Kerdi Shower base

I am thinking of trying the Kerdi shower in my own house. What is the best base? I have to tear out a plastic shower liner and I am pretty sure that there is particle board everywhere. What would you do?

Hi Mel,

Take a look around in the Liberry for some great information on shower construction. Kerdi is a great product which I found to be easy to work with and a great way to get a waterproof shower.

If you've got particle board as your subfloor, it'll have to be removed. To get more specific about what you need to do is difficult without more information from you. What size is your shower?

Hi Mel,

If you're taking out a plastic base, it's probably square, and the drain is probably centered. You could use the Schluter tray by cutting it down on all sides and centering it over your drain pipe.

On the other hand, you could do a mud floor.
