Laying Tile

Posted by Dominick on December 18th, 1997 12:12 PM

In a month or so I will be taking on a project I have never attempted, laying ceramic tile in my entry foyer.

First, I need to remove the hardwood floor .
Then, this is where I'm not to sure what to do. I believe that I have to lay a wire mesh (or something like that.) After that I have to spread mortar over that.
Following that I know how to lay the tile.

My questions are:
1) Am I correct with the wire mesh? If so, what type?
2) How thick should the mortar base be?
3) How thick shoud the thin-set be?

Thank You in Advance.
