials site I think...so may have other interesting stuff on it.
I wasn't aware that it is possible to tile on top of old wooden floors.....When I've seen online videos it's always been a choice between ripping up the old floor and concreting the surface before tiling...(nice looking but cold)....or fixing large sheets of ply/chipboard and screwing everything down to get rid of any movement and then tiling.....

Has anyone used it ? Expensive or affordable....?

Thanks all,

Have bookmarked these sites....

No problem matey, send them down. Tell those thick breton builders I live in the 87 which is in France, give them a map of the world and tell them to head for 'Europe', ask directions after that.

We were taking the piss out of expats in Dordogneshire, mate :)

Tell 'em we've got wolves round here, slavering at the bottom of the garden !

Well my roofers turned up when they said they would & have carried out the re-slating of my roof in an impeccable manner. 5 mins for coffee am & pm plus of course the obligatory 1 1/2 hours for lunch. So far they have taken 6 days & should be finished by Thursday night I reckon, 9 days in total. I've told them that you guys are taking the piss. They are not happy & have asked where you all live. I of course have obliged so if you hear of 3 French guys looking for you, best hide your sorry selves :-)

Eh non,Vic, I'm a bit far from you ! The copious wine sounds a good consumer incitation :)

Ian, you obviously haven't met our guy 'Eric le Sausage your basement butcher' I've just bought pork sausages & chops plus Turkey escalopes & legs 13 kg in total for the sum of 50 euros.The 3 kg of ribs & copious wine was free :-)

Stop this ! I cannot take this any more !

*mouth watering Eccles cakes anyone?*

Aw cripes, Vic, good job I didn't have the apéro "en quaffe", would have snorted it all out !

Being from Norfolk I really appreciate her dumplings...

Can't bear the thought, Vic... would plunge me back into the era of flappy striped pants and trilbies :)

*off for apéro to wipe the mind screen clean*

my lady friend is from Lorraine" I suppose her quiche is a bit special also;-

Yeah sorry, a bit lame I know, it's getting near to apéro time, inventivity at a low ebb :p

Incidentally we get all our pork and chicken products from this local farm produce place, excellent quality and nice and cheapo!


It's 'cos all the thugs in films who beat up their wives seem to wear 'em . (sleeveless vests that is,) Think about it ! :-)

Not the old "Got a choucroute to roll out first" excuse ?

As it happens, my lady friend is from Lorraine and her choucroute is simply deeelicious !

Just got our first one in Carrefour this morning, Peter. Hadn't been out shopping since it came out. Going to quaff it with a roast fowl sometime this week. (Got a choucroute to roll out first though, that needs a decent Alsacian white - or a craft beer)

I don't drink much Ian, I spill most of it !


and on that subject...

le Beaujolais Nouveau is quite quaffable this year I find...

If we get over quick to the Gender Equality thread there're a few pints going before chucking out time, Peter :)

She was only the Town Clerks daughter but he let the Borough Surveyor...

She was only the Radio Operators daughter but she dit dit & dit dit & dit dit..

now getting my coat to join you Ian !

Is that another one concerning the "landlord's daughter", Vic?

*gets coat*
