Kerdiboard Shower

Not sure if anyone's seen this. Not my shower. I'm just a DIYer.

I haven't used the kerdi board or seen it in person but I've read up on it quite a bit. And I am a little intrigued by it. But I do think it is kinda gimmicky.

I don't like how he installed the "box"....I wouldn't trust that with tile on it. It scares the crap out of me. These pictures...








I would have built a small wood frame that was attached to the studs, and then kerdiboard over the frame, with the kerdiboard attached to the wooden frame with mortar and the kerdiboard washers.

Box doesn't scare me either.

Kerdi fix that high in that shower is fine.

Nicely put together and I can't wait to get my hands on some.

Flat, Level, Plumb showers. I'm getting giddy.

Yep, and there's not much waste, either. I had some scraps I thought were too small for anything, but they made this foot rest in no time. I used Kerdi-band over the joints when I Kerdied the walls.

It looks like the core is foam. Is it a closed cell or open? For strength I'd assume closed.

Hi Justin,

It's closed. Do a search on Kerdi-board. We've had quite a bit of discussion in here.
