Its a sticky situation. The IRC gives me the run around and ends at "Install in accordance to manufactures recomendations". I looked on the James Hardi websita and found nothing about waterproofing. This is kinda important. Anyone?

My understanding about them is
'' ICC IRC - International Residential Code


Scope:

The purpose of this code is to provide minimum requirements to safeguard the public safety, health and general welfare, through affordability, structural strength, means of egress facilities, stability, sanitation, light and ventilation, energy conservation and safety to life and property from fire and other hazards attributed to the built environment .

Well Jim, it would appear you are correct.

Take a bow, Roberto.

Meanwhile........Matt is under pressure to make a point, or a sale, or defend the honor of our industry.

This is to publicly defend the honor of the tile community. Very publicly.

Back to your original post, what about shower wall waterproofing is being questioned? The need for either a vapor barrier OR a surface membrane? Or something else? Drywall/kerdi? Greenboard?

What are you trying to either prove or disprove?

I need to prove that shower wall construction using a CBU requires additional waterproofing. Basically, I am looking to prove that the installation of CBU alone on a shower wall, with no additional waterproofing, is not supported by ICC code.

I cannot find any support on the James Hardi website for waterproofing either. They say to follow the local building code in wet areas. See the pickle?

The local building inspectors can help you with that.
If a pvc liner is used + the VB and the HB , you will have hard time proving the necessity of the surface waterproofing.

In all seriousness, any info would be extremely helpful. I am pretty broken up over this and cannot find any documentation.
