Mark, you really need to ask your shower door man. I believe you'll need a piece of metal going across the top from one end to the other. Just make sure he doesn't plan to drill into your curb. If...

I disagree with our friend, Joe. If my liner failed the flood test, I'd fix the liner. In my opinion, Redgard doesn't salvage it. I just don't see Redgard having a positive seal against the grate.

This would be a problem with every other row. Is your glass going up high enough to hide the problem near the top?

I would usually take it out to the edge of the granite but you may have to hold it back. You already have to lower half of the shower tiled so there's no turning back. You can see the importance in...

The day after mudding a shower floor, I can drop a tall cup of water on the mud and it disappears from the surface in two seconds. It soaks right into the deck mud. Try it sometime the day after...

Something else, if the water flow going down your drain ever slows down or stops up lower than the grate, water will back up into the mud bed.

I agree. Home Depot has paper drop cloths, I would cover the whole tub and tape it off. I would also cover the floor well. And, the tiles better not have any crazing, hairline cracks or chips. The...

I agree with watering the foundation. If we get enough rain, I don't water mine much but during those real dry summers, to water it enough probably takes a hundred dollars a month in water. Even...

You may very well wreck some stuff, maybe even a tile or two. I don't know of an easier way, maybe some else does. I would take it slow and easy, don't go gang busters on it.

I would cut out the Redgard and remove the 1/2 inch piece and replace it with 1/4 inch. I know, it's more work than you wanted to do but that's how I would fix it.

Edit, Jerry beat me to it. :)

You can eliminate the grinding if the paint will come up with a razor blade scraper. The grinding Paul advised is going to be the fastest and easiest way to remove the paint.

It all depends how thick of a patch you need. If it just a small spot, say less than 1/4 inch deep, use thinset. If it's deeper than that then use a thin layer of thinset and add more mud while the...

So, I assume you still have to remove some of the hardwood. I would use filler to fill the lower area to get the whole surface flat. Once it's set, stick the whole thing with thinset.
