backerboard over rubber membrane

What's the most common practice for attaching backer board over a rubber membrane on a seat top in a shower. I have heard of placing a few screws in strategic locations ( not near an edge ) or simply glueing it to the rubber. If glued to the rubber.. won't the backer board move? Would glue be enough to hold the backer board on a seat face. The rubber moves, so wouldn't the backer board also be able to move?

See, this is why I love the paint on liquid membranes. Come to the darkside, you will never regret leaving your rubber sheets behind.



Lets see your rubber sheet do that!

Glue will turn to moldy mush and screws will make it leak.

Doug,

If you want to use a framed seat/bench you will need to use a surface membrane of some sort.

If you are intent on using the rubber membrane you will have to build a block/cement seat/bench inside your pan material. You can find an article on this in the liberry.

Hey G-man,

I'm just curious why you didn't take your waterproofing up higher? I'm not "getting at anything" I'm just curious.

Because I used to be an amateur.
i have since started to go to the showerhead, like a kerdi install.

Also, didn't know better, was how I was taught, and they don't fail.......so far.

But good call, you['re not the first to question it, comes with the gueuzeman wallett garranty, but now the warranty is on Mapei and Dave Gobis-

That's cool! I was just making sure there wasn't something I'm doing wrong. LOL!

Welcome, Doug.

Perhaps you could give us a little more information about just how you constructed this shower and seat and just what the "rubber membrane" is and how it was installed.

Then maybe the folks can better answer your questions and give you some options. None of which you're likely to be thrilled with.

My opinion; worth price charged.
