I believe that most all the big boys will stand behind there products.
I have personally had custom reps come to my job over grout.
Was not the grouts fault, it was the well water we have around here.
Custom sent out more then enough stain to fix the job for Free! Next day, not bad service for a little guy

Bill, you're up in Yankee Land. Custom is a West Coast company. Figure it out.

Naw. Kidding. Hi, Beaux.

Sometimes in our business we dont get to choose which product we use. We have sprayed applied Redguard on a 180 room shower project with good success.

We start another 170 room project next month and we will be using Merkrete.

I guess we are truly an EOE company!!

I prefer Hydroban but have used Redgaurd on tub surrounds and for crack suppression. Used Mapei HPG quite a bit also, and even some purple Bonsal stuff doing a custom beach home in NC years ago. And before and during using those went through plenty of Laticrete 9235 on gang showers and commercial kitchens. I have a pair of waterproofing jeans. They all stay stuck pretty good after repeated washing. Now I wear shorts and work clean

I'm sure Redgaurd can waterproof a shower just fine when properly applied. The problem is that around here the guys that use that for their showers don't usually install it properly and have never heard of the TCNA. So deserved or not Redguard is the preferred waterproofing membrane for hacks on Maui. Nothing wrong with the product (other than the color), but when the only place you can buy it around here is HD that is what you get. Obviously John Cox is not a hack and if he is I want to be one too.

But if Hydroban did not work I would have been out of business already. Lots of my showers are in multistory condos. If a shower leaked I not only get sued by the owner but the 8 people living below them.

Cigars

E 3,
Are you going to bring the right kind this time or you going to stiff me again?

I used the "New and improved" Redgard today, and I was not at all impressed. It is way thinner than Aqua D and hydroban. It has to go on way thicker, it didn't dry nearly as fast as Aqua D does, and the smell was horrible, I actually had to wear a respirator, and even had the painter come in and ask what that smell was.

I am not saying I don't think it will work (otherwise I wouldn't have even tried it) but I will stick to Aqua D. And it was only $4 cheaper than Aqua D (for 5 gallons) With the required thickness vs. Aqua d that makes it much more expensive.
