Bonding flange, to Herr Schluter, means a flange to which their Kerid waterproofing membrane can be bonded.

There is no need to attempt to bond the bottom of the flange to your mud bed, although...

Welcome back, Dianna. :)

You are aware that none of the "leveling" systems do any leveling at all, yes? They are more accurately described as lippage control systems. You might still find...

According to the Intrawebs, which we know are always accurate, the average gas price in Texas is $2.19 per gallon, eight cents lower than at the same time one year ago.

What that means...

Jason, I must be confused about what you've got, too, because I can't figure out why you didn't just leave the screws you put through the Kerdi drain flange to hold it level. Not the cleanest...

If you read the specs and instructions for that product, Mike, I think you'll see that it's a coating (acrylic) rather than a stain and they specifically caution about wear on horizontal surfaces.

Without seeing the condition of the subfloor, it's difficult to say, but I'd likely agree with Jim.

1. Can't say without knowing at least the joist spacing.

2. What Jim said.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome, Lisa. :)

I'd like to know what the subfloor is before I'll hazard a guess as to what is needed or might be useful in your application.
You already have a subfloor. Ditra would be a...

Hough, the Versabond would hold your pavers in place quite well once cured, the concern is the pavers, due to their high weight to footprint ratio, would sink into the mortar that you're trying to...

Welcome back, Eric. :)

No subfloor plan is stupid. Lack of a plan might be considered stupid, but a well thought out plan is never stupid. Misguided maybe, but not stupid.

Welcome, Rae. :)

1. I dunno. Probably. Mechanically remove and replace or use a grout colorant.

2. Try whatever you like, but see #1.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome, Ryan. :)

I would not consider replacing a shower of any age without replacing the receptor, regardless the waterproofing method you elect to use.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Don't even consider it, Nick.

You can likely get some drywall shims at your local home center. Cardboard strips about 1 1/2" wide and usually 3 or 4-foot sections. They're about 1/16ths" thick....

No.

If you can't use center-matched panels because of the confined space, you'll need to add blocking for those joints as you install your square-edged panels. I generally use 5 or 6-inch rips of...

I would use the 3" only if they're of thicker gauge than the 2 1/2", which is sometimes the case. Doesn't hurt to use the 3" in any case, though, so long as you don't run your hand over the opposite...
