  • bathroom floor

    hello, i have heard alot about keri, i was wondering what the benifits would be to using kerdi as opposed to wire mesh and scratch coat, or cement board on the floor when laying carerra stone on the floor. i know kerdi is very expensive

    I think what you are referring to is Kerdi. Kerdi is only a water proofing membrane. You still need the what ever type of backer board is suitable for the application.

        You should still have proper foundation under your tiles. I believe the ditra will prevent some cracking from flexing floors but no flexing is still the best.

          Yeah I also heard about that water proof boards.. I think they are also a good choice to make your bathroom water proof. A plumber told me that there are very rare cases of that sheet leakage.. i think you should use that but be sure when you install that.

            I think you are talking about Kedri. It is really a good water proofing membrane also very helpful to use in any type of water leakage stooping purpose. It is very expensive but very effective in water proofing.

              Been wonder. I've used Kerdi on more than a cpl of dozen shower I've built so I'm not fresh to the stuff and I do love it although it's hard convincing customers why they require to waste an extra $600-$1000+ to install the things.
              It gets me to thinking every time I do it why not just paint the walls with a cpl of coats of observe or hydro ban or alike.

                I would not consider paint of any type a suitable surface to fasten tiles.
