It's fine that he took 150 hours, but it doesn't sound like he had the skill or experience to charge $50/hour. $50/hour is for the guy that could knock that out in a week.

I'm using the same one, brushed nickel to match all my finishes. The tile I used also has quite a bit of gray it in, so it blends in very nicely.

Sorry, I was misremembering. It wasn't 2 part epoxy, it was a single hot glue in a cartridge called HiPur. Very high quality, very strong. It set up as fast as regular hot glue. Maybe a minute...

I used a two part epoxy that shot out of a heated "gun" to put my crown molding up on the tile. If the pieces are short enough, you can hold it while it sets up. For longer pieces, I got my son to...

Modified if you're laying ditra over plywood subfloor, otherwise unmodified. Unmodified for bonding tile to ditra.

That's the manufacturer's recommendation.

Like everybody is saying, stone epoxy the length and screws set halfway into the stone for added shear strength. Stone epoxy, not some silicone or Kerdifix. You ever tried to break apart the...

You seem stuck on Kerdifix but you're not mounting anything to Kerdi. They make very good epoxies designed for this type of installation specifically. Like the poster above said, rough up the...

No, your main problem is just flat out a lack of proper construction and waterproofing. And tell your wife you have work to do to fix your home.

Ah, the oft threatened and seldom used mechanic's lien. There's a reason most contractors don't file them. They need to be perfected within a specified time frame. That means that it's not an open...

I'm sure there are many newer threads. Many people continue to use Versabond with Kerdi. As you said, voids the warranty if that's a concern.
