Where does the redguard go ?
having someone remodel the bathroom incl new tiled shower,,, tub's out & we're down to exterior studs & plywood flooring.
thinking redguard's the 1st thing BEFORE building the shower pan ?,,, put up m r board, build ply floor, then seal all w/redguard INCLUDING mesh tape/redguard corners ? ? ?
how high ? high enough so wtr bouncing off a 6' tall guy's safe ?
tnx in advance !
Red Guard is usually the final item ---there are many ways to build a pan---
How to build a shower - Building a shower pan with pre-sloped mortar bed, liner and curb.
This link shows the traditional pan with liner---this type of pan is not coated with Redguard----with this one only the walls are coated--usually red guard up to 6 foot minimum------tape all seams with tile mesh---then coat with a very thin layer of thinset---after that, the Red Guard is applied to the walls----two or three coats.
If you are going to build a pan without a liner----a special drain set will be needed--Schluter and Latacrete make them----those drains have a waterproof membrane attached---then the pan is painted with the surface membrane---
For that type of pan I use Hydroban (by Latacrete)--that is a heavy membrane--I do not know if Red guard is approved for waterproofing a pan----
