Never heard of any kind of metal in a subfloor make-up. I'd want to find out what that is, and it's purpose for being there.

I would use a membrane for the tub-to-wall junctions. A 4" strip of Kerdi or similar membrane would work, one edge on the cement board and the other to the tub flange.

Same on the bottom and...

I'd probably send those back if they weren't able to be cleaned up easy enough.

Is the window frame metal, wood, or plastic?

What waterproofing are you using on the walls?

If that's the case, then I wouldn't bother with a membrane at all.

You mean they said the unmodified mortar won't stick to the porcelain? Well, many tile have been installed that way. If done properly, it'll work.

Welcome back, Paul. :)

You can't really seal it, as such, bit rather cover it to manage the moisture.

Ditra would be a good choice, with the seams sealed with Kerdi. I would probably have...

That's a possibility. If you reset the tiles and see cracking grout and tile later on, you'll know it wasn't just a poor bond that caused the original problem.

When resetting those tile, put a skim coat of mortar on the back of each tile, in addition to what's combed out on the floor, to get the maximum bond strength between the tile and mortar.

All of our hard work is behind us....

No more mixing mortar, no wet saw, no spacers, no leveling system... it's all done with staples. What used to take days is now done in a couple of hours.

And all for $1.68 a square foot!

Treated boards will shrink as they dry out, so if you leave 1/2" gap, it'll be between 3/4-1" when it's done.

I'd demo the top and outside of the curb to expose the wood and check for damage. Then go from there.

It's a shame this wasn't a concrete or mud curb. :shake:
