Oh, I'm pretty sure you have a pan or it would be leaking. It could be a lead pan or possibly a composite pan which looks like a sheet of roofing felt with nylon strings running thru it. Composite...

I usually make a mud screed around the shower on float day. Then it's set and ready to go the next day. I haven't set tiles the same day as floating in a long time. I'm getting slower and the showers...

Hi Barrett, welcome back. There's no way to tie in a surface membrane like Redgard to the grate you have. It's not what you want to hear but you need to install a new shower pan. To do that, the mud...

It's hard to say. I've seen hollow spots break if something is dropped on them or stepped on just the right way. I've also seen the tiles flex just enough to work the grout loose in time. Sometimes...

The masonry supply that I use also has silica sand. They may even have it in several different grits. But, it's whiter than the blasting sand. The blasting sand is light brown.

The fabric I have comes in a roll of around 3 ft wide. There might also be a roll about 6-8 inches. I have bought rolls of fabric made by Laticrete and Mercrete. I'm sure there are others. Seems like...

Yep, that's a joint I would usually grout. If you place blue tape in a straight line about 1/16 from the edge of the trim, it'll pull away clean.

Not sure but Larry may be talking about the joint between the trim and Redgard. I've used grout in that application most of the time but silicone would work just fine. I just don't see much movement...

I don't have a problem filling in 1/4 or less with thinset although they do have fillers made for this that set faster than thinset.

What kind of drain do you have installed? Is it a Kerdi drain?

Are you measuring 3/4 pitch from the finished bathroom floor to the grate on the drain?

The thinset needs to be wet when you drop the dry pack on it. That way it will stick to the slab and also to the new mud. It will be a challenge, having to pull mud in a circle makes it tough. You...

If you're going to use a paint on membrane, get the fabric that goes with it. It's necessary and adds strength. I wouldn't skimp on that.

You're right. I've torn out very few showers that had a preslope. Same thing for moisture barriers on the walls. I also replace a lot of rotten wood and have termites running all over the place.
