I think those gaps are of approximately zero concern, 'specially in the context of the rest of that floor construction. Any failure of the tile installation is far more likely to be due to an...

Welcome, Ryan. :)

I'd also like to know what sort of areas in a shower would still have exposed RedGard after four years. Product manufacturer would not want you should do that.

Welcome back, Jillian. It'll help if you'll add that geographic location, and narrow it down a bit, to your User Profile. Climate's a bit different in San Diego than in Redding, eh? :)

It's OK with me, Sarah, but I own no stock in your insurance company. And I assure you they know exactly what's required for your installation. Problem is they won't look it up or tell you that...

I'd blow the dust out of the holes with compressed air, Mike, and set my anchors. It requires so little air that a fella could justify buying an aerosol can of air or some sort of cleaning product...

Welcome, Sarah. :)

You wanna be careful with that. While it might seem like any non-flamable material set over your wood flooring might be sufficient for a wood-burning stove installation, you'll...

Welcome, Lisa. :)

The part of the curb top that needs to be properly sloped to drain is the waterproofing layer, not only the decorative tile covering. Adding another layer of tile or stone on...

Welcome, Susanne. :)

Some photos would almost certainly be helpful here.

Do you know just what the "back board" material is? Some sort of cementitious backer unit (CBU) perhaps? Each of those...

The tile industry standards call for a flexible sealant in the tile joint in all places where the backing material makes a change in plane. That would apply to your wall/floor junction.

With a direct bonded waterproofing membrane I'd give your chances of a successful repair of that Jolly trip something a little shy of zero.

You can try whatever you had in mind with the grinder,...

If you'll have just one more of those large tiles on top of what we see, I'd cut them to fit the ceiling.
