Howdy all from Colorado

Hello to the forum!

Guess I'm a 'newbie' here, although I detest the term, notwithstanding....

Decided to register so's to access forums and potentially pick some brains, if need be. We decided to retile our main bath tub surround, when the old one cracked and self-destructed. It has certainly paid for itself in its 20 plus year life.

This is my/our first tile exercise. For reference, I finished most of the house basement, wired it (no fires after 45 yrs), recently (20 yrs) built a 900 ft2 house/garage addition, moving laundry facilities upstairs and building a third bath.

In the bath, I've finished the demo'ing, installed additional nailers and grab-bar support plates, and am installing Durock cement board -(CBU-?) Still have one caulk line to clean off the tub ledge and will complete that wall. I'll do the plumbing replacement, then finish the third wall board. That'll leave waterproofing( planning RED-GARD 2x coats) after mesh taping/mortaring the seams. Currently still reading all I can online, watching videos, etc., although all that research is not without pitfalls.... One needs a large salt shaker...

Most every thing is purchased, 8 inch tile, both matte and decorative pieces. Tools, tile saw, grout powder, thin-set mortar, etc. Now we own stock in Home Depot, sigh.....

Once I review your 'Li-berry', and lots of posts, I'll likely have some Q's.
But, hello again and happy to be aboard.
