Customs made a product named Semco back in the 90's, maybe the 80's too. It was an anti-fracture membrane made for interiors only. This was before Redgard.

Hi Steve, keep in mind this isn't something we usually do. We would gut the whole thing and start over.

In the areas where the tiles were removed from the mud, you can add a layer of thinset...

Nice mud job. I like to rub the mud down with a rub brick and then vacuum the walls real well. When rubbing, feel for any humps that might need to be flattened out.

You can do it any way you want but I normally get all the tiles up and then have the slab pieces installed afterward. I think hanging over 3/4 inch is fine for the seat and curb.

I doubt my price would be 8 k but could easily be 6. Keep in mind that most of the time, the cheap guys throw them in so fast that they make more money per day than the high priced guys.

What Bubba said. Make sure you're getting good water flow on both sides of the blade. Sometimes the hose on one side will get partially blocked causing that side of the blade to wear more.

If you already have the shower floor installed, no need for a ledger board. Start at the bottom and start tiling.

Scott, I know it's frustrating. I usually use the small 6 inch roller (3/8 nap) and I dip the whole roller into the Redgard. I don't wipe any off, I then roll it on the wall covering about 1 1/2 to 2...

Hi Patrick, I guess the concrete could slowly erode enough to create a little dust. I could be wrong but I think that your tires are bringing in most of it. And, when it rains, the water your tires...

If you're wanting full tiles at the ceiling, lay out enough tiles on the floor with spacers added, then get a measurement of that distance. If the ceiling is not level, figure from the highest point,...

I found a pic of a penny round bath we did last year. I spent more time getting the walls and floor as flat as possible than I did setting the tiles. I like to set the sheets against a straight edge...

Cute little dog but I'll pass. I think Cx is looking for a dog.

It might be worth making a sample board using scrap tiles. Grout and seal them.

I'd probably hold the tile back from the edge a half inch and I wouldn't worry about the weight breaking the tiles loose. I agree with you, good thinset coverage is important.

Hi Dani, I think the sealer interfering with the bond was when someone mentioned dipping the whole tile in the sealer. That won't happen if only the tops of the tiles are sealed.

Laz can explain but I think you could just trade ends (turn the tile around, not over) to finish the cut. Maybe I'm missing something.

Brian, you shouldn't need to have the experience and knowledge, that's why you hired them. There's a lot of things wrong with this shower.
