Curb Slope

Is it ok to use thinset to add a 1/8" slope on a flat shower curb? (I don't have any mortor mix handy.)

Thanks,
Glenn

Hi Glenn, you can use thinset but it's kinda hard to work with. You might find it easier to butter up the tiles as you go, especially if you are using large tiles.

Thanks Davy... I was concerned with the suitability of the thinset to make up the thickness - I take it that's not a problem as long as I can get the goo to behave.

Yep. I like that, getting the goo to behave.
