My first Kerdi shower...question on product

Just did my first Kerdi job after exploring and installing so many other systems for so long. Was very easy after all the reading here I must say. I noticed when I unrolled the roll I had a strip of kerdi about 1" wide wound up with the roll which started a third through the roll until the end. Almost like someone unloaded some scrap in there, lol. Only problem is it wrinkeld the roll a bit from there on out and was my only problem with bubbles as they had been set that way for so long it formed them and it was rough getting them out. Ever see anything like this? Other than that it was easy and Im sold for good. Pan was easy to cut but also easy to dent with my knees so ill take care in the future. The bubbles I was worried about for so long where not an issue with the right trowel. I like the fact I can be ready in one day with a helper to sheetrock/pan and Kerdi. Thanks for the push folks in the right direction.

I have never seen that but had a dented corner and it was a PITA!
I try to make sure the rolls I get arent creased or bent.

Glad to hear of your success Ron.

Take the next step and make your own ceeement pans then cover with Kerdi. Aside from the dollar savings, you can kneel all over that base, drop a few things, and walk all over it without worry.

For when DIY isn't such a good idea...

i have done the pans many times and would not hesitate to do again but the idea of getting it all done in a day is nice sometimes due to timing.
