Re: Porcelain or Ceramic Tile
Ditra is also about 1/4 inch thick so there's nothing to gain there. You may have to tear out your lino and OSB and re-subfloor it to keep the right height. To be honest I'm old school and have a distrust for all these new fangled products like Ditra and another product by the same company (Schluter) Kerdi Kurb, which is a styrofoam curb used to form the outside walls of a shower pan. Ditra is basicly plastic so I wonder how well it will stand up over the years, and tiling over styrofoam in my mind is a job failure waiting to happen. Von, if I were you and wanted to do it once RIGHT, tear out that OSB and lino and put down some hardibacker or some cement board, tile it, and never have to worry about it again.
