Kerdi corners


Hi everyone I am using kerdi on my bathroom shower and also happen to have a bucket of redgard laying around .. Can I use redgard on the inside and outside corners of the kerdi? Anyone se a problem with that? I would like to do that as
I already have redgard and it seems like a good use for it.

Would you put Chevy parts on your Ford because
you have them laying around?

Using the Kerdi corners is the right thing to do and
will preserve your Kerdi warranty.

Thats not really a relevant answer... I appreciate what you are saying but I would like to know if anyone has experience with using both..

I believe John Bridge(If your doing Kerdi you should know who he is) used Red Guard on his shower. I wasn't in the corners. I would stick to the Kerdi Band and feel confident my show was not going to leak. Why take a chance behind your tile?

Do you have a reference of this or a link? That would be great news.

I'm not sure I can post a link and not ruffle any feathers. Just Google search 'John Bridge' and his web site will be on of the first links. Good luck.

There's no need to go to another forum. Here is your answer. Use one or the other, they both do the same thing... To prevent water from that point if it gets behind your tile. So if you have both its two barriers that are to close and will trap moisture and mold. Same applies to a vapor barrier behind cement board.
