I have a bath mat in front of the shower and the Kerdi-heat wires are under it. It’s been on in the early AM and later PM hours daily for about 3 years. 12” or so square tile, 1/4”-ish grout...

Just my thoughts on the questions asked:
1-once the wire’s run, it very unlikely to need to be bothered with again. Through the attic would give you access to pull additional or replacement wiring...

Is that an acrylic or fiberglass tray? If so, thinset or grout never really sticks to it; and as it flexes it tends to crack the grout. I dealt with that for 20+ years until we parted ways.

It’s hard to tell any degree of lippage from my point of view in the pictures, but it does look like the grout was wiped down either too soon or too wet, and washed more of the grout out from the...

And after it hardens, you can break it out with a screwdriver at a shallow angle and a few taps with a hammer. You’d only need to do that if/where the wire goes from one sheet to the next.

You can build the bench with 2x4 or similar lumber and use KerdiBoard as you describe. I also couldn’t find the 2” stuff by me, so went with 3/4 ply for the top and above that 1/2” drywall and just...

One year follow-up in corner grouting: no cracks at all where I dug out and replaced the silicone with grout. No moldy issues either. Worked out fine for me. Just got lucky I guess.

No matter how hard they try to convince you “we do it all the time” (I’m sure they do); resist the temptation to just go along.
I had the same conversation, wound up doing myself. ...

Welcome to the forum Mike. Nothing at all wrong with wiring inside a shower wall. Supposed to be waterproof so the wire doesn’t care.
100% agree with the other Mike’s post.

100% agree with the heat shrink tubing. I’d go further. Solder the wires at the splice and slick a sliver of hot melt glue in the heat shrink tubing. When you heat the tubing (hot air gun, hair...

If it’s too late to flatten the wall a bit; you’ll be surprised how much the trim will flex. Make sure you hit the studs with the trim nails. Filling the gap that much will not pleasing at all. ...

I’d go for an epoxy there. Something like Latapoxy or one of the PC series. It’s not in an area that’s going to see much abuse. Thinset mortars don’t hold too well to the glazed tile surface.

My answer is based on reading this 120x20 cm, not mm. If mm, you’re talking about a 5”x1” range tile. I’ve not seen that in a wood look.
Use the Deflecto calculator in the blue band at the top of...

You’ll have mortar between the OSB and the Ditra, and again between the Ditra and the tile. You might be better off using the non-XL Ditra. You can always use a thicker layer of mortar (still thin,...

Maybe I’m just being picky here, but I’m thinking that 1/2 to 5/8“ of transition over a short distance of 1/2” or less is going to be a trip hazard or a toe stub risk. There’s probably some safety...

It’s what, maybe 70 inside, 45 outside? 25 degrees isn’t much of a thermal shock. The water in your wet saw tray is probably 40 degrees anyway. Go out and give it a cut. If you’re worried, warm...
