Should have been steel reinforcing in the cement under the tile?
I was at a 14th floor apartment being remodeled. 18" square, ~1/2"
thick, marble-like tile being put down in the living room. They ran
out of tile so we could see the edge of what had been done. About 1"
of cement beneath the tile.
AIUI, underneath everything is a concrete floor. Isn't that true for
any 16-story, 40-year old building?
Someone commented that there should have been steel reinforcing in the
cement under the tile? Is that true?
