A properly installed liner IS the waterproofing of a conventionally built shower...the top surface is not then later waterproofed. Tile is the decorative, wear surface, and some moisture is expected to get beneath it. In a conventional shower, that's into the setting mud bed on top of the liner. If you use a sheet membrane
Hey jadnashua, so I'm guessing you just posted without reading the previous conversations. We already went over all this.

I'm doing a pre slope and new liner over the curb etc etc.


My question is for the walls. What should I use to waterproof it?
Again I have certainteed diamondback backer board

I will have a mud pan if that helps with any info.

Tile edge not flush with drywall

My shower is now warped a bit which left my tile edge not flush with the drywall. What is a good way to fix this gap? Its half inch off at the bottom and slowly becomes flush at the top of the wall.

Hi, V.

I know it’s late to ask why you didn’t install the profile flush with the wall and simply cut the tile to fit, but knowing why will help us understand options.

And another question: has the tile on the pan or the bottom course of tile been set with mastic?

It's not flush with the wall because the wall is so off that the cuts in the shower would look so bad and off.
I'm not sure about the tile on the pan if he did it with mastic or not.

Now does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Can I just fill with mud??

I suspect all the pros here would advise that this should have been addressed at the framing and drywall stage...long before any tile was set.

I imagine one could patch in varying thicknesses of drywall and float with setting drywall compound and mesh tape in several lifts. This would require installing a new corner bead on that corner opposite the metal. I can almost guarantee it will look less than great. Ugggh.

Not something I could offer a client in good conscience, but stranger things have been done.

So basically take off corner bead. Put half in drywall strip up the wall till it looks close to flush, install new corner bead , then mud and tape everything.

waterproofing new shower window

How do i go about waterproofing a new vinyl window in a shower?
The casing and sill are all vinyl, also the window is fixed so it does not open or close.

Appears you've already finished tiling the wall around the window, V. Too late to do any waterproofing. You can use a flexible sealant in the gap between window and tile and stop some direct water entry for a time, but it won't be waterproof.

My opinion; worth price charged.

At this stage, you can do some topical sealant like CX mentioned. But if you wanted to do some waterproofing, you would have tied the window into the shower wall’s waterproofing before any tile was set. You see, it’s common for moisture from your shower to penetrate into the wall and into the tile assembly...so your bead of caulk can’t help. That’s why waterproofing needs to be done earlier.

That means that your other methods of using more tile or special casing doesn’t really afford additional protection over the caulk bead.
