It's really not that difficult of a concept. It doesn't take much more time or material. And you only need one coat to do the trick.
"

...

"but since DS is already waterproofed it is not needed, IMO."




...so which is it?
Taken out of context, sure it looks inconsistent, however the last statement is in reference to multiple coats of AD over DS. The former statements were in regards to ensuring at least one solid coat of waterproofing.

I'll explain again. Dabbing over screws and cover the corners leaves edges that are all areas of weakness, giving at least one solid coat ensures that you have a solid sheet of waterproofing.

Since the majority of the sheet of DS already has multiple layers of waterproofing, additional coats of AD are nice but IMO not needed to ensure one solid coat of coverage.

I didn't say that Matt was wrong, just called it how I saw it, as over kill at that point.

So I choose, both ways under my intended context.

Re: First Time With Denshield.


When you guys have some time you should go to the GP site and read the installation manual. Read the whole thing but pay special attention to page 7 DS002. Continue to page 8 DS004 and study how they want you to do a shower seat. Notice you have to apply a waterproofing system over Dens for the seat. Item "F". Then what? Where does F stop? Ridiculous I think.

While you're scrolling down to page 13 to find the approved waterproofing systems, take a look at the other shower sketches, DS007 Makes my head spin and makes no sense to me.

Re: First Time With Denshield.


Jaz,

I've fixed curbs that had denshield buried into the mudbed. Sucks up the water like.....drywall. Shocking, I know.

I use cbd + membrane(liquid or sheet) or wedi for curbs. I haven't used a wrapped curb product like wedi curb,yet.

AquaD wants two coats min. for corners then seal main area. That's 3 coats. The first coat dries fast because it soaks in. The next coat(s) take longer. Not too bad if you have other stuff to do there.

If that's what you feel is solid, sure. But just covering the holes and corners is not solid.

Unless I missed something in the 1st grade, beginning a sentence with "why" and ending it with a question mark constitutes a question. You asked the question after the answer to it.


Sorry ...

I assumed you knew what a rhetorical question was, in the future I will keep that in mind ...

It did not qualify as rhetorical. Apparently I am not the one who needs to learn. The question was in opposition to my point. How could that be considered RHETORICAL?

Re: First Time With Denshield.


Olzo,

As we all know the curb is usually the first sight of failure. Even old fashioned mud jobs are often not done right and that's the 1st to fail. I'm semi-retired and so I choose the jobs I wanna do. I could care less for people who's only desire is to get it done cheap. I have only done Kerdi showers since '05. There's no better method. Cheaper, faster, yes, but not better. IMO.

And I don't have an issue with any of it, just stating my opinion on the subject. If you have a problem with that, start your own private forum and don't invite any one with a different opinion.
Opinion,huh???
How can you expect anyone to consider your opinion without facts?
After all Rob,aren't you all about the facts.......... and proof?

Show us the facts and proof and maybe we'll consider your opinion, or
anything you say,to be worthy of any consideration.

Just saying....................

Can we say bitter? You'll get over it someday.

But here's the difference, I called it my opinion, you my friend call your opinions facts, and continue to repeat it even though it has been proven to not be true. I never claimed the manufacture said to do it this way, nor claimed that it was the best way. Just my way to ensure it is a solid coat. Oh, and others agreed. So by your standard, since others agreed or had similar stories it must be true. So I guess theirs the proof that you demand.

And what's better proof than a guy who I have been butting heads with lately. That's gotta count for something.

Nice way to try and hijack a thread. Maybe now that you got that off your chest you can contribute to the topic.

I respectfully disagree....Noble TS is not cheaper, not faster but better because the thicker is better..(no pun intended)

My curbs are concrete, I wouldn't trust anything but masonry of some sort, like you said, more work but then they never fail either .....
