I started a bathroom renovation several months ago before finding this forum. I currently have Durarock installed over a 4 mil barrier. A local tile store recommended that I coat the Durarock with their waterproofer ( Bonsal B-6000 (http://www.bonsal.com/customers/102070313422502/filemanager/proddocs/B_6000_Apr2005.pdf) ). I have read on the forums here that you should not use a waterproof membrane on both sides of the Durarock. Any help would be appreciated. Next shower will be a Kerdi!

Hi Howard, welcome to the forum.

And you are correct, you do not want to have a waterproof membrane and a vapor barrier. Good job asking about that!

Any more questions you might have on this project, please post them on this thread and we'll be able to follow as you go. Good luck!
