re: kerdi band/cloth

I just bought a 5" x 16.5' kerdi band from home depot.

I wanted to know the difference between the band and the cloth. Is it the same?

Home depot charged $30CAD ($25 USD), for the band. If these products are basically the same, does anyone find it is more cost effective to buy the cloth? Some how I feel like I got ripped off.

re: kerdi band/cloth

I guess it depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Kerdi is Kerdi. Schluter makes Kerdi "accessories" which are Kerdi-Band and Kerdi-Kereck. These are custom pieces of Kerdi to help with corners, seams or round openings.
I pay around $18 for the Kerdi-Band you're talking about but there would be a shipping charge on that. All in all, $25 is not outrageous.

re: kerdi band/cloth

The difference between regular Kerdi fabric and Kerdi-Band is the thickness. Kerdi band is half the thickness to minimize thickness build-up when we treat the corners. You shouldn't compare the cost of the two items, although you can cut regular Kerdi instead of buying the Band.
