Welcome to the forum, Chad.

Looks like you checked all the boxes for different waterproofing methods.

What board do you have on the walls? I see GoBoard on the bottom foot or so, is that also what's above it?

Its Diamondback drywall. All be told the shower was framed and was setup for a bladder liner 4 years ago. I am finally getting around to finishing it and after exploring the forum decided to go the Kerdi route. Was pretty straightforward and the 24 hr water test was successful. Hard to find Diamondback here now so the Goboard was cheap and easy and the Kerdi band adhered well.

Hi Chad,

I'm not up on Diamond Back, but I don't think it's waterproof.

It may not be “waterproof “ but it is a moisture barrier designed for direct tile application. I think its is a good choice for walls it holds tile very well and cuts easy like drywall

Welcome, Chad.

I can't find any technical specifications or installation instruction for that product even on the CertainTeed website. Have you?

While the face covering may well be "moisture resistant," I'd need to see how they intend for you to deal with joints and fastener penetrations if it were to be used in a wet area. I'd expect your code compliance inspector to have the same questions.

I was used for years in our area by Drywall and Tile contractors and is approved by inspectors. Seams and penetrations need to be sealed in the same manner as CBU material. I have never heard of an issue if installed correctly

How 'bout a link to that information, Chad? I can't read any of that microprint, I'm afraid.

You can attach that PDF the same as you'd attach a .jpg photo, Chad. Use the paper-clip icon above the Reply dialog box.

I tried that, it is a .pdf extension

I get this message: This AI image has the incorrect file extension.
