can someone find me where it says its against code in pa? i have someone i want to show this to and i dont know where to look not hijacking


Kelly i tore out a tub surround in my old house to retile just because i want to not because of failure, it was set on drywall with mastic it didnt leak at all no wet drywall and i used it everyday and so did my sister growing up as kids, 2 years later i ripped my mothers shower stall out just because the soap dish fell off the wall in the same house, it was tile on drywall with mastic, this shower failed the drywall was black and soaked with water and studs were pretty wet so right there id say you have a 50/50 chance of failure.

Looks like hijacking to me, Rick.

We don't know if this visitor is from Pennsylvania, so let's please not continue that code discussion here.

Check with your local code compliance jurisdiction. They'll have a copy of whatever building code they're using.

Tiling directly to MR board in wet areas is not acceptable per the national code, but you never know what version or even what code your locals may have adopted.

My opinion; worth price charged.

well -its not where it dosnt say it but ----- you could start with the Tile Council of America handbook.detail B413-07 (or 08) see the NOTE: Not to be used on walls incorporating a shower head,horizontal surfaces subject intermittent water exposure,......."
"gypsum wallboard and waterresistent gypsum backing board SHALL NOT be used in critical exposure areas (see ANSI A108.01-3.5.1.1)

Info from GP's web site http://www.gp.com/build/product.aspx?pid=4684

"The 2006 IRC also states in Section R702.3.8.1 that
“Water-resistant gypsum backing board [Greenboard] shall
not be used where there will be direct exposure to water."

Building codes and state I-Code adoption information.

Couldn't it then be argued that covering the greenboard with tile would then make the exposure to water indirect?

LOL, just askin....kidding
