That's not a grout I use but I would let the grout get firm in the joint. How fast the tiles absorbs the moisture in the grout will determine how long that takes. I'd say 20-30 minutes would be about...

What grout do you plan to use? 30 minutes might be too long to wait for some grouts.

Tim, you might have to post a pic of your drain and tile so we can see exactly what you're doing.

I've never used that brand but if it's a base coat and finish coat all in one then I think you could tile over it without a problem. I usually want to stick a scrap piece of tile to it and let it set...

If the tiles have a cushioned (rounded) edge then the grout joint will finish out wider than the spacer you use because the grout will come up over the rounded edge. Looking at your pic, those are...

Mastic will work but I would probably use white non sag thinset like Pro-lite. Thumbs up on using wedges. For irregular or rustic tiles, probably 1/8 joints. I butter most tiles like that. :tup1:

I want my thinset to bond well to the porcelain and modified is what the tile manufacturers recommend. Just about any thinset will lock into the Ditra, it's just a matter of drying time. I don't...

It might be worth trying a sharp scraper. Home Depot has 4 inch wide scrapers in the paint dept. I just fear it might want to dig into the Wedi surface and damage it. If it would take off most of it,...

I've noticed several Wendys restaurants with tile planks on the outside. I haven't watched them install it. I assume over CBU.

You might use tape and thinset on the transition like you would a corner. Maybe that will help stabilize the Hardi, not sure.

Yep, I always tell customers that I don't like the slab straight thru into the shower as a seat. That needs to be a separate piece that has pitch. Like Dan said, put the seam right under the glass.

I wouldn't patch it in. Since it's a small floor, I'd try to talk her into retiling the whole thing. Especially since it's stuck right to the wood and some of the wood is rotten.

I can't ever remember seeing a flange on the leg like that. I agree with furring out the wall there that has the insulation showing if it's possible.

No, use one or the other. Go ahead and use the Ditra since you have it but I think the paint on membrane would have been easier to work with.

He is probably talking about a certificate of occupancy, which means all the necessary inspections have been made. Correct me if I'm wrong.
