A year ago we had Schluter shower pans installed in both the conservatory and master bathrooms.
Yesterday the team of 2 came back to waterproof these pans with Kerdi by Schluter.
First they put down thin set as the adhesive for the Kerdi which is flexible like paper.
It went up the wall about 10 inches.
Any difference in height between the shower and bathroom floor was leveled with extra thinset.
The waterproofing came out into the room about 2 feet since we’re not planning to have curbs on the shower.
A different kind of membrane was supposed to be used to go up and over the seat. When I got home from work the seats had not been finished. I’ll be contacting the installer because he also has our drains which are not supposed to be installed until the tiling begins.
This must set for at least 24-hours and even then we shouldn’t walk on it since any small hole could ultimately cause a leak.
I asked the installer to give us a proposal for the tiling itemized by floor and walls. (We’ve purchased the tile.)
Next step: floor tile.
Have you tiled a room? If so, what is something one should absolutely not forget?
