Joe, we're not suggesting the plywood in lieu of the CBU, rather in addition to it. The plywood would be part of your structural subfloor; the CBU is your tile substrate. Different materials for...

I've never heard of it, Linda. New, perhaps? Just recently available in this country, perhaps? Dunno. I've not even heard of Litokol, the apparent manufacturer. Appears to be exclusively...

I've never seen such instructions for the curb, either, Justin. Guess it's a way to "fasten" the liner to the curb area, but I've never though anything necessary other than the metal lath folded...

Who approves that, Justin?

Only adhesive I know of for PVC liners is Oatey's X15 (https://www.oatey.com/products/oatey-lovoc-x15-pvc-solvent--222110718). I'm sure there are other brands, but I'm...

Welcome, Michael. :)

I trust this is the cleaning product you used? Sentinel 747 (https://www.senpro.com/2018/04/26/747-plus-adhesive-remover/)

Only thing that looks wrong to my eye is the thickness, Marc. Unlike the pre-slope, the top mortar bed is designed to be porous. Traditional shower receptors are a water-in, water-out design and...

Mini, for what is called a "modular" layout (what you have depicted there), the pattern will work only if the manufacturer has sized the tiles for such a layout. And there is only one grout joint...

Welcome, Erika. :)

If you'll type marble shower into our Advanced Search feature and read a bit, you'll find you're not alone.

The reason your shower floor is sloped toward the drain is so that...

Welcome, Marc. :)

We've known folks to place a pre-slope without the requisite metal lath and have the shower survive. Not the best idea, though.

I'm curious why you've placed your final...

Nix the idea of using Ditra, then, I'm afraid.

You didn't indicate the size of your tiles. Ditra has a minimum requirement of 2"x2" tiles.

You can guess at your joist structure if you like, but having had a 1914 ceramic tile installation in...

Welcome, Grace. :)

What is the application for these tiles (wall, floor, backsplash, other)?

What is the intended substrate?

I think your proposed installation might be problematic.

But only if you never need to justify the method after failure.

Again, Stew, the joists were 2 and better before you ripped them down from whatever size they were to begin with. They're still Fir, of course, but not necessarily 2 and better.
