need help with a shower tiling question


Looks like I hijacked organick's thread - sorry...

Organick,

If you have already put cement board over drywall you'd better paint it with RedGard or a similar water proofing membrane because the cement board will pass moisture through to the drywall.

need help with a shower tiling question


Ever so often a person comes along with his own ideas. Where these people get these ideas I don't know. When one of us points them to the proper way to do things they then want to argue and get defensive. It seems every post is a new mistake they are making. It amazes me sometimes. It is a waste of time to argue with these people. I have no reason to try to impress anyone. I know what I'm doing and I'm glad to help others if they will simply listen to instructions we forward that come straight from "the book". If they become childish and keep waiting for someone here to condone their mistakes then I lose patience. Sorry we don't parallel when it comes to my humor. I have been doing this on various sites for around ten years and probably have over 100 thousand posts combined by now. So if that isn't legitimate credentials I don't know what is.

Take it Jaz...there's no helping this guy. He has now singled me out and it has become a no-win situation for me. Soon he'll be gone and we can get back to regular business.

I was not arguing with your advice at all, I don't know where that came from?? I do find your replies to be a bit smarta**ed and sometimes that turns people off. I actually was about 90 percent sure the drywall needed to come out first but wanted to be sure of it because the person I am doing this for was convinced it did not.

What waterproofing membrane do you recommend and also can you tell me how to finish that seem between the drywall and the newly placed against the studs cement board so it looks finished?

While he can be a smart ass at times I looked up many of his old posts and most of the time Bud is very helpful.

organic,

I want you to know that I am resisting a temptation to tell you what I really think of you. It would likely get me banned and get this thread deleted.

After ten years on these boards, approximately 100,000 posts helping people with their tile questions and more than thirty three years in the tile installation business installing tens of thousands of square feet of tile and countless showers...why would you need confirmation of something I said. See if I answer any more of your questions. You are a Thankless Moron.
