Re: WEDI Is Awsome!


Passionate people always think they are the only passionate ones.

The history of mudbeds is interesting chit chat but the same European areas that have mudbeds are the ones that developed the newer systems. Schluter and Wedi are German inventions. Perhaps they know something California doesn't.

What is interesting to me is the claim that mudbeds are the greatest. I've replaced cracked mudbeds. Could have been age, poor framing or installer error. So what, it happens with the newer materials too.

And food for thought, It'd well known that rigid construction assemblies don't handle seismic activity well. Perhaps it the next quake in your area the Schluter or Wedi materials will survive better than the mud assemblies.

Van Arsdale... cool your jets bud... what you are missing is the average home, let alone the HO, is not going to be around 4000 years from now...

Your insisting that mud/hot mop is the ONLY way to do it, is as ignorant IMHO as a brick-layer saying that's the only way to skin a house because it lasts longer... or trying to say lathe and plaster as opposed to hanging sheetrock are the only way to do interior walls...

People die, people move, people like to change things and not live with the same look their whole life...

As to you never having seen a mud/hot mop job fail, that's quite interesting to hear...

While we all endeavor to do a quality job, we're also in business to make money... and there are different ways to accomplish both goals...

Re: WEDI Is Awsome!


While we're on topic, I actually did find a new product for waterproofing that is the best. I went to 2 training courses and must say that the cost is very reasonable and the product is impeccable. It's going to be a game changer.

More details when I can type more

You can still use premium quality mortars and whichever grout you want. It saves time on the job and a bulletproof install
