AGAIN KAP.
Labor savings ? You I'm assuming are not a Tile and Stone installer or at least an experienced one and if that's the case, not a problem actually good and explains your comments. . 1/8 the material costs and 1/3 the time in labor and the end result is perfect. Yours will be as out of everything as it was before you started. Unreal

It is a lot like a plumber saying you the only good plumbers are those who will only use copper and cast iron.
It's the Chicago of showers.

You're in here guns blazing, misspelling names for added insult, and to folks with established credentials who could probably kick your butt 100x over in workmanship and production, I'll bet. Learn some manners or get lost.

I'm sorry that everyone isn't as correctly informed on the east coast. I'll school those of you that might be serious about learning another way of doing something that is actually the intended methods. I'll be happy to help.

I have never seen a hot mopped shower, never heard of anyone doing it and do not know anyone that has ever done one. I know one town requires fiberglass or a liner. I have ripped out plenty of pvc liners and lead pans though.

Not saying mud is bad ,I happen to love a good mud job but it's not the only way to do a good tile job. Who needs a tile substrate to last for 4000 years or even 100 years. You've missed my point . A very good friend of mine just moved back to Italy last month because he honestly couldn't understand why we do things the way we do over here. He didn't want to hear it. The better way isn't always the only way . I learned how to do mud jobs from some of the most skilled men but I only do mud on floors. There's just no reason to do it on the walls with all that is available today. You should just calm down and listen, you just might learn something here .......or maybe you can just tell us how it's all done.

Re: WEDI Is Awsome!


Well I havent seen any of your work. Why don't you post a Video of you floating some walls. I am guessing that you have a ways to go in the skill set based on the fact that the guys who have mastered this skill set usually have a wider circle of competence and experience. So are you a member of NTCA? Have you passed your CTI or ACT in Mud in either Flat or walls?
Do you even know what these letters stand for? show us picts (with camera details of time and place So I know they are yours) of the work you have done in the last 5 weeks. Here is a few to get things started.
this was my last three weeks jobs.

No one claimed that mud doesn't hold up. You made claims against Schluter and other systems. Please provide us with your proof. Not your opinion. Proof.

What's funny is this joker gave himself a 5 Star review on his own FB business page.
