Welcome to the forum, Tom. :wave:

Yes.

But I’d highly suggest you take a hard look at how flat (or not) your wall is. With tiles that size, they like to teeter-totter, rather than lie in a...

Yeah, Mike, with their seat sticking out so far, that's way too much leverage for an anchor. I can see why they want it anchored to a stud.

If you've never seen or tried a wing-it, I'd recommend...

Thanks for the suggestions. And have you seen "Forged In Fire"? I always thought it would be cool to do some blacksmithing, so I like that show. :nod: A lot of the series I've been watching are...

Since you’ve got all Mapei stuff going so far, I’d call Tech Support to see what they say about that decorative coating on that back of that glass.

From your description of “settling” into the seams, it’s sounds like it was a tad too loose. But there’s no doubt that a perfectly mixed thinset mortar will shrink as it dries and leave an indented...

I just looked at the latest Hardiebacker floor install instructions. They do allow 8” O.C. spacing at the perimeter, just as Pail has done.

I don’t believe this was always the case. I’ve avoided...
