Perfect! it's exactly what I use on areas like that. It only takes a very small amount to keep it in place,A small "dot" under a few tile should be plenty. I've never had an area that size move but on smaller entries I do it just to make sure.

This is close to the same issue I have. I am using avaire tile directly over concrete at the entry area (74" X ~48" in our walk out basement. My concern is the movement of the avaire floor. It will be bordered by door sill on one side, a wall on another, but the other two sides will be against carpet.

What can I do to keep the avaire tile from "creeping" into the carpet area...how do I keep it from moving around? I was thinking of using a silicone construction adhesive on the floor side (underneath) edge of the tiles bordering the carpet...would that work?

I put in a dri-core subfloor on top of the concrete in our walk-out basement. I would like to put in a small tile rectangle entryway in front of the patio door using avaire tile (about 9 feet wide by 3 feet deep). The dri-core raised the floor about an inch, and if I put the avaire tile on top, the ending floor height would be higher than the bottom of the door than what I would like. I plan to cut out part of the dri-core for the entryway. If i just put the avaire tile on the concrete, there would be a fairly big height difference between the avaire tile and the finished carpet on top of the dri-core. So, my two questions are:

1) can you recommend some type of underlayment that I can put on top of the concrete so I can raise the avaire tile up a little?

2) if the avaire tile is level with the carpet, will the 9'x3' grid stay in place? Should I try to keep part of the tile lower than the dricore to help hold it in place (like it would be if it were next to a wall)?

Hope this makes sense. Thanks.
