You're better off removing the whole thing and starting over. That's the only way I'd do it if you happened to call me. I doubt you wanted to hear that so you probably need to cut lath to fit those...

I helped a friend on a 7000 sq ft patio. He had it planned to mud some places up 7 inches thick. I found a tiller for sale. His helpers thanked me for buying that tiller.

We leveled up this old patio so they could make a sun room. It's about 3 inches on the left and an inch or so against the house. Bonded with Versabond.

That's the key. Don't try to butter up penny rounds or any other mosaics. It takes more time but get the surface of the floor like you want it and let it set before you spread any thinset. Especially...

Is there a moisture barrier (usually tar paper or poly) and wire (usually lath or welded wire) stapled to the plywood?

In the areas I see in your picture, I'd use a filler or patching material....

I think you would have been better off to use cement board with Redgard over it.

I've never tried one waterproof membrane over another but you could possibly have bonding issues. If you want more...

Many times we use a row of matching bullnose if there's one available. If not you can use a Schluter profile edge. Sometimes I use a double row of bullnose, one at the corner and another extending...

Sealing the grout won't keep a shower from leaking.

It's hard to say what's going on. It's possible the hot mop is flat on the floor and not pitched toward the drain.

I've heard of some grouts being mold resistant but I've never bought into it. If you allow soap to build up and it stays wet, I think mold will grow on it. In my opinion, it helps to keep it clean...

Hi Ben. Yes, they will remove the old screws, no need to fill the holes. I would make sure there's no big splinters sticking out like is in your second picture.
They won't drill new holes, no need...

It happens all the time. The mix probably needs to be a little wetter (but not much). Plus, when you get finished screeding the mud, slick it down with a flat trowel. That will bring a little...

From left to right, it should be level. The pitch should be at least 1/8 inch, I usually shoot for 3/16. You probably have a little less than 1/8 if I had to guess.

Someone here might be able to help. Or you might try the Terry Love plumbing forum. I would probably try to contact the manufacturer and see what they have to say.
