Tina, how are you building the shower walls and floor? What method?
thanks for the info Jaz. Great tip, however it might be hard as I am using a 10 x15 tile staggered vertically.
I am building the shower old school I guess. Pan liner sloped dry pack. Hardieboard on walls thinset over mesh tape for the joints.
Just finished the walls yesterday.
The tile store gave me a mastic/ glue for the wall tile. Would thinset not be better for mold issues? She said it would be easier than thinset because I am not a professional.
Should I use a white thinset for a light colored tile? I realize it won't show through but might come up through the joints.
Grout ?what kind? I understand there is an antibacterial type grout that does not need to be sealed. Worth the extra dollars?
