Does the pan have a flange around it, Dave? Got a link to it?

Can anyone tell me how to attach cement board to the back of my niche? It would be attached to drywall. The other side of drywall is an exposed wall into my living room. I had to add 1/2" furring strips to the studs so adding 1/2" to back of niche will make my tile fit perfectly. Thanks!

You'll not find an industry standard method for that, Dave, but were it mine and if I wanted to do that I'd likely just bond a piece of CBU in there with construction adhesive. See my warranty information below.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Okay thanks, that's what I figured, but I just needed reassurance that it was okay to do. Thanks again for your your knowledge.

I may have messed up. Question on the corner outside of shower area. That corner was messed up and I taped it and filled it with mortar to "fix it". Now...what do I do? Can I use drywall compound over the mortar? I need to finish that 6" of wall and paint it....or, I guess I'm going to have to tile it now? Thanks

Dave, in dry areas you can finish over the CBU or/and thinset mortar with plain ol' drywall mud just like any other area of drywall.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Glass mosaic

Good morning everyone!
Couple of questions on glass mosaic.
Can I use the product in the pics to install the glass? Do I need to use the additive since I used Mapei aquadefense waterproofing membrane? It doesn't specify "membrane". The glass will be an accent strip about 6x12 pcs. Thanks!

Hi Dave, yup - that mortar should be just fine for the glass mosaic you plan to install. It is a modified thinset mortar, no additional additive is needed.

Is the glass as thick as the field tile that borders it? If not you might want to build up the area behind the glass so that the face of the glass comes out flush with the face of the field tile.

Awesome! Thanks. Yes, I purposely bought it to match the thickness of my subway tile so they would sit flush.

Will I be able to install the glass, then continue on with the subway tile above it right away, or do I have to let the glass set overnight?

You might be able to set the glass and then continue with the subway, Dave, but it will depend on if the adding the subways ends up pushing the glass out of alignment, unless you use spacers in the mosaic. The possibility of the mosaics moving would probably move me to waiting a day.

Hi, Dave.

I’d hold up a second.

The second gray check mark on the front of the bag specifies installing over membranes requires the additive.

But looking at the directions, it shows a limitation of: “Do not use for glass tile with a decorative coating on the tile backing.” So, I’d call Mapei if I were you.

Gotta agree with Goldstein here. I can't read the bags in the photos, but downloading the TDS provides the same information he's seeing. For installation over MAPEI's A118.10 membrane (and I gotta presume any other A118.10 membrane) would require the additive.

The only positive thing I see about that mortar for a glass tile installation is the advertised very white color and you can get that in other glass tile mortars that do not require a liquid additive. Or you can just purchase MAPEI's additive to use with what you've got. If, of course, it doesn't harm that white backing I see in the photos.

My opinion; worth price charged.
