I use 2 inch foam for curbs all of the time. I've switched to the new Wedi curbs (https://www.masterwholesale.com/wedi-full-foam-curbs-5-full-foam-curb-at-us3000048.html) because they have a...

I would definitely band that pan/wall joint. It's too critical to rely on a liquid waterproofer alone

I know that you have decided on Flexcolor but I want to emphasize, for anyone seeing this later, that Spectralock and Spectralock1 are not the same product.

Spectralock1 is in the same category as...

Lay it down on a piece of plywood and screw in a couple chunks of 4x4's on each side of it. That'll clamp it into place.

This is the main area where I stray from the industry guidelines with epoxy grout.

I would epoxy the shower floor, the perimeter joint, the outside corner on the bench joint if it's mitered, and...

Flexcolor CQ is a nice product as long as you follow the installation instructions. If it were me, I'd return it and pick up Laticrete's Spectralock1 at the same store. SL1 is the best of single...

Yes, the full amount of Part C is added to the full A+B units. However, if you're doing wall work with tight grout joints (1/16th) they say you can withhold up to 10% of Part C. So I guess that would...

Epoxy can help with keeping grout from cracking in change-of-planes. There are a few instances that I use epoxy instead of silicone. But I know that it's in conflict with industry standards and, as...

Oh. I see. Still, heating systems don't just stop working for no reason. Or they shouldn't, at least. Seems like a warranty issue to me.

I can't remember hearing one instance of Ditra Heat failing in the way that you are describing. Why not submit a warranty claim?

I don't think this is fair. Both the spinner and the wedge systems were removable during installation whereas with TLS you had to break them to remove them and lift up a tile.

So I feel the better...

I agree with what Christopher said. The turbo mesh blades work great and cut smoothly until they bind and chip, which they are prone to do. So I don't think they are the best blades to cut at an...

This is the one that you want but the thinset won't be 3/16. More like 1/8th with a 1/2 x 1/2 inch square notch trowel.

However, it may still feel a bit low if your tile has a factory bevel or...

Self-leveling is misnamed. It's not magic but it flows pretty well. If you don't do everything perfectly you can still pour it and get ridges, high spots, and low spots throughout.

It's from Randall Carlson and Graham Hancock and it goes into human prehistory.

Ditra XL or 1/4 inch cement board. I've used 1/2 inch cement board for really thin tiles like penny rounds.

Sometimes I've even used 1/4 inch cement board with 1/8 inch Ditra over it. But that can...

I don't think the turbo mesh blades are the same as the old porcelain turbo blades of old. The Pearl p4 turbo mesh is one of the better blades out there.

For the flooring, I think probably #1 is the way to go. Ideally, you would want about a 3/8 inch cement board, which they don't make. So you may have to add a little mortar to build up the tiles at...
