Waterproofing Tile shower


We are down to the studs and ready to start installing the new shower. It will be a marble/tile neo angle shower when finished.
Question: What kind of moisture barrier/waterproofing would you recommend between the studs and the cement board?

We are thinking of using the 15 lb roofing felt...is this good?

There is no water proofing required behind the cement board, build the shower wall correctly and water will not find its way to the stud wall, build a shower incorrectly and it will leak, no matter where the water proofing is.

Waterproof the face of the board using Hydroban by Lataacrete or one of the Schluter products.

Look in the blogs (above on the task bar) Bud Cline has a helpful one on building a shower wall.

What are you using for a pan?

Waterproofing Tile shower


I have a bunch of info on mortar shower pans. My wife and I did a bathroom renovation a year ago.

Lots of photos and even a free E book on bathroom renovations are at this link. When you get there, just click on the book at the bottom for a PDF download.

Hope this helps.
