Depends who installs it. There are many approved methods and they all can be screwed up if not installed correctly. We have a lot of Kerdi experts here so you'll get all the info you'll need on that...

I see nothing wrong with the Q-round. If you're itching to replace something, I'd spend my OCD energy on the tiles at the plugs. :) But, if you can get the plugs working and looking good and the...

I would cut the silicone with a sharp knife first and then mask off the walls right at the floor so the machine doesn't scratch it. I would then re-surface the floor and apply new silicone after...

I wouldn't have paid him a dime up front unless it was for materials. And half would have been way too much. I would call him and tell him that you'll pay him for the floor but not for the work he...

I'd hold an 18 inch straight edge vertically against the wall and fill in any gaps behind it and let it set. That will help you out when tiling.

No matter if it's a floor or wall, getting the...

I'm not really seeing the problem. Usually the added thickness of the tile and substrate is needed when using a Q-round and that's what you've got. I can see that at the top (the miter piece) you...

I agree, a hammer head would do less damage to the liner than a chisel in case you hit it. Usually, once you get a hole started, it'll bust out in chunks.

The holes in the liner on the curb will...

My next question was the same as Lou's. How was the curb built? If you end up doing the curb over and want to go the extra mile, put a pitch on the top curb 2x4. That will give the liner a slope on...

As you see, some of the tiles in your sample have picture framed from the moisture. Don't be surprised if some do that on your walls after you start using the shower.

I find the Prism to be real...

Mike, you'll have to make that call. There was no reason for the Redgard over the mud, more isn't better in this case. The water will get past the Redgard at the drain since you can't effectively...

Hi Lars. I wouldn't use wood baseboard on the wall that gets tile. On the other walls, you can use tile base or wood, either one.

Good deal:tup1:

What you're talking about is a groove that's cut in the slab and metal epoxied in the groove. I'm sure that helps too. I'm talking about steel tubing (1 1/2 or 2 inch) placed under...

I would use Prism on it. It's much easier to use than any pre-mixed grout and will set up faster. The color is consistent.

Like Warren said, I would make sure the floor is flat before you start....

With the frig in place, maybe you could lay a straight 1x3 flat on top of the frig and against the cabinet. A sharp blade on an osculating tool laid flat on the 1x3would cut it. You could shim up the...

Hi Andy. I wouldn't build my shower trying to get full and half tiles. Build it to the size of the base and make do with the tiles you choose.

Wolfgang, drill a 1 1/2 inch hole (check your valve to see exactly what size you need) in a piece of plywood or 1x4 and clamp it to your slab. That way you can do away with the starter bit. I've...

My bathroom C-top is about 10 1/2 ft long and I cut 2 - 5' 3" slabs to cover it. I bought a slab from American Tile supply in Dallas that was 5' x 6 ft and was able to get both pieces out of it. Like...

It all depends. Are these the same tiles you mentioned earlier? The 4x4 and 1X1 glass tiles? If they are glued on a mesh then it's possible the moisture may make the tiles fall off. If they want to...

Ok. This is a pic of a shower I tore out a while back that had no corners. As you can see, the pan has to be cut to fold it over the top of the curb. Without corners the jamb is exposed unless he...
