    Re: tile over laminate counter tops?

    You "have to" fasten the boards together with CBU screws (or roofing nails but CBU screws are better imo). The adhesive should be a thinset rather than a mastic under the CBU as thinset is more...

    Re: How do I tile the Ceiling in my Bath?

    Use Laticrete 255 multimax on ceilings. No need to brace the tiles. Be sure to back-butter your tiles for good adhesion. Any light weight thinset should work but be sure to back butter your tiles....

  5. Re: Glue/adhesive for tile "in-situ" and underlayment for tile.

    I wouldn't use ANY kind of glue or adhesive in a bath/shower area. Use a good thinset and do it right.

    Re: Separating caulk

    You might want to try color matched caulk thats specifically made for tubs and showers. You can get close to the exact grout color to match if necessary. Don't buy the cheap stuff. I found that the...

    Re: replacing linoleum in bathroom with tile

    After you remove the existing floor coverings you'll be left with your subfloor. The subfloor is "not" good enough to put any cbu (cement board unit) over. You should have approx 1 1/4" of plywood...

    Re: tile over laminate counter tops?

    Same way...thinset and screw 1/4" Hardie to the edge then use fiberglass tape thinsetting the two together. Make sure you fold over the tape evenly and when you put the thinset on be sure to trowel...

    Re: tile over laminate counter tops?

    Yes you can thinset and screw down Hardie over the formica. Use 1/4" hardie.

    Re: Grout, grout and caulk or just caulk?

    The area between the tub and walls should NEVER be grouted. Use a color matched sanded caulk made for tile.
    I also use the same caulk for all my inside corners.

    Re: Can Someone Help Me Fast?

    Thats not the case in a lot of places. In NY the HO can either pay $500 OR be responsible for any repairs found up to a year I think it is. Most around here pay the $500.

    Re: leaky bathroom ceiling

    If it's constant it seems as though it would be a pipe. Is there an attic up there? Water supply line up there?. You need to give much more info about whats in that ceiling.
