What Justin said. Why cut a separate piece for the curb when you don't have to.

I had a plumber tell me the other day that he uses the X-15 glue between the drain and liner instead of silicone. I...

It really depends on how much "slight deflection" is. Did you staple tar paper (or poly) and lath to the plywood before placing the preslope? Not sure if that is part of the problem or not. Lots of...

I'd leave it as is. It's behind the plate, moisture shouldn't ever get back there. I'm trying to figure out what type sealer you're asking about. :scratch:

I don't doubt what you're saying but to get the right thickness, you have to lay it on thick. Like Cx has said, it's not like painting your bedroom walls. At this point, we can hope it's enough.

I noticed the same thing as Bubba. The Redgard is supposed to be about credit card thickness. It takes a couple pretty thick coats to achieve that.

You might can beat on tiles that are on a concrete slab or walls that are on a mud bed but I would still cut the tile out the best you can. The less beating you do, the better. Cutting the tile...

Like James mentioned, I'd use a grinder with a vacuum hose next to it. You should be able to cut thru the tile without going too deep.

I would stop the preslope mud back about 6-8 inches from the drain and use thinset from that point to nothing at the drain. Avoid the little step at the drain.

If your mud at the drain wants to crumble the next day, remove it from that area where it's too thin and use straight thinset. Thinset is good from 0 to about 1/4 inch thick.

For the curb and mud walls, I like the Qwikcrete scratch and brown base coat. It might be hard to find. I’ve been told that any Home Depot can order it. Or, you can use 4 parts of all purpose sand, 1...

I'd bust the mud off he curb and call the first go around practice. You can try using a rub brick to carve it down. Really depends on how hard your mud is. If it's as hard as it should be, it won't...

A full curb is noticeable, you'll see it and know to step over it. A very small step is harder to see and unexpected.

I was thinking the same as Jim, I've seen tubs that didn't have a tile flange and if water works it's way under the caulk/grout, it will leak.
