Tiling Shower Wall Question
Boy am I glad I am on gardenweb.
I am in the middle of my DIY bathroom remodel and am almost to the point of tiling the shower walls.
When I originally bought everything the Lowes flooring "expert" said to use mastic on the shower walls, right over the Hardieboard I already have installed.
After reading another thread here I am glad I didn't do that job yet, as the mastic will be breaking down and mold will eat it if I ever had a grout issue.
So I returned the mastic, picked up some MAPEI Aqua Defense and MAPEI Polymer Modified thin set mortar.
Just wanting to double check I do everything right, I should apply the Aqua Defense let that dry, apply the thinset, then tile?
Again Thanks Gardenweb for saving me a issue down the road!
