Kerdi and Noble Niche

Hi all,

I have what I hope is a simple question. I am redoing a tub surround with Kerdi and am interested in using a Noble niche vs a niche from scratch. I saw in The Kerdi Shower Book that John has used Kerdi with Noble niches. The Noble site states that modified thin set should be used to lay tile in the niche but the Kerdi installation prefers unmodified. Would it be best to use unmodified on both?

Thanks.

Mark

Hi Mark, welcome! If you can git your hands on some Versabond usually found at Home Depot, you can use that for everything.

Mark,
You dont have to put kerdi on the inside of the niche, its already waterproofed
