Missed out on heated flooring

I desperately wanted to add heated flooring to my home. I made the mistake of redoing my floors but not doing further research. I just ripped up the old carpet, laid down a cement board and put a tile overtop. When you rip up your floors, that is the only time to install the heating […]
