Easiest way to avoid that problem is to use a sheet on the floor and up the walls a couple of inches, then you can switch to a liquid on the walls. I did a small number of those a few years ago with...

Welcome to the forum. :)

No glue, and just fasten to the joists as though the 1/2" plywood isn't there. I'd recommend 2 1/2" screws or longer, and deck screws only. No sheetrock screws.

Advantech is fine.

You can use various sizes of sticks to accomplish the screeding. Once screeded, then slick it off with a magnetic float or steel trowel.

Cement board over bare lumber is even worse, particularly on a curb or half wall.

That could change, depending on the substrate. Definitely don't use mastic over a waterproofing layer of any type.

But I wouldn't use it on shower walls or floor, regardless of the substrate. ...

Welcome to the forum, Dan. :)

Sorry for the trouble you're having.

How long can you wait? The good ones are usually booked weeks or months in advance.

If I were using a roll-on type membrane, I'd get Custom's Fracture Free. It's a little cheaper the Redgard.

You shouldn't have to reseal that often.

You should be able to post links now that you have three posts. It's an anti-spam measure.
