    Hi all

    I have really confused myself as to what my next steps should be prior to re tiling.
    I have removed old tiles from screed (tiles were down for 11 years and bonded directly to screed with thinset over the wet UFH).
    Obviously I have the odd divet here and there from chiselling so do I need to level it all up with self levelling compound and then can I tile directly on that?
    Had a quote from a tiler who said level, decoupling, tile which was a bit of a shock price wise, and then the second tiler said as the screed has been down for that long then just level and tile with no need for membrane and use flex adhesive?
    There were no cracked tiles previously but what is the correct method for this well cured screed with UFH?
