Heidi, if you didn't do this on the first try, do it on the second time around. Besides combing mortar on the floor, skim the back of the tile with mortar so that you get a mortar-to-mortar bond. ...

That may be okay if he coated both sides and both edges properly so that water couldn't infiltrate the board.

But considering the Hardi recommendation to not bury it, it's just easier to buy a...

You could do any number of waterproofing hacks to try to keep water out. Some may last a while, some won't. Eventually water will get into the wall.

I might agree with that if it was called a "self-driving screwdriver".

I understand your line of thinking, but I don't think I'd make plans based on the future tear-out of the floor. The 3/4" ply is sufficient for your joist spacing. You can choose to go with that, or...

I don't know that I'd use that profile at all. With those mosaic tiles there's usually not a thick setting bed, so the profile would have to be recessed into the sheetrock to avoid a bump in the...

It's possible that he combed mortar on one surface and just skimmed it on the other. It's a good way to get the proper bond.

But 80 square feet out of 3/4 of a bag would be more than a stretch.

If you have Kerdi on the floor, you'll want to cover it until you're ready tile over it. And once tiled, you'll want to cover it until it's ready for grout.

Justin, it would probably still work. You'd just have to lift up one side of the tile enough to clear the wall, slide it into place, then set it.

I would have done the same as Justin with a snap cutter. And I would have put it inside the toilet room so it was less likely to be noticed.

I wouldn't like it either, unless it was a shelf for some really tiny shampoo bottles.

There's more than one way to build up that area to the thickness of three quarters and make it all even.

Is your shower floor covered with tile, or is it a pre-formed receptor of some sort?

We'd need to know what the backsplash tiles are before recommending a mortar.

What about the tiles outside of what you already pulled off? Are they solid or more loose ones?

What kind of cleaners did you use?
