Maybe I'm missing something but I don't see how you're going to hide a pipe in your mud bed and get the water to run up hill up and over the curb. Also, there shouldn't be any CBU on the curb....

Do some measuring and try and get the biggest pieces possible with the least amount of cuts. If the back wall is 5 ft wide then run the sheets horizontal on that wall first. It might be best to run...

I would bust more concrete out. You'll need to pack more dirt in the bottom once the drain is in place and then more concrete to tie into the slab. That helps support it all. And, like Kevin said,...

Yes, tell the pros and cons. I've used it maybe 10 times, mainly because the homeowner already had it bought and on the job. A lot seems to depend on the tile you have installed. I agree with Shawn,...

I rip a fire brick 4 or 5 times and it helps expose fresh diamond to the surface of the blade.

I don't own a big one but the score and snap cutters have come a long way over the years and from...

I've heard of installing pebble sheets an inch or two apart and filling in with single pieces but never with hex tiles. When installing hex tiles on a sheet, I like to lay a straight edge down and...

The only problem I've had was with hex tiles that were cut slightly bigger on some sheets and in no way would tie in with other sheets even though they had the same lot number. These were from Floor...

What size blade and what saw are you using? Is the table running square and true? Sometimes the back edge of the blade chips the tiles as you push the tiles thru, especially if it's not running true...

Hi Dana, welcome. Where have you looked? This hex shower floor is porcelain, I believe from Daltile.

I'd probably remove the tiles on the edge and clean the metal. Maybe grind and smooth the stone edge and maybe paint the edge. I think the tiles will fall off again if you stick them back.

I bet they'll run their stone walls right over that void. In that situation, I wouldn't like the pan liner running up behind the Denshield. The liner folds will bulge the Denshield in the corners...

Whenever I run into this problem, which isn't very often, I try to talk the homeowners into adding a row pencil rails above and below the thicker tiles. Or you can add Kerdi under the field tiles....

Apparently the stove hides the granite edge if it's not polished. I would cut the edge using a vacuum as much as possible. It's still going to be a mess. Or, remove one side and take it outside to...

Sorry, I guess I'm missing something, I don't quite understand the problem. I wouldn't stop the tiles at the edge of the tub but would run it out beyond the tub so it will go on down to the floor....

I doubt that silicone will do much good, I would remove as much of it as you can. Clean up with a rag and Acetone.

Yep, for a kitchen you might look into V-cap's that fold down over the edge.

In my kids bathroom I installed mud caps on the top and also on the front edge. 40 years and 4 kids later they have...

The bottom plate (2x4 that connects to the floor) of your half-wall should continue in one piece under the curb. That will be stronger than making the half-wall and adding 3- 2x4's later for the...
