    Tiling a Bathtub/Shower Surround

    One time I had a tile fall down. I thought, "hmm strange, it has plenty of coverage" then I put it back. It fell yet again and I put it back again. Finally it falls and nearly hits me and when I look up to the empty spot I notice a small ray of light shining through the thinset lines. It was...

    grout lines in shower

    Sanded is perfectly fine on walls. What this person told you holds true only if the grout likes are tiny ( smaller than an 1/8 ).

    Sealing shower walls

    Enhancer is just that unless it specifies its a sealer also. Bring that back and get a stone enhancer / sealer and make sure it says "matt Finish" to avoid the shine, also make sure it will last more then a year so you done have to do it annualy. These questions would probably be answered...

    Tiling a Shower Shelf/Cubby

    I try to keep the tile over lapped so water always runs over the edge, grout lines in a box scare me a bit so the less the better (btw...thats a bullnose, its finished). I found a nice blade for the wet saw that finishes the edges the same as a bullnose for only $140 ! Thats a nice look also...

    grout lines in shower

    Its all a matter of what you want really. I use 1/8 inch lines on everything I do and yes sanded is fine for 1/8 and larger :)

    cork or bamboo in basement?

    I worked with a company that installed cork flooring. They glued down luan then corked over it, the application I watched was cork tile. Nice looking stuff and doesnt get cold! It always stays room temp :)

    Tile over brick?

    You can tile on brick but you need to skim coat it with thinset first ( like you would drywall ) then key it in with at least a 1/4 x 1/4 trowel. Use VersaBond Flex thinset, you can get it at Home Depot :)

    Thinset for Backsplash

    Either or is fine when it comes to a backsplash. I like to use a high grade mastic so I dont have to worry about spacers or it drying to fast. Have fun with it ! Backsplashes are IMO fun to do.

    shower seat

    Normally the seat is made first and wrapped with the same liner as the pan itself. Take a look around the web ( maybe the John Bridge site ) and take a look at how a cement seat is made. Its fairly simple and only requires a few cinderblocks , mortar, and waterproofing :)

    shower cady

    Its as easy as putting two pcs. of 2x4 across from stud to stud for the top and bottom of the box. Durock it tight and make sure the bottom shelf is pitched towards the shower. Tape and thinset ALL of the corners and seams and then RedGuard it. Dont be stingy with the RedGuard, use a paint...

    Mortar for Porcelain tile on hardi backerboard

    Versa Bond products sold at Home Depot are in my opinion the best quality. Spend the extra $2 and get the white thinset, its not as "dirty" as the grey. :) Good luck
