Cultured Marble Shower install ?

remodeling a old shower/bath, want to use durock, with durock tile membrane as substrate, installing 3/8" cultured marble sheet, not my choice, I would have tiled, anyhow, calls for 100% silicone? will this bond to the waterproofing membrane? will there be show through? why not liquid nails tub/surround adhesive? I know substrate sound like overkill, but my opinion is theres never enough waterproofing!

Probably will, considering the membrane was meant to stick tile to with thinset.

I agree with you. Way too much waterproofing!

All the methods mentioned should work. Durock followed by Durock tile membrane will work well and 100% silicone will bond to Durock tile membrane. Although as Bob above mentioned, you got a lot of waterproofing going on here. As much as we would for you to buy Durock tile membrane, you may not need it in this application. Smooth side our or rough side out for Durock, it doesn't matter. I would go with Fiberock above 5 feet--it's good for wet areas and can be painted like Mold Tough.

Good luck with the project. Let me know if you have questions related to our products.

Regards,
