I don’t think that’s the way you should go. Screwing just into a wood ring is going to have problems down the road and the jumbo or double wax ring is more likely to blow out especially if it’s...

It’s a stock metal Schluter trim. They’ve got a pretty wide selection of colors. Just happened to be close enough.

Scott, I’d have to agree with Dan in that you’ll always notice an outside raw edge. Even if no one else does; you will. Just the way we are with our projects. My vote is to use a trim. I used...

Fibosystem - anyone heard of it?

Spotted an ad for this stuff. https://fibosystemusa.com
Looks to just be wall panels, grooved edges, and sealant. Every step is pretty much “apply sealant”. I’m always a bit leery when a very...

Yup. Not hard to do. Looks like you’ll have to...

I was in HD today picking up some hardware and noticed a fresh load of 2x4. We’re $7.94 EACH! I had to do a double take. A few years ago when I was doing some remodeling they were $.88. I know...

You can install right over new drywall without any special prep. Maybe just moisten it up a bit with a damp sponge so it doesn’t suck too much out of your thinset. If the paint on the painted wall...

Shifting back from the Redguard thickness thing…



Best or not, the method I used was making up a “story stick”. Used a long piece if lath (1 1/2 x 1/4 or so by 7’) and laid out the tiles and...

Usually, I just sit back and watch on threads like this. The piece quoted above went “ping!” in my mind. I’m not sure how the tile store is carrying any practical liability. Even if everything...

I’ve had luck with BonAmi and Cerama-Brite. Both have effective abrasives without scratching. If you have a spare piece of tile you can use it as a test piece.

Yep, Quadec can be used exactly as you’re proposing. I’ve used Rondec (rounded version of the same stuff) just like that. Makes for a nice edge.
It may be just the angle or temporary nature of the...

I had to go a bit further and dig out about 1/8” or so of the plywood to get the hot lead connector to sit flush with the DitraHeat. Been in operation 2+ years; never had any reason to give it a...

Is that an acrylic or fiberglass tray? If so, thinset or grout never really sticks to it; and as it flexes it tends to crack the grout. I dealt with that for 20+ years until we parted ways.

And after it hardens, you can break it out with a screwdriver at a shallow angle and a few taps with a hammer. You’d only need to do that if/where the wire goes from one sheet to the next.

No matter how hard they try to convince you “we do it all the time” (I’m sure they do); resist the temptation to just go along.
