Welcome back, David. :)

A plumber would be the very last kinda tradesman I'd want to fix that problem! :D

I would recommend scribing the back legs to fit the cove if necessary.

Nope, doesn't invalidate anything in the ANSI Standards nor the TCNA Handbook. It's Schluter's product and they can advertise its use in any manner they see fit.

Tile size matters not at all, grout joint width, does. Tile industry standards call for un-sanded grout in joints up to 1/8th-inch and sanded grout for joints 1/8th-inch and greater. It's the...

Put the A side up. You will have dampened the surface when you wipe it down with a damp sponge to remove any dust and that is sufficient.

If your tile guy is willing to provide the organic adhesive (Mastic) himself at his expense, a kitchen backsplash is one of the few applications where use of such product is acceptable.

John, in the tile industry (A108.01-3.2.3, Changes in level) for a change in floor elevation of 1/4" or less you need do nothing. A change of 1/4" to 1/2" requires only that you bevel the edge with...

Yes, it's at least as sound.

Keep in mind that with that foam tray your subfloor must be very near perfectly level and flat. Very, very near. Those trays may not have even the required 1/4" per...

Welcome, Paul. :)

I'd recommend against your plan. First, if you install that foam tray even before you install your wallboard you will damage it before you're done. Yes, you'll put plywood over...
