3. None that I'm aware of except the very...

If the vinyl is not cushioned, James Hardie may not care if it's under his Hardiebacker.

If by pressboard you mean particle board or MDF or similar, yes, it must come out.

Scott, I think you'll be making a mistake trying to set all that with no grout joints, but that's up to you.

I'm a bit surprised anyone recommended putting 9235 on the back of white tiles. Laticrete's 9236 is a jet black liquid-applied direct bonded waterproofing membrane.

Looks like that's a pretty low ceiling, Matt, or a high shower head location.

In any case, I wouldn't worry about it. You can cover it in some thinset mortar if you want, or just apply the...

My customary method is to shim between the top piece and the one below it on the outside of the curb.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome, Mark. :)

1. Maybe, maybe not. It certainly won't help it at all.

2. I trust you meant sealer rather than sealant and no, most of them do not.

3. I dunno.

My reasons for no using a Schluter curb is that they are very large, not as substantial as your wood curb, and not properly sloped to drain.

Can't tell if your wood curb is properly sloped, but...

Welcome, john. :)

I would opt for the Kerdi Fix in your situation and hope for the best. Certainly less than optimal, but we don't know at what stage your tile installation currently is and don't...

You should fill and tape that joint like any other drywall joint, Matt. Actually a code requirement in some jurisdictions.
