You shouldn't have any problem with part of that mud bed being only one inch thick in some places over that subflooring, Glenn.

I presume you've measured from you drain to the farthest corner of your shower to calculate your minimum of one quarter-inch per foot of fall to the drain?

And that you know why you have such a dramatic change in height in your subfloor and are not concerned with any structural issues, yes?

My opinion; worth price charged.

Hi folks, Got all the kerdi up water tested,passed the test no problem.The tile man started today and I was not very pleased with his work.He must be working on several jobs because he only done the ceiling and about 15 tiles on the walls.He is using spacers but some of the grout lines are double the width they are suppossed to be.On one wall I removed 6 tiles before the adhesive set up because they were cut crooked.He has done floor work for me before and did a good job but this job isnt going well.I dont want to be pickey but Im paying him good money.Should I just talk to him or fire him and get someone else?


Thanks,Glenn

Talk with him, Glenn.

You indicate that the tiller has worked with you before and has done well by you.

Why consider just releasing someone where you have that mutual background?

You already have an investment here...... a little talk may make it better.

Someone can always be fired.
