How many sq. ft. do you need to waterproof? You need to apply 2 coats, so figure 35 sq. ft. or so per gallon.

Redgard is the cheapest commonly available to the general public in small quantities. It's a bit more expensive in Canada then it is here though. Yikes, almost double.

(I'm just about fed up of this Canadian dollar. Everything is always double the price compared to the US.)

It's not just because of the currency value. I think yous guys add even more taxes to the cost of products so you can get some free stuff.

Just for our info, can you tell us what this product would actually cost in the end? Is the value-added tax already included in the retail price? Tell us about other taxes if you have time.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


Quebec is the only province that has a tax that is applied over another tax. If you're at Home Depot (notice the absence of the "The" due to Quebec language laws) and see a product that is listed at, say, 15.99$, that is the price before taxes.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel-imageuploadedbydiy-chat1437841649.016227.jpg

Quebec has two taxes:

1) Goods and Services Tax (GST) (currently 5%)
2) Québec Sales Tax (QST) (currently 9.975%)

When the cashier scans your 15.99$ paintbrush, she takes 5% of that 15.99$ and adds it to the total. Then, she takes 9.975% of that new total and adds that amount to the previous total to give you your new grand total. Yay!

That's what I meant when I said we're the only province to have a tax on top of another. Other states and provinces may have multiple taxes, but all of those taxes are applied to the initial list price. Not us.

Other taxes?

Those are the only I know of. Perhaps it would be easier for you to tell me what kind of taxes you have and I'll yay or nay them for over here.

That "free stuff" is our health care system, which some say is good and others say isn't very good. The good is that if you walk into a hospital with a broken leg, you don't need to drop 500$ to be tended to, because of Medicare. The bad? The standardization of Medicare slows everything down. I can talk for days about Quebec's health system. English-speaking doctors fleeing to the US because we don't pay them as well and force them to speak French. Then we wonder why there's a shortage of doctors...

I'll be more than glad to answer all your questions but doing so would take away from the focus of this thread. Feel free to make a new thread or PM me.

Yes, let's not hijack this thread in another direction. I was wondering how an item that is $45 - 50 here, ends up being $90 there. Of course it's not the same thing. Your dollar has de-valued either naturally or on purpose to make your exports cheaper which makes your economy better. Hopefully you're making more of those devalued CA dollars.

Now back to tile questions.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


I'm ready to start taping my CBU seams with the mesh tape and thinset mortar. How many bags will I need? The tub area is a standard 3 walls (60" tub)

One bag is plenty as long as you don't waste too much. I forget all the details we've talked about in this thread though.

I know we went over surface waterproofing and hope you've prep'd that window with that in mind.

Just because this is such a long thread, how about you consolidate what you're gonna do and with which products to make sure we don't miss a step.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


Ok, here's the wrap up for anyone just joining the thread:

This is where I'm at now. The boards are all on (CBU), I've scraped the old mastic off the old drywall so it's flat for tiling.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel-imageuploadedbydiy-chat1437932730.403707.jpg

The window is going to be tricky because of how far out the drywall came. I'm not exactly sure how to do the window:

Advice on Bathroom Remodel-imageuploadedbydiy-chat1437932103.815756.jpg

I bought this for the seams:

Advice on Bathroom Remodel-imageuploadedbydiy-chat1437932851.919522.jpg

The rep said it's modified and it was white so I snagged it. Bought the proper CBU seam tape also while I was at HD.

The rep also saw me pick up two 1 gallon buckets of RedGard at told me that for a bathtub the waterproofing isn't necessary and that it was overkill unless it was an actuall shower (inb4 jaz gets mad at me). I didn't buy the RedGard today and just the mortar since I didn't need it right away anyways.

Also, I don't know how to fix this corner here:

Advice on Bathroom Remodel-imageuploadedbydiy-chat1437933157.306917.jpg

Does the cement board mesh tape go on the inside and outside corners or only the flat seams? How exactly would I get that corner to be like the rest of the lower wall?

Lastly, for the ceiling, do I stuff some drywall compound in that oversized hole or do I just fill it with mortar and then put the seam tape there too?
