It's really hard to say what you'll find until you start the tear out. I would look for cement board nailed on the curb which we find to be the norm these days. Keep us posted.

Lenny, I would go with #2, make the first 4-5 inches out of solid black, leaving out the pencil rail in that area.

John, I've used bullnose tiles that matched pretty close that didn't have the wood grain look.

Glenn, have you got a link to the drain you used? I'm trying to figure out exactly how you have the Redgard tied into the linear drain.

When you mud it back, add just a little more water in the mix and when you are finished, use a flat trowel to slick it down on the surface. You can go over it lightly with a vacuum the next day but...

You can make the speed bump what ever size you want. The only purpose for it is to keep the door from dragging the bath floor. Plus, the speed bump gives you a little more pitch in case it's needed....

Like Matt, I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking at.

Measurements have to be exact when trying to do that. Sometimes I'll leave the inside of the niche bigger than need be and mud it in after the...

Is he using any type of edging? Maybe bullnose, quarter round, metal profile or even pencil rail can be made to work.

Lenny, it took me a few minutes to find your miter. I guess you're talking about inside the niche where you didn't miter the tile far enough. Since it's already bonded, I'd use a Dremel or similar...

Pour a little vinegar over a splotchy grout joint and let it sit there about 5 minutes. Then scrub it well with a scrub brush and rinse it with clean water. Let it dry and see if it looks any better.

As long as the glue that holds the pieces together isn't water soluble, I use the wet saw. If you can't use the wet saw, make a little work table so the tiles can lay flat and draw a straight line...

Even though it makes a nice neat look, baseboards don't have to be removed. It is a good idea to either leave the joint open and add shoe mold or caulk the joint against the base.

I like having a speed bump across the door so the rubber door sweep won't drag the bath floor. 1/4-3/8 is all it needs. Have you thought about running a long tile across the doorway (for the door to...

I would want a straight shot from the drain to the bath floor (or speed bump). Is there a flange at the drain for the tile to flush up with?
