The tongue & groove is part of the support system. They rely on each other. Without the t&g they move way too independently.

I've seen the old non-t&g planks and they are usually in bad shape,...

Good move. I don't think that cast iron drain had any weepholes either.

Pushing up Durock on the wall past the ceiling is fine. Looks like the plywood on the subfloor might be the wrong direction?

For starters, I don't think you mean "modern" the way it's used in design which is, as Mike pointed out in post 6, clean lines and more minimal. The shower, as it currently stands, isn't a modern...

Could be the grout but usually, it isn't. It's usually movement somewhere. If the subfloor meets the requirements then it's probably somewhere in the installation. Underlayment-to-subfloor or...

Bottom line is that this isn't an easy installation and if the GC isn't confident then you should go with someone that has experience with this type of installation.

I'm on one of these subfloors right now. I'm installing an Ardex product over the top so I put in a call to my local Ardex rep and their answer was that if it has 1/2 inch ply over it and it meets...

Ardex FL is a cement-based grout and can still benefit from a grout sealer.

I think the perforated ones let more water through. Some manufacturers will have certain ones that conform to ADA standards and those ones have to have a good amount of flow.

But if you make the...

I do the same as Paul and Peter above. 2 inch foam cut down and installed on edge. I don't have any videos of installing the foam but I use Wedi and glue it with their sealant.

All of the systems work it's just a matter of installing them properly.

It's probably best to stick with one manufacturer and use their entire system. Whether that's Schluter, Laticrete, Wedi,...

Personally, I like the 2 inch foam for curbs but it's just a personal choice.

What I would do is build your shower pan the way that you want it with Kerdi fabric. Run the fabric up the walls at...

It won't make much difference, but I like to flip the tile upside-down and measure the height that way. Sometimes you're measuring the sloped shoulder of the tile when you have it face-up.

I would recommend a lightweight thinset for what you are doing. It's not that it can't be done without but I think it'll be a little bit easier. Laticrete has Multimax light and Trilite. The Multimax...

The uncoupling mats are the way to go. Schluter has a good mat but, in my opinion, they have way too many ridiculous rules when it comes to spacing the wires that I won't use it.

From the photos, it's apparent that your shower is not a well built shower. But, like CX said in post 2, that also doesn't mean that it's leaking.

It could be water but the crack in the grout, raised tiles, crack in the curb, and the drywall crack above would make me think it's the house moving.

You very well might have a structural issue...

A laser works great for leveling in a floor if you want it level. A lot of times you might just want it flat as opposed to flat and level. If you want flat and out-of-level then a laser won't do you...
