mudded shower floor


That Green Drywall will rot out in no time! There is no reason to have drywall in a shower under 6'. Ever.

Did the shower pass a flood test? 24-72 hours?

Did all the water drain after the test was finished?

The silicone in the picture is blocking your weep holes on the lower level!

There also appears to be no room for the tile to line up even with the other tile.

This project is looking like a do-over.

My thoughts - Sorry.

See how the cement board kicks out at the bottom. If you are doing a Do-Over you should use a 'Tucked Corner' technique when re-installing....

Jaz, pics sent are not in exact order but hopefully you can see the process.
on top of subfloor I laid tar/felt paper, lath, mudded, put down liner and mudded again.also curb is lined after first mudded bed and nailed on outside only. I did not put plastic or tar paper on entire shower just the floor. Ok? Ok I just hope you can help me make it work somehow.Let me know and thanks again Jaz ...you're so patient.Thanks

Are you planning on tiling over the exsisting tile?

I hear ya but I'm not trying to hear. No to the 1st two questions. I checked the website you sent. I'll keep this in mind. Just in case all else fails how would I tear out cement?? Wow when this is over I'm gonna have some muscles -maybe even a deep voice. Ok the no curb drains look great but this is an old house. The bathroom is really small so I just want to do what it requires nothing fancy. I'm trying salvage the top of shower tile even though some grout lines have cracked but certainly the floor has to be done correct. So thanks for your expertise.

Chritine if you have not checked that the shower passes a flood test you need to do this before you proceed any further. Currently the shower looks like that last picture?

I'm concerned about the gypsum board in the pan area---that will rot very quickly.

What about the fact that the backer board is near level with the wall tile!

Yep--lots of wrong things---The liner looks like it has no pre slope to drain the water from the deck --Jazz has been working with this member and I didn't wish to confuse her--Jazz has a good way with words---

Me.........a way with words? Is this Mike or Michelle?

Don't worry about confusing Christine, cuz now I'm confused.

Looks to me as the pics are the current project, but I don't know why it's done in those steps which I think is out of order. The greenboard is bad, real bad, unless the concrete backer had been covered with a waterproofing of some type. How you gonna tape that seam on the back wall? Are any of the other seams taped? Why is the wall tile up already?

Christine, can you sum up the entire thread so we don't have to read it all again.

Jaz
