What Jessie said, something will have to be done about the third wall. May even have to fur out the wall to fit the tub.

I've never installed one, Teddy but I believe epoxy is used to bond it.

I think he's concerned about having enough pitch as it is. He could make a short curb. The shower foot print is already established. A narrow curb wouldn't help give more inside space but would...

I agree with the others but your original question was about the joints staying wet around the drain and to the seat. That's caused from the surface applied membrane on top of the mud, not letting...

It's been a long time since I've seen a GC that actually cares or knows what's going on. GC's trust their subs to run the job most of the time, which is a disaster waiting to happen.

I agree, the Flexcolor works well but it's not as easy to use as the Prism or Permacolor. It's a whole different animal.

Hi Deb, welcome. It depends what the marble tiles look like. Can you post a pic of what you have? Usually, the cement board would be best for 3x6 tiles.

First thing I would do is look at Custom's and Laticrete's color charts and see if you can find a color that you like. I use a lot of Custom's Prism and it's supposed to be fast setting although it...

For years I've used yellow fire bricks to expose the diamond on blades. 4-5 rips usually is enough to make a big difference.

The center line should be 18 1/2 from each side wall. Start with a grout joint in the center and that should give you cuts between 6 and 7 inches on each side.

I like to make a mud/tile speed bump across the door way (say 3/8 inch high) for the door to seal to. You don't want the rubber that's on the door to drag the bathroom floor every time you open it.

I wouldn't have a problem sticking it right to the sheetrock if it has no texture or paint. The sheetrock will support it and thinset sticks like crazy to raw sheetrock.

Sometimes the stones need to be buttered out some. Thinset doesn't butter out as well as fat mud. But fat mud doesn't stick as well as thinset, so sometimes we use them together.
