You might find a broken sheet of cbu at the store that they'll discount or if it's really bad, give you. What may cost more is to buy a box of the screws to attach it that would need to go into the...

You will want some Kerdiband and probably some KerdiFix to seal the joints and screwholes. The KerdiFix is good to bond the bottom of the board and band to the top of your receiver and maybe around...

A cement-based, white grout will not be as white when it starts, nor stay that way. Between an epoxy and an acrylic, I think (do not know) that the acrylic should stay white with the possible...

The sand in the matrix of a sanded grout is typically harder than cement by itself depending, of course, on the proportions. For example, deck mud is not stronger than a much leaner, concrete mix...

I'd probably cut the existing board out to the joists, and screw the two layers needed to bring it back in depth. Thinset would just make things a bit thicker, and have potential voids beneath it,...

A bonded mudbed would be your least expensive, and maybe easiest choice to raise the level where you want it. With the volume you need, you might want to rent a cement mixer. Over a slab, I don't...
