I have a recently poured concrete floor in my basement. I will be tiling the bathroom, laundry room and, due to occasional minor water coming in, the bedroom and office. I will be using ceramic tiles. The thing I want to know is: do I need to place some sort of underlaying on top of the concrete prior to laying the tile or can I have the tiles put straight on the cement?
On a bit of a side point, can I assume that I am making a wise choice to put in tile rather than any other floor to minimize headaches should water come in?
