Hi Ity, :)

I would rough up the exposed cultured marble with sand paper, use a tack cloth to remove all dust particles and hit it with thinset and tile. :)

P.S. No warranty from this end. :)

Hi Don, :)

It looks like you used black grout or a very dark gray (charcoal). I gave up using black grout early on in my career. It stains everything it touches.

Also, the type of tile/stone...

I'm with you, Tom. I would run the base as I went. That way everything sets up for grouting at the same time. :)

Hi Ode, :)

We have never updated the book, but it's still very useful. The two main things that have been added are Kerdi-board and the foam floors. The Kerdi process is still the same.

Hi Waleed, :).

It looks good to me. The foam floor must be absolutely level, though. There is not much slope to the drain. Check your subfloor for level.

Hi Bobby, :)

Just my opinion: I would use a border at the bottom and a surface bullnose at the top if you can find matching pieces.

I'm sorry, Jeremy, but the liner must go up the inside, over the top all the way to the outside edge. The front of the curb is not important and doesn't need waterproofing. You system places the...

Hi HZ; :)
Does your state require licensing for contractors? If so you can contact the registrar for contractors. They will take action whether your guy is licensed or not.

I agree with the...

Hi Jeremy, :)

If I understand you correctly I wouldn't recommend your system. Seems you've got a liner on the bottom, then another waterproof membrane on top of the mud, creating a wonderful trap...

I've used quite a few Fernco connectors in my long years of plumbing and tile setting, but that was back in the days before almost everything we use was made in China. I won't be surprised if you...

Hey Lou, :)

Looks like a small (seeping) leak. No plumbing anywhere near? Can it be coming from the room above?

Hi Dave, :)

You might try scrubbing with a neutral tile cleaner -- nothing with acid in it.

Hi TR, :)

The Schluter approved way would be to patch it with another layer of Kerdi or Kerdi Band. 2 in. overlap all the way around. :)

Hi Jack, :)

Curious. Do you need to cover the entire floor or just the low spots?
