Best products for regular shower and steam shower
Tile guy is willing to use what we feel is the best product. Doing 2 showers: standard stand up shower and the other is a steam shower, both custom.
For the standard shower, he'll probably use hardiboard or durock with 2 coats hydroban over it, with hydronic cement poured in the copper pan (existing by GC). Not sure if I've listed the order correctly but he knows the proper technique.
For the steam shower - we need both to water proof and vapor proof. We've heard about the kerdi board and the wedi board. Which set of products are recommended for a) waterproofing and b) vapor proofing? He's aware of the Schluter/kerdi flooring system and is considering. But for the walls, the locak Kerdi supplier is recommending wedi over kerdi for the steam shower.
Thoughts much appreciated.
