Hey guys quick question , what is the best way to. Even out the top of a cement shower curb ? Would patching cement be used for this?

You can grind it down flat instead of building it up unless you have too.

A cordless or corded grider with a sanding wheel or a sheet sander would also work.. You can use sandpaper and some elbow grease but it will be much quicker with a power tool.. Glad i can help..

Its ok.. When i do pans i always use a fortified high strength mortar.. You are going to wrap it with a liner or are you prepping for tile? That will work..

No i would sand it down to get it how you need it thats the best way, or when you tile it you can just build up a little with your thinset on the curb to get the proper pitch and height you are looking for so you dont have to sand or remud anything..
