Hi Elise, the others here have probably installed tiles on Masonite about as many times as I have, Zero. I'm not sure how the Masonite will react to thinset or mastic. I do know that Masonite doesn't...

From my experience, the cost of the tile doesn't seem to have anything to do with it. Some of the more expensive tiles are warped just as much as the cheaper tiles. He really needs to get the walls...

Hi Adrian, welcome.

1. You can use Ditra over a concrete slab but I would rather use a cheaper material like Redgard or Auqa Defense. I do use Ditra over plywood floors quite a lot though. I...

Yes it would. Epoxy grout is usually pretty consistent in color so hopefully the patches will match okay.

Of course you want some type of moisture barrier behind the tiles in the shower but you can stick the tiles right to the sheetrock in the dry areas like the wainscoating and back splash.

A pic taken a little closer to one of the white areas would help. Yes, not only with glass tiles, with any tiles the thinset should be scraped and washed about 1/2 - 2/3rd's of the way down.

It's hard to tell for sure but it looks like thinset that was left mashed up in the joints.

I've never used that type of base and drain. Does the top grate screw down far enough to be flush with the tiles? Must be real thin. :scratch:

The pics may help. I've never had epoxy grout shade out. I would find out exactly which grout was used.

He must have really left a mess on the tiles. I would get the tiles clean first. I wouldn't want to be washing chunks of thinset with my grout water and possibly getting it in my fresh grout.

I'd probably lean towards using the 1/2 inch notch for everything. If your floor isn't very flat, the larger tiles may not have good enough coverage in some places with the 3/8.

With such small joints, it's okay to leave out a little bit of part C (the powder) if you think it needs to be a thinner mix. If you cool part A and B like Jim mentioned, it will make it thicker...

Yeah, I've seen those lines in real wood before. Looks good to me. Looks better than tiles that have the same identical pattern and print.

If you have any left over tiles, I would look through them to see if there's any like that.

If it's only thinset haze, wipe it with a clean rag. If it's still on the tiles, I'd scrub it off and let it dry out before grouting.
