I'm new to the forum, so pardon me if I'm posting in the wrong spot. I recently started remodeling my bathroom, and I'm tiling the walls with ceramic subway tiles.
I have a questions regarding thinset and tile adhesion. I used cement board and used Redguard to waterproof. I mixed the thinset as recommended, but I guess I'm just a little worried (since I don't have any experience with tiling) that a year from now the tiles will be falling off the wall because I did something wrong.
One thing I'd like to mention is that as I was working and the thinset started to get a little thicker, I would add a bit of water and remix with a margin trowel. I did this every 30 minutes to keep the thinset the proper consistency. I was constantly mixing the thinset so it would skim over in the bucket.
Anyway, I'm just a little nervous that I did something wrong. Do you all ever test the adhesion? Like try to pop a tile off or something? Probably sounds like a stupid question, but just curious. Also, probably too late to fix any issues too. I guess I'm just looking for peace of mind really
