Not sure how you can be sure of that, Wolfgang. If the tile were installed over mud or CBU walls and floor, there would be more allowance for wicking and evaporation on the back side of the tile...

Joe, I've used a number of different trowels for installing those sheet-type membranes and I found that the 1/8x1/8x1/8 inch Schluter trowel definitely made a difference in how well the installation...

Jeff, I think if you're looking for a standard approach here you should be mixing your mud from Portland cement and sand. While we think the Quikrete Sand Topping mix is about a 3:1 sand to cement...

Bob, I've tried lots of different ways to support a ledger board for skipping a row of tiles and find it easiest to simply screw it to the wall. I favor using 5" rips of plywood where feasible so I...

Welcome back, Dan. :)

I see no questions for us, so the best recommendation I can give you is to read and follow the product manufacturers' instructions.

Up to you, Ken. My advice is to make your subfloor suitable for your tile installation, then make any necessary transitions to adjacent flooring.

I would use nothing less than nominal 1/2"...

1. MAPEI's Kerabond is a very good un-modified thinset mortar. If the shower tray manufacturer recommends it for installing his product over SLC, that's fine with me.

2. You do not use any...

Welcome back, Eddy. :)

I recommend you use a modified thinset mortar meeting ANSI A118.4 (C2 in your ISO 13007 standards I think) to bond both your foam tray and your additional deck mud to the...

While I can't recommend marble in a shower, the white Versabond would be fine for bonding same.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Jonathan, I don't think Jeff wanted to know how recently you bought the silicone, I think he wants to know the manufacture date on the tube.

Might tell us the brand name and such, too. We've...

Parke, you'll note in that thread you linked that the OP had a sawn board subfloor of nominal 1" boards, not a 1/2" first layer. And you've still not mentioned what your first layer consists of.

Welcome back, Gene. :)

I think you'll generally find that the price increase for 1/2" glass over 3/8th" glass is, how you say, noteworthy? And seldom worth the cost.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome back, Parke. :)

You don't indicate your joist spacing.

Any subfloor starting with a nominal 1/2" material (you don't specify what it might be) is a non-starter as far as I'm concerned. ...
