I'm remodeling a kitchen in my apartment and I have concrete subfloor. I'd like to put tiles, but my dilemma is whether I should put anything below the tile.
There are two questions that maybe someone can help me with:
-I'd like this to be somewhat easy to remove after 10-15 years and I'm not sure how easy it would be if I lay the tile directly on the concrete. For example, there was tile there now, but it was on top of vinyl and that wasn't too bad to remove. I feel that I stick the tile directly to concrete it will be very hard to remove
-Second, the building requires me to have STC and impact insulation class minimum of 55. Is it the special tile that meets the requirements or I have to add sound attenuation underneath ?
