|In response to Re: How to insulate a full bath?|
I had a similar question. This is the resulting thread:
I highly recommend this site for tile advice. Search on the key words "moisture barrier". If you need help, post a question. Alot of pros will respond and give advice and encouragement.
The whole issue of moisture barriers seems to be a can of worms. You will get conflicting information. You would think by now there would be a uniform approach but that doesn't seem to be the case.
What I have been able to gather is this:
1) If using green board (do not use for showers of tub surrounds), do not use a moisture barrier. Kraft paper on insulation is okay.
2) If CBU (cement baker underlayment), use a moisture barrier of 4 mil poly or 15 lb tar paper.
By the way I am a DYIer. So you will need to do further research.
