No need for a moisture barrier

The next time someone tells you there's no need for a moisture barrier, that cement board is waterproof, show them this picture. Wonderboard over green board and you can imagine what the studs look like.

Well,the water got into the wall because the grout wasn't sealed. Everybody knows that! 😁

Here's a pic of the curb and studs. The seat was fine. A lot of things done wrong in this shower. No preslope, clogged weep holes, concrete instead of dry pack, No moisture barrier. I guess the green board was their moisture barrier. That didn't work very well.

At least they used greenboard. Imagine the horror had they only used regular drywall.

I love these. It seems like all I do anymore are shower replacements. I'm always told "the cleaning lady was just here and it's all black already". There's a never ending supply of starter castles around me with mediocre tile work over greenboard and mastic.

Walking out of an orange box store today, I saw two contractors loading some 12 24 porcelain into their jalopy along with a fresh bucket of Acrylipro. I asked (pointing) "are you using this with this tile?" They replied yes.
More work for me next year.
