I agree with Bud Cline, I think that has been there a long time. Make sure when you go back you use a product to KILL the mold. The common myth is that you can kill mold with chlorine bleach and that is just not true. Look for a mold and mildew remover with an ingredient to kill it. I also agree with the other poster that said do not use your tile and grout to mitigate moisture, but it is a good Idea to seal it all when done as insurance. The pics look great I could not have done better myself.

Depends on the size of the KERDI Band you use. Looks like the 7" band would work. Remember, you need a minimum overlap of 2", certainly no less.

Wow, this is a great thread by you and bud. Thanks for the thorough write up and the pictures. Can't wait to see it done and I'm sure you can't wait either. Must have a really patient wife!

One thing I don't think was mentioned and from reading seems like you may not know this since you were talking about clear silicone. They make silicone caulk to match your grout, sanded or unsanded. You might have to special order it or get it from a tile store and not HD but it looks really nice and matches the grout perfect.

Why buy more, just butt what you have there up to the wall, cut off the excess and use it on the other side up to the wall overlapping two inches, then install your kerdi band.

BE CAREFUL not to build-up too many layers of the KERDI products. The KERDI Band isn't as thick as the KERDI Mat. Too much bulk with seams and corner laps will give you crooked walls and humps and bumps.

More is not better in this case.

Thanks and if it wasen't for bud I would have done a liner. (already bought but returned) I think this system will work and seems to be the best route for me, a first timer!

Would you say caulk my seat and floor seams where water will hit the most vs. grout... maybe grout the wall corners only?

Not sure if you guys have seen but I had a big post about jacking up my house as well. Cracking grout is a big possiblity in the future. It it still settling!
