In response to Re: Shower base over vinyl floor?
You are almost certainly better of installing the shower enclosure directly on the subfloor (or cement board if you are using any, not likely if you are using sheet vinyl). You want the mortar to adhere to its base and it will not adhere well to the vinyl. Run a bead of caulk around the edge of the enclosure at the floor if you are concerned about leakage around the base. Good luck - CM

: I am about to install a prefab shower unit and wonder if I can lay the sheet vinyl floor in the new bathroom all the way uner the location of the shower. This would seem to protect against leakage of small amounts of water at the edge the shower. On the negative side, I am concerned that movement of the resilient vinyl floor would over a long period of time disrupt the mortar I am setting the unit in. Any helpful thoughts on this issue?
