Hi Brian,

If you dry the shower with a towel after each use, oil base enamel paint will do the job. You might have to touch it up in the future. :)

Hi Robert and Ali. :)

I've done over a hundred Kerdi showers and have never used the Kerdi seals. If you cut the tiles right around the valves the valve trim pieces will adequately seal the water...

Hi Alex, :)

Lots of questions. I'll take a shot at a couple of them. I grout all my Kerdi showers, but I make sure the framing, especially in the corners is tightly screwed together. Nails won't...

I have always hung my lath and "chicken war" vertically. Instead of cutting strips for the corners just lay one sheet over the next. Make sure you have at least two inches of lap.

I think I would go ahead and do the RedGard and then fill the crack with either silicone or one of the others . . . Kerdi-fix, PL-100, etc. I wouldn't use thinset there; it'll crack out. :)

Hi Randy, Welcome aboard. ;)

I would place narrow grout joints between the pieces of quartz and grout it like tile. I've never used quartz in a shower, though. :)

Hi David, :)

My opinion:

Since you're using 2x2 tiles I don't think I'd worry about meeting the requirements for a stone floor. And since it's only a small job I think your stated plan will...

Deck mud over concrete can be applied in any thickness right down to nearly nothing and as much as 3 inches or more. It's very cheap as compared to SLC, and in my opinion it's more exacting. I think...

Hi Alex, :)

I don't think two-stud spacing will hurt anything. Typically, the floor won't get all that hot anyway. ;)

I'm pretty sure it must be the plug. Looks like you've installed the system correctly, and if that's the case it can't leak. :)

Don,

The easiest and least expensive way to get the floor back to the original level is to re-do what was done the first time. That is, remove all the old mud and tile, then re-float the floor...

Hi Dan,

I can't help with the valve. I've never lived with one. I've tiled around them. :)

I might have another solution, though. Plumb your valve on one wall with the shower head on the other....

I think removing the bottom row will be beyond tricky. :) If I were doing the job I think I would go back with the bullnose cover-up. They do make colors other than black, though. I...

Hi Joey, :)

I don't think you've removed the trim plate from the valve, and I think you should do that and try to evaluate how the walls were done. Like Bubba, I also think your shower floor is...

Hi Jim, :)

Can you pull back the carpet to determine what type of wood is under it: plywood or planks? Tiling the curved treads is going to require quite a bit of skill. :)
