Will Kerri membrane hold if some spots don't seem to be adhered underneath?


I am remodeling my shower with the Schluter Shower Kit. I put up the Kerdi membrane on the walls last night using unmodified thinset over concrete backer board. My mix was probably a little thicker than it should have been. And the first two sections I put up we're large, covering a lot of wall. My concern is that there are spots, where the thinset wasn't thick enough. I know I do have plenty of adherence, but I still am worried that once I tile, after weeks or months, the Kerdi will come loose and everything will come down. Is this a concern?

Should be fine.

If it has good grab, you are golden.

I hope so. There are a few spots, where the grab is not solid. But I would say that overall it is holding pretty well. I just hope those spots where the Kerdi and thinset aren't really sticking isn't going to affect the rest if the Kerdi to eventually come lose.
