Ugh. That’s always one of those things where you say to yourself “I should have…”. Anyway, tearing it all off (which is going to mess up the Kerdi) is the “ideal” option, if we lived in an ideal...

You don’t mention what the floor under the tile is made of. Moisture retention in a slab is different than a wood floor. Depending on how long the leak was going on; the subfloor, even the joists,...

I wouldn’t (didn’t) grout the tile/wood junction. With my hardwood floor, one can see the gaps open and close between boards here and there as the seasonal humidity changes - confirming that the...

I had about 3/4” difference. One of the local lumber places had various oak trim pieces and moldings. This was a threshold with a bit of a ramp on both sides. Ripped it down to remove the ramp...

So long as you don’t have an unsupported corner of the glass; whichever mounting works, is secure, and suits the aesthetics, should be good. My only concern about the “wait and see” with the...

Yes, I only used the epoxy for the mounting brackets. The screws were used only as studs, the holes were made a bit wider than the threads so there’d be no “bite”. The epoxy filled the holes and...

You really don’t want ANY motion in the drain, regardless of what tile you’re using.
I’m not grasping why we’re looking at Kerdi inside the drain. We should be just looking down at the drain trap...

I’d have to put in a vote against it. I had used a similar (if not the same) product in my shower before the remodel. Tried various things to seal the plane change between the tile and fiberglass...

I had a similar situation cutting 24x36 tiles on my dinky 7” table wet saw. I made some table extensions out of scrap lumber and had no problems with nonsupported areas of the tile. Cuts came out...

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...

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...

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...
