I can think of ways to tile the bridge but none of them include using any cement backerboard. I would isolate any cracks with flexible water proofing and mesh reinforcement. Then mud and tile.

It helps to get a smoother ride over the tile if you lightly grease or silicone the bars on the cheaper cutters. Try to maintain the same pressure across the tile. Some porcelain has more tension...

Like Jim points out, the premixed mastic "mortar" could take quite a while to dry out and actually support the tile. I'd bet that the installer probably grouted way to soon, walking, crawling all...

Other than ebay? If you can find that tile on ebay you've struck gold. The odds of finding that specific tile is next to zero, and no, they don't make it any longer would be another safe bet.

Looking at the pictures I would bet there is no waterproofing whatsoever. There should be alkali resistant mesh tape embedded in thinset at all the seams. If there is none at the curb there's a good...

About a 1/4" to the right like Kevin says and about a 1/2" north and the drain area should look good. What does that do to the left wall? Using a grout color that blends in well with the tile will...

I would try some soft scrub with a no scratch blue scotch-brite pad on a tile or two. Hopefully the glue didn’t etch the soft marble. Fairly reputable manufacturers place a sheet of paper or plastic...

Maybe. Probably not. It looks below K-tel and Ronco. Even scam maybe. All 18 stellar reviews are 14-17 days old have similar comments. That aside, it still has cheapo city written all over it. With...
