Pro Needed in Rochester NY Area

I'm in the process of replacing a neo-angle shower in my basement and I want to use the Kerdi-method. The existing shower has a plastic base that was modified because the floor is not level. The contractor should have leveled the cement floor but decided to make the base fit the floor by removing some of the plastic using a belt sander. I believe that this caused structural damage and the base is now leaking. Since I'm starting over, I believe that the best approach is to build a mortar base, Kerdi the base and walls, then apply the tile. My biggest problem is that I don't have a clue how to build the mortar base with the Kerdi drain on a cement floor. I really prefer to have an experienced person do this part of the project. I would appreciate any contacts in the Livonia, NY (Rochester) area (14487). I can handle the rest of the bathroom remodel starting from a complete tearout.

Good Morning Jerry, Welcome to the Forum, and Yes you can do the shower!
Two links for you to look at. One is from the John Bridge Liberry. Click on it in the toolbar above. Look for the thread entitled "Shower Construction Info (a collection of posts)". The other link is for Schluter's installation video of Kerdi. Click here . As you continue to come back for questions look for this thread and post here so we can remember your specific situation.
