I don't doubt what you're saying but to get the right thickness, you have to lay it on thick. Like Cx has said, it's not like painting your bedroom walls. At this point, we can hope it's enough.

I noticed the same thing as Bubba. The Redgard is supposed to be about credit card thickness. It takes a couple pretty thick coats to achieve that.

You might can beat on tiles that are on a concrete slab or walls that are on a mud bed but I would still cut the tile out the best you can. The less beating you do, the better. Cutting the tile...

Like James mentioned, I'd use a grinder with a vacuum hose next to it. You should be able to cut thru the tile without going too deep.

I would stop the preslope mud back about 6-8 inches from the drain and use thinset from that point to nothing at the drain. Avoid the little step at the drain.

If your mud at the drain wants to crumble the next day, remove it from that area where it's too thin and use straight thinset. Thinset is good from 0 to about 1/4 inch thick.

For the curb and mud walls, I like the Qwikcrete scratch and brown base coat. It might be hard to find. I’ve been told that any Home Depot can order it. Or, you can use 4 parts of all purpose sand, 1...

I'd bust the mud off he curb and call the first go around practice. You can try using a rub brick to carve it down. Really depends on how hard your mud is. If it's as hard as it should be, it won't...

A full curb is noticeable, you'll see it and know to step over it. A very small step is harder to see and unexpected.

I was thinking the same as Jim, I've seen tubs that didn't have a tile flange and if water works it's way under the caulk/grout, it will leak.

Before mixing the grout, get everything prepared. Get your bucket of water, cover up and tape off anything that needs it and make sure to use cool water for your mixing.

Jay, is this a shower stall or a tub surround that has a shower head? It's hard to tell by your pictures.

It's possible that will fix the problem but there's no way to know without more...

I think it's a Kerdi shower since Ashish said it has a Kerdi - Schluter drain. Makes me wonder if it has a foam tray under it and maybe it wasn't supported well around the drain.:scratch:

Hi Ashish, welcome. Sounds like you have a Kerdi shower. The tiles are bonded directly to the Kerdi and it can easily be damaged if you remove the tiles, so I wouldn't do that. Since it's not...

Hi Jenney, welcome. White marble turning dark is usually caused from moisture. Do you have any details on how this shower was installed? Was it tiled over a traditional pan liner and mud bed?
