Thanks Raymond.

Would you recommend something else over the Versabond then? I'm not tied to the orange store by any means, that's just the closest to me, so if something was available there, great. I've seen Mapei...

Oh no, I wasn't trying to do them at the same time. I just know one affects the other.
