Thinset


Does anyone have any bad experiences with Flexbond fortified thinset? I'll be using it with porcelain tiles on my shower walls. Is there a difference between the white and grey?

Flexbond does not come in white----

You will do fine with that product---that is a good quality modified---

Flexbond comes in white. It's a little more expensive.

Just the color and the price---I use white ,most times---I find it easier to clean up--and more forgiving if the clean up is not perfect---

I don't proclaim to be a tile master but from what I've read the white is used when tiling with lighter grouts and the gray with darker. And when using certain tiles such as glass, the color of the thinset can affect the finished product.
