The tile is glazed ceramic. The question was about

sealing the grout,and I think I will pass on it as I do not want to wait seventy-two hours. I sealed the sanded grount on the floor. I am using a top-of-the-line product. Thanks for in input.

Wall tile in a bathroom. Grouted with Mapei KeracolorU,unsanded,modified.

If I seal,how long do I have to wait after grouting and what,exactly,are the...

Laticrete 252 Modified mud.

Oops.
I got distracted and set 6x24" porcelein tile over my Ditra.
I have read a whole bunch of conflicting comments.
Have I ruined my installation?
Thanks.

Hey Joe! We must have been typing at the same time!

Nice photo. You make it look simple.
What will you do with the mantle? Are you covering it with mud or is it not visible? I would like to add one if I do this task and that will be a question (how)...

I won't know what it look like until I rip off the sheetrock

and then there will be no going back.
So just another question...I skim coat it with mud,let it cure and then apply tile with thinset like any other tile job? Modiified or unmodified? Do I have to...

I was thinking about a product like Hardi 1/4"

for several reasons.
1) ease of installation,clean job,and ability to quickly square the base up if needed. I do not trust my work with mud beyond a simple tile job.
2) in the event that someone...

Tiling over a brick fireplace.

Currently I have a fireplace that has never been used,or,rarely over the last fifty years.
The previous owner had it framed over (not code,I think) with sheetrock.
I would like to take off the...

No slope. I assume that there is a typical shower stall

or tub. All I know is that the house is on a concrete slab and the person wants a walk-in shower because they are older and no longer want to bother with doors and curbs.
Full disclosure--it is my...

Shower on concrete slab question

How do I get proper slope for a curbless,walk-in shower on a slab?
Do I need slope at all if the area is big enough?

Just passing through but I will give you my opinion--

I have come VERY close several times with WEDI but they do not distribute close to my town,except on special orders that come from New Jersey.
Out in California the dealer offered to come help me...

Looks like spooky stuff! I should have known but I just saw a link this morning for the first time and was wondering.

down the drain,as it were. That said,for now I am done with bathroom projects and could not have done any of them without the valuable advice from this forum. The article just made me think of my old...

I guess I am too much of a novice and I did not mean to

doubt the craftsmanship of Mr. Meehan. It just seems odd to me and a bit of a quick fix kind of patch. Schluter is usually very fussy about details and this article mentions nothing about bringing...

FineHomeBuilding question

See page 76 of the Novemebr issue.

How about using WEDI on the floor?

Will that accept small tiles?
I have always wanted to try the stuff but I probably never will.
Me? I am using Ditra tomorrow on my floor but the tiles are larger.
Look into WEDI.

Travertine questions

I am doing a half-bath. I will put 3/4" plywood down over what I suspect is 1/2-5/8" plywood that is attached to joists.I will use DITRA on top of that.

Does travertine pose any...

Also,I am not too wild about the gap in a backsplash

application,especially the way my wife cooks,but she made the decision.I just follow directions.I envisions sauce stains on the grout in a very short while--like the first time she makes dinner!

I am using ceramic subway style with 3/16 gap

The JB book being read to me right now says perhaps sanded might be best.

How long do I have to wait to grout?

I used Mapei Ultra Light thinset.
Should I use a sanded grout for a kitchen basksplash? What is typical for this location?
Thanks.
