The secret in cases like this is to preassemble and solder the bends and elbows, and then slide them in place and then sweat the rest of connections and risers in while they’re away from the meltable...

Nope. Modified mortars stick well on drywall. Unless you’re using smallish tiles, you would have saved time, money, and potential headaches by skipping the drywall mud step. The compound resoftens...

Was getting some stuff for a visit and stopped by a chain shopping plaza wine and liquor store. Not a big scotch fan, but it’d hard to pass some of this up if I was offered a sip. A tad too “rich”...

Like taking pictures of anything, it’s all in the lighting. A more diffuse light source (vs. say a bare bulb) is going to be more flattering, as in minor defects don’t show as much. Lighting from...

That’s impressive either way. Either insanely great tile cutting skills, or great PhotoShop skills. Kudos for either.

This story made it to my local news as one of those interesting tidbits for filler. Usually reserved for a cute puppy or such. I almost choked on my dinner while watching saying, “hey, I saw that...

I know how this stuff can gnaw at you (been there, done that - lots of times). Found a picture of the drain divot filled and leveled. It works, so I figure it can’t be all that bad, right?

Welcome to the forum. Long first post.
Q1 - walls are very rarely perfect. Do you have the Kerdi board up already? Is it banded yet? Mortar really isn’t made to fill wide areas like that. It’ll...

How about a thick epoxy, like Latapoxy or PC-6? You could sand it flat with the tiles and spray over the patch to match. Not ideal, but show by sometime until you get the urge to tear the whole...

You’ll want to remove the grout. My main concern wouldn’t be so much the cracking, but the insects. Bugs don’t just randomly settle into cracks like that. They’re looking for places to nest in,...

What an unusual break pattern. I would expect just a straight triangle pop off the corner. You CAN remove the tile over the heating wires, but not likely by just prying it up. That will probably...

The doorway looks like a standard size, meaning it’s 36” or less. Since you’re using a 36” wide tile; consider ripping a piece down to 2 or 3 inches and using it as a threshold. It would have a bit...

Ugh. That’s always one of those things where you say to yourself “I should have…”. Anyway, tearing it all off (which is going to mess up the Kerdi) is the “ideal” option, if we lived in an ideal...

You don’t mention what the floor under the tile is made of. Moisture retention in a slab is different than a wood floor. Depending on how long the leak was going on; the subfloor, even the joists,...

Yes, I only used the epoxy for the mounting brackets. The screws were used only as studs, the holes were made a bit wider than the threads so there’d be no “bite”. The epoxy filled the holes and...
