Late discovery that walls aren’t square

New problem. As an amateur it never occurred to me that that room wasn’t actually square :bonk: I knew things were off a bit but...

Thanks. I have sufficient board, assuming no screwups. I was just concerned that the 12” wide strip next to the wet wall attached to just 2 studs would be carrying all the weight of the 12x24 tiles,...

Kerdi Board bathtub surround concerns

Hi all, back here about 15 odd years after last bathroom reno, using Schluter, that some of you advised me on. It’s still holding up and looking good so no problems there. Although I still see the...

Exactly. There's no way to get access without tearing down cabinets. It was a concern back when I did the refurb but there were no other viable options for placing the shower.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Kevin, I delayed addressing this as I hoped to be doing a kitchen refurb that would have given me access from the backside, however that is likely still a good bit...

Repair kerdi after opening up wall

I'm hoping for the best but fearing the worst. A few years ago, with much advice from folks on this forum I refurb'd my bathroom. The shower slowly degraded in performance to the point where it's...

Laying Ditra over heat mat

I'm probably going to get slapped upside the head for even suggesting this but I think the instructions that Schluter provide for laying Ditra over a heating map are 'deficient'.
If you follow their...

Hi Ed, I think maybe the latter. So I'm putting more effort into scraping off any excess.

Thanks all. Still feeling stupid about it but at least there's seems to be a reasonable resolution.

Thanks John, hopefully it works out OK and I can move on.

Incidentally, I said that I was going to use Hydroment Singleflex on top of Kerdi. That was a typo. The Singleflex is going under Ditra...

Ceiling and hole for fan

As I'm Kerdi'ing the ceiling, and I have a fan in the ceiling, how secure will the edge of the Kerdi that is cut around the fan be? Edges like this seem to me to be likely to be the weakest area, so...

How do you folks know the correct consistency of thinset to use and when...
