I assume you're calling the crown moulding "trim". If you're tiling the walls up to the crown then you're better off using caulk there. Still, over time the wood might shrink enough to crack the...

Something I started doing a couple years ago is to sloping the top 2x4. Rip the 2x4 and make it wedged shaped or shim under it to put a pitch on it.

Hi DC. You asked for a suitable primer so I gave you the name of two. But a good modified thinset will bond fine to the porcelain tiles. I'd probably use the primer but it's not necessary.

Or two people you found on the internet. Ditch the mastic for the wet areas. Although, I will use it on a kitchen backsplash when using ceramic tiles.

Hi Dave. I don't like it but some installers like Denshield and use it all the time. If you use it, just make sure it's installed correctly. I wouldn't let the sheet rocker install anything in the...

Travis, when removing leaking showers, we see the most damage at the curb so it's important to make sure it's done right. I was hoping to see your curb and how the liner folds over it. What is on the...

Can you give us a pic or two of your pan liner installation?

You've probably thought of this but if these panels go wall to wall and floor to ceiling, hopefully the shower is open enough to get the panels in there. And, if there's a piece for the ceiling, most...

Yes, add a screw between the nails you now have. Like Dan said, pilot holes would be a good idea.

You might call Ardex and see if they have any ideas. I can't see how you'll ever get the epoxy grout out of the rough textured surface but I've been wrong before.

I usually let the tiles on the inside of the arch and jamb over hang the tiles on the inside shower wall. Depending on the width of the door, the tiles on the inside of the arch may need to be small.

The wood is the problem, it swells with moisture. I would have made the whole thing out of masonry.

You can try bonding the top surface of the V-caps with thinset and the front with a couple beads...

Sometimes the slab is poured too rough and not flat enough for a tile installation. Then they pour gypsum over it since it's like soup and self levels. I've also heard of using watered down Hydorban...

Hugh, I can't tell from your pic, was the concrete poured to the right height for a thinset application and still finish out flush with the patio and driveway?
