I am in the process of having a bathroom re tiled. I would like info on the following:
1. Which method to waterproof the shower floor pan is most effective, hot mopping or using a plastic liner. The original was hot mopped. What are the drawbacks and advantages of each method.
2. For the tile bathroom floor, the tiler wanted to use a mesh wire stapled into the plywood floor, then mud it. There was no waterproof paper placed over the plywood. I wanted the paper over the plywood and then the wire and then the mud. The tiler says this is the way it is done today anf that the mud and wire mesh will form a water proof seal. I want some barrier between the wire and the plywood. What is the best method?
Any information would be appreciated. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
