Did this video help you?

oscar garcia: I wonder about the process of removing the tile from the mortar base when just replacing the tiles.

ll c: first video i seen with wire mesh in the shower pan. Other don't use wire mesh, is it necessary?

Lesley Mason Dupre: This was by far one of the most helpful, straight forward videos I've ever watched. Keep up the great work!

Ro'ber Harpane': Very nice concise video.

It can't be stressed enough to stabilize your floor base area where live movement occurs with heavy bodies moving around showering. If you take your floor out all the way to the joist system, bridging between your joists ties them together in a way to eliminate sideways shifting of your floor system & stabilizes this area into a "single block" per se'.

Doubling your subflooring with construction adhesive between layers adds even more stability eliminating the dreaded shifting/bounce which creates eventual cracking of surface tiles.

This video, although brief shows the importance of small detail (such as the base blocking inside your walls & vertical outside runs for nailers) which results in extending the lifetime of the finished project.

You don't have to be a pro & have yrs. of experience to do a project with worthwhile results. You just need to spend a few extra hours, stand back from your project at intervals & ask yourself,, "what one more step can I do to do this better & add that extra touch. Try to actually understand the concept of what you're doing with importance to added detail.

It's like insurance..

Joe Heyming: Great video, thanks for sharing.  When installing the 2x6 blocking, what do you do if there is a vent pipe in the way or supply lines?

Hooter Bear: Why do this instead of hot mopping.....seen both ways and wondering the pros and cons of each....thank you.

miked1120: Can I used pressure treated wood in my bathroom?  For the curb, 2x6 blocking?  Just asking because after some demo, there is dry rot near the toilet and a few other spots.

Kane Campos: What I dont have any joist directly under my curb...just 3/4 inch sheathing. Can I still screw and liquid nail into that?

George Dobbs: This is an incredibly good video.  Lets get this guy to do all the DIY videos on youtube.

snowbird29803: Guys like this are worth their weight in gold. This is the kind of job where you don't want a hack; too much as stake in getting it right the first time. I'm getting this done soon and I took notes so I know what to look for when I'm watching over the work. I don't like to hover over craftsmen, but in this case I might have to. I guess discussing the procedure in advance might limit misunderstandings. If you can't D-I-Y, next best is to know HOW it's supposed to be done. Thanks for an excellent video.

Donny Hunt: Loved the video, thank you for your hard work. You are making the world a better place my friend!

Jermaine Coney: How do I secure the metal lathe to a concrete subfloor?

Uzztoob: very helpful on the kirb. most videos leave that part out or are using the plastic kind. thanks

nazilaba: extremely helpful thank you.  i will be ripping my old plastic one out and following your video.

vqphan: Hi great video. I was wondering though, did use the same type of mortar mix for the second application as the first application.

Виталий Русь: Klass!

moises: do you the same mortar mix for both times? (before the plastic n after)

MAD King: Mark, does the 1/4" plywood for the second layer have to be in one piece? And what exactly type or mortar do you use? There are several with the yellow package available. Thank you

HomeAdditionPlus: If I remember right I used 2x4s on that project, at least for the walls. In regards to the curb, I stacked 3 2x4s on their flat sides, screwing the lowest level one into the floor joists and then the upper ones into the lower level pieces. I also used 2x6's for blocking around the base of the pan to have a solid flat surface to nail/staple the membrane to.

MAD King: Mark, why do you use a 2x3 lumber and where for the curb?
