They might be Mexican hand painted tiles. I have no idea who might sell them these days.

If that's what it is, it's not a very good choice for a kitchen countertop.

Hi Nick. Sorry to hear about your floor problem. I probably would have raised the floor to the correct height before tiling or let it run out of level. It depends on what other problems it would...

It might be just a matter of replacing the grout at the wall. But, if the tiles are tilted upward, you'll need to remove those tiles and the grout around them and replace them.

Do you know how the...

I didn't realize Customs has a Flexbond LFT but maybe this is something new. We always get excellent bond if it's Flexbond or Versabond.

Are you saying there's tar paper behind the mudded walls? Or are you assuming there is? Many of those old mud showers have the lath fastened right to the studs. Then a scratch coat and the finish...

I'd use my phone to remove it. Call the installer back and invite him to come remove the haze. He shouldn't have left it on there. :)

What Bubba said. He will have much better control with an oscillating tool. I would do anything it takes to avoid having to remove a tile.

I agree with the others, no way I would put a cap on it. They have given you the bathrooms which shows they trust you. They probably realize that tiling a ceiling like that is out of the ordinary and...

It's hard to tell looking at that picture. Dry pack isn't as rich and wet as the wall mud and is usually a different shade of gray after it dries. That looks like maybe the same mud was used on the...

The mud in this pic shows what a scratch coat looks like. While the mud is wet, we scratch it with a small hand held rake. The rough surface makes the next coat grab hold.

You mentioned in post 22 that dry pack wasn't used. Even if the weep holes were wide open, using concrete or other dense mud will cause the mud bed to become saturated. I've seen it on several...

They do make an off set drain but I'm not sure if that's what you're talking about. Explain if you don't mind.

To use planks, the floor will need to be flat, yet pitched toward the drain. Usually...

Going by the book, it's kinda thin for a bonded mud bed but I've done it many times before. You can make it as level or out of level as you want.

You could remove the screws and Hardie and patch the liner. Still not a good situation but the pan liner glue does have a real good bond when patched correctly.

Yep, I lived in Anaheim back in the late 80's. I'm familiar with the hot mop odor, stinks up the whole neighborhood. :) Sorry to hear about your shower problems.

You need to get rid of the MDF. What's under the MDF? Tell us more about how the floor is built. Check your floor framing with the Deflecto that's in the dark blue bar above.

I doubt the foam is as solid sounding as a mud bed. I wouldn't consider a hollow sound a failure unless you see it flex too. If there's no movement, I'd leave it alone until it fails, which it may...

Regardless of what you do with this piece, I would go ahead and buy a box of tiles in case you need another one or two in the future. What will you do in 2-3 years when this tile is discontinued ?

I'd make them like your alternative choice. The main thing is to keep the blade away from the edge 1/16 like he shows. Practice on a couple first, it's not hard to get the hang of it.
