    Thread Bump. Project back on track for this year.

    JW,. Let me see your *flashing* / expansion gap treatment between tub edge and mating wall...
    I'd be curious what techniques to employ

    Thanks JW. Pics speak a milliion words. Your pics were *more or less* what I have in mind, re: sheet membrane as the flashing.

    I'm going to *google kerdi fix* cause I can think of 10 zillion other great urethane sealants I can buy and use that are proven performers for me.
    VOC....aside.

    Is that a triple deck staggered niche u built there ?

    Most urethanes skin over quickly. Kerdi Fix is not a easy find at the supply houses around here, and if I was to get my hands on it, I would be very suspect on it's production date. Tons of good/great Urethanes like Vulkem, Sonneeborn, SS, etc. I've used them when sealing perimeter holes, if not sealing on the inside, the sides of a window during rough framing. Kerdi Fix is just hard to get, probably will be outdated on the stuff if I do get it, and well, as you know, in the tile world if not anything using construction materials, it's good practice to check batch code dates
