Just speaking of the ones I've actually seen. I'm quite sure there are many with benches that don't leak, and many without benches altogether.

No doubt this shower had fabric at the seams, and at...

Every time I see a tile shower in a tract home, it's got a leaking bench in it. :shake:

Not that it matters in this case, but I thought Hydroban was more of an olive green color.

I think it's the flange, and what's left of the cement board that came down on the flange. The tile is removed.

Welcome to the forum, CB. :)

From what I can see, it looks like they relied on the tile and cement board to waterproof the bench. At least, I don't see any evidence of waterproofing in the...

I think he's talking about cutting the tile on the inside of the curb to fit the slope of the floor, as it drops going right to left.

I don't see how an installer could set the tray, waterproofing, and tile, and not check for proper slope. I check my floor at every stage, just so I know there's going to be good drainage at every...

I could understand removing the sheetrock on the other side of the wall if water gets in the cavity. But I don't understand demolishing the shower made with Kerdiboard because of water on the...

Why would you need to demo a shower if it got the Kerdiboard wet inside the wall?

I figured the epoxy he referred to was the grout.

Who supplied the tile? Did you buy them and bring them to the site?

One advantage of Kerdiboard over sheetrock is that if you have a plumbing leak inside the wall, Kerdiboard will hold up without issue, but sheetrock would fall apart after a short period of exposure...

Certainly nothing wrong with using Kerdiboard. It'll just cost you more, but will save you time. You won't have to worry about covering the walls, although you'll still need to cover the seams,...

I'd put a towel or some such object down the vent to catch all the trash. Be careful removing it, so nothing falls down the vent. I lost a good tape measure that way once. :D

Starting with some basics:

1. Is the framing sloped away from the house at 1/4" per running foot?

2. Is the waterproofing layer (if there is one) flashed up the house exterior?

It's just whichever way fits the best with the dimensions of the shower vs. the width of the roll. I often run vertical, but if it causes me to finish with a lot of leftover material, I'll run...
