tile HELP


Call Schluter and ask----I believe it's O.K. with them.

Next call your building department---In the U.S. ,most jurisdictions do not allow any drywall in a shower

The codes were written before the new waterproof membranes were popular,I'm sure.--Mike---

I hope Jazz or Bud are watching----I am not a Schluter user---they are experts on that product---

It's the busy season (Thank goodness) so be patient----Mike----


P.S.----Bud Cline has a good post in the 'how to' section--Preparing a wall for tile----good read.--M---
