Try again.

Floor slopes aren't built in that manner. What exactly are you trying to accomplish here? Where are you getting your information?

how to put fall on hardi flooring


Im trying to put in a shower in
I do not want to put in a base
I have taken out the hardwood floor and put down hardiflooring
Which is like thick cement sheet
Now i would like to form like a shower base on top
Then there is vinyl you can put on top

You sound as if your mind is made up!

THAT would be a one of a kind home grown concoction that no one in the industry would condone.

Sorry, can't help you with this one.

Now if you want to get serious and build a shower that will last beyond its first use say so and we'll try to help.

Actually Hospitals do have non-slip vinyl shower floors
They weren't that good looking
But maybe somebody makes something in better colors/design

Do you have aluminum cove topping, wood chamfers, vinyl welding rod, and a vinyl welder?

Hardibacker board still isn't the way it is done.

The vinyl layers have all the equipment to do the laying
These thinks aluminum cove topping, wood chamfers, i do not have
Originly i was ging to slope to one end and put in a stainless grate at one end but the vinyl people say i need to use a gattic drain
The flooring i have used is SYCON SECURA
