Topic tags/keywords: cement mortar underlayment tile

Can anyone recommend a mortar mix for a 3/4” thick underlayment for a tiling project? The only one I’ve seen so far is 1 part Portland cement to 3 parts sand. I’ll be using wire lathe, but I’m still concerned about cracking.

I’ve read that the mortar bed underlayment is the best method you can use for tile. Also, I’m installing hydronic heating underneath.
