Well folks we decided to go for the house - we have to finish deciding on options and upgrades.I think our final question is installation of tile - the floors are concrete with in-floor radiated heating. We want tile and pergo over the floors - only a small section (kitchen and toilet areas) come tiled - the remaining area is too expensive to have THEM tile, plus the tile we can afford for that area looks really cheap. So we are going to upgrade the few spots that are tiled (to a non-cheap looking tile) and tile the rest ourselves.The areas we will be tiling ourselves will have carpet over them - we will be able to rip the carpet out and tile.Now we have done tiling before, but ONLY with a home with a wood subfloor, so we laid the durock prior to tile installation.Question: if you have a nice, new concrete floor in good, stable condition, do you have to install anything between the floor and the tiles (other than thinset under and grout between tiles)? Are there any special materials that one needs to use when one has in-floor heating?Thanks!Jenniferp.s. pergo isn't a problem with in-floor radiated heating, is it?? (We know hardwood isn't a good thing, which is why we were thinking of pergo )
