Wedi, hot mop or membrane?
Hi all -
Due to a plumbing leak, and the need to replace the flooring in out master bath.... We seem to be embarking on an unplanned master bath remodel. Just doesn't make sense to tile the floor beautifully and leave the cultured marble shower with the nasty and corroding framed glass enclosure.
Anyway, as I'm interviewing prospective contractors, they all seem to have different preferences with respect to replacing the shower. One (who I liked a lot) sweats by Wedi products, that's all he uses. Another, (who I didn't love, because he blew off my interest in some mosiac tiling on the floor) would be using a hot mop method. The last guy, who I liked a lot would use a membrane.
It seems like there is a pretty big difference in material cost, hence a difference in the pricing to me..
Is there a substantial "best" way to do the shower floor, or is it preference?
If it's a preference thing, I'd like to save the money. If it matters for longevity, I want to make an informed decision.
The wedi guy, does tile amongst many other contracting items, the other two are tile guys who will do incidental other items, but not construction.
