Did this video help you?

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

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.

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

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.

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?

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

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

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.

mavgolf4life: Used this pan liner method for years and worked great when we used to float walls back in the pre cement board days. I started using a paitable membrane with fiberglass over the pre float after cement wall board install. Eliminates water wiking up board and keeps corners from kicking due to liner folds. Also makes curb install much easier. But theres definatly 100 different ways to do a shower pan, and this is definitly a tired method for a d.i.y.'er Thanks for the video!

HomeAdditionPlus: Unfortunately I am not familiar with that drain.Maybe another visitor to the channel can answer your question.

thegunth63: thanks for the video, i'm in the process of doing my 1st poured pan, though i've done many preformed pans. Wish me luck!

Garett Murphy: forgive me for being dense in the world of carpentry but is the subfloor just your regular flooring? or is your 3/4 inch subloor another piece of plywood along with another 1/2 inch piece of plywood on top of your regular flooring?

HomeAdditionPlus: I made cuts in the PVC liner to push the bolts through.

All Tile: Great Video. I was just wondering, do you ever have an issue with curb swelling or shrinking and cracking the tile or grout just from temperature variation? I stopped building wood curbs 8 years ago just for that reason.

cojimero59 .: Excelent video! Very well explained and methodically presented. One thing I always try to read also, is the person, for the work will be a reflection of the person behind it. You are not only knowledgeable, but also come across as neat, organized, meticulous and fastidious. Rare breed! So far, the best and most complete and detailed explanation I have come across. Congratulations and thanks a million! You have answered many questions I had and others I did not even knew to ask.

caddisking: Which was does the lathe go on the floor and dam? Smooth or rough side up?

HomeAdditionPlus: @carmegkin The purpose of the weep holes is to allow any water that gets in under the tiles to have an exit path to the drain. The weep holes are effectively above the liner. You need to make sure that the drain assembly connects into the PVC J-trap under the shower pan. I'm not sure what you mean by installing the drain on top of the concrete. At this point I just go with what you've got.

9491ryan: Thank you sir. I've purchased your ebook for this task. I'm looking forward to it. I'll probably use the hardibacker cement board because my ceiling isn't too high. Should I tile the ceiling part with the hardibacker board?

Victor Guerra: I dred that i have to rip out my cheap plastic corner shower. This helps me get an idea on what I will need to start this project. Thx!

carmegkin: @HomeAdditionPlus I'm not sure of proper terminology, but in this video I see that the drain is screwed to the sub-floor and then the first layer of mortar is placed. So what I was asking is can you screw the drain into concrete, then place your membrane, expose weep holes, and continue with a final layer of mortar? I'm assuming your saying it is okay as long as the drain assembly can reach the J-trap? Thanks so much for your help!

HomeAdditionPlus: Its stapled directly to the wall studs.

notta3d: This was a good video. What are your thoughts on the pre-fabricated shower pans? They seem pretty good to me, but would like your thoughts.

HomeAdditionPlus: I highly recommend purchasing my "Shower Pan Membrane Liner Installation Ebook" on HomeAdditionPlus. It will answer all your questions and ensure you do it right. The Ebook is for both a wood subfloor and a concrete slab.

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: @clapperbells The membrane liner is sandwiched in between two mortar layers. The felt paper helps as a moisture barrier and most importantly prevents the wicking away of moisture form the first mortar layer as it cures.

ringopuppers: Excellent! Make me want to go rip out my shower and put in a new custom one! :) Thanks!

mpwhat .: Thanks for this tutorial it is extremely helpful. Just curious if you used the same mortart mix in both layers? They were both the quik-crete sand topping mix? Thanks so much!

HomeAdditionPlus: @carmegkin Mortar is made from water, cement and sand, whereas concrete is made from water, cement, sand and chipped rock. You use a mortar in the shower pan so that there is no risk of sharp edges on the dried cement mortar bed to cut into the membrane liner. We don't place mesh in the top layer since it could potentiall poke a hole in the membrane liner.

tonigrl1: try turning the clamping ring upside down.

ballincat11: @HomeAdditionPlus I am an aspiring general contractor. I am 18 and already enrolled in a community college but i am only taking my generals. I am just wondering if there is any advice you could give me or any info you could provide me about how to gain on the job experience. Please i know it will be a hard and long journey but i am wlling to face the challeng because this is what i really want to do with my life and throough the grace of God anything is possible. Please and thankyou! Godbless

vilma hernandez: hi i just wanted to ask u how you put the 3 2/4 together for the curb do you use any kind of nails or just the liquid nail glue.thanks.

HomeAdditionPlus: If you prefer. Its a vapor barrier, however. It is not a material for shedding water down to the liner.

happydaystile: Being a tile guy for the last five years and learning from a good old boy that has owned and operated his own tile business for 35 years, I have a certain respect for those who know what they are doing. I will say that your shower will stand for a few years and that you have done more than most tile guys out there. I will also say that there are easier more sure proof ways out there. If I were you I would check out the laticrete waterproofing system. Warrantied for life.

HomeAdditionPlus: smooth side up.

HomeAdditionPlus: @starbucking It acts as a moisture barrier.

arreguin1969: My flooring is concrete floor do i need felt paper....and what is it? Do I need a metal lath, being that I have concrete floor? What kind of mortar should I use, there are so many? Thanks, great video...

zykopat: Awesome vid! I'm redoing the basement bathroom and I watch this vid at every step of the project to make sure I get it right.

Lindsay Noyes: EXCELLENT VIDEO. I've been searching for 2 days for the details. This was great. I also liked the comment on weep holes using scrungie sponge. Thanks so much. gcn

Bionic Russ: Your the best!

Alan Wheeler: I am in the process of making a 2.5 x 5 ft shower. The plywood subfloor is 1 inch think. I am concerned about the weight of the shower on the support beams. Is there any danger the shower will be too heavy and cause the whole floor to collapse?

HomeAdditionPlus: @Alltiletube No, I've never experienced curb swelling or shrinking due to temperature variation. The temperature in most house varies from 65 degrees to 75 degrees, at least where I live. Possibly the small temperature spread is why I have not seen this issue ever.

9491ryan: Oh OK, I was told that drywall would not work with a shower, but I guess the green board is different. Thanks very much.

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

HomeAdditionPlus: @theneighborzzz1011 Yes, any home improvement center has lath.

HomeAdditionPlus: I use liquid nails and 3-1/2 inch corrosion resitant screws. You can also use a 4x4, instead of the 2x4s for a shallower curb.

Wegner Clan: Hi, Mark. Quick question---how do you attach the 15# felt paper and metal lath to a concrete foundation so it doesn't move around when you trowel in the mortar and float it? Thanks.

vixfix3: Thanks so much Pebbles around the weep holes.....Awesome Just going that extra yard I appreciate your advice Thanks so much....Max

Hutchins7308: Hi, I have ZERO experience in this. Im attempting to do a custom 4x10 handicap accessible shower for my 15 y/o daughter who is in a wheelchair. However it is being done in a mobile home. It will be done on a 3/4 plywood subfloor. I see that I can add more plywood however I want to keep the height at a minimum seeing as she will be entering the shower in a w/c. My main concern is the weight. 2 layers of mortar, cement board, tile etc. Should I reinforce it more than with another sheet of plywood

HomeAdditionPlus: @jrodmac21 Its not useless. Its prevent mortar from clogging up the weep holes and preventing water to drain out through them in the event of a crack in the tile/grout and final layer of mortar.
