Shower Tiles
Posted by Bob P. on September 14, 1998 at 22:38:50:
Terry, I have just installed a fiberglass shower pan
and I am ready to start tiling with 12x12 granite
tiles. I need to know how low to go with my tiles.
The backer board is 1/8th inch up from the vertical
lip of the pan and is flush with it. Should the first
tile go over this joint and rest on the horizontal
part of the lip or should it's bottom edge start
where the backer board ends. If it should rest on the
horizontal part of the lip what material should go
behind the bottom of the tile to keep the grout from
falling into that space between the back of the tile
and the vertical face of the lip. Hope this is not too
confusing. thanks
