    I'm finally getting around to rip out the victorian mosaics in my hallway, sacrilege I know but the sub floor has sunk and restoration cost is prohibitive. Don't worry they'll be recycled/sold.

    My question is for a mid terrace floor will 50mm PIR insulation suffice and a 50mm self leveling screed on top? Just trying to work out what depth I'll need to dig out to keep the reception rooms level.

    My other question is the front door is original timber and then there's the second door. This area is unheated at present, should I run the UFH in this area or is it just wasted heat? And what's the best perimeter insulation and thickness as I will need to tile or vinyl over it I guess.

    Also what floor coverings does one suggest to create a 'grand' entrance?

    Victorian tiles!

    150 or 200 eps insulation under for me, 25 pir perimeter insulation.

    Unheated porch
    The porch area is 1m x 1m, so just leave that with no heating.

    I'll go with 150mm EPS, is 50mm self levelling screed okay or is 75mm preferable?
