How to Use RedGard® Liquid Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane



http://www.custombuildingproducts.com/products/surface-preparation/membranes-underlayments/redgard.aspx RedGard® Waterproofing Membrane and Crack Prevention Membrane is a ready-to-use elastomeric membrane for both commercial and residential tile and stone application.

Suited for interior and exterior substrates, RedGard® creates a continuous waterproofing barrier with outstanding adhesion and reduces crack transmission in tile and stone floors. It bonds directly to metal drains, PVC, stainless steel and ABS drain assemblies and can be used as a slab-on-grade moisture vapor barrier under all types of floor coverings.

    Not so concerned about Red Guards waterproofings ability as I am with thinset tile adhesion to it.

    Can I put a plastic tub surround over Redguard?

    Way over priced. Very poor coverage. Someone is getting rich on this. Looks like hype marketed, color changing caulk. Take a look at Zinsser Watertite.

    Can this be used outside? I have a concrete stairs coming down the side of my garage wall. I get dampness in garage wall that is opposite of stairs. I'm sure the water is sitting and seeping in. Think this would help?

    I wonder if this is a must do? What would happen if this is not done and how long would it take to show signs and what are tie signs? I have a good friend who did his bathroom and he put ceramic tile over Durock and I wonder if he is gonna have problems or maybe not. Thank you.

    To bad he troweled the thinset in the wrong direction on the wall before installing the tile. You should always trowel so that air has the shortest path to escape. Even though he does a good job of moving the tile back and forth, as soon as the middle ridges collapse there is no way for air to escape making it hard to reach the recommended 95% coverage in a wet area.

    Can this be used for a moisture problem in your basement, or should I use Dry lok.

    can I apply this on a dry bed for shower wich is Portland cement and sand? I would like apply it and then tile right over it is that possible?

    will adhesive used for acrylic panels adhere to this.
    was undecided on tile or rebath's acrylic wall and the shower has cement board 3/4 of the way up the wall with blue drywall above that to the ceiling. if i apply this over both (cement board and drywall) can i then install the surround or tile.
    will the acrylic bond to the cement board/drywall coated with redgard.
    if i went with tile i would use a modified thinset to bond the tile to the cement board/drywall coated with redgard.

    I was wondering if Redgaurd is a suitable crack prevention membrane for slab on grade with in-floor heating. I know it is listed for slab on grade but using it with in floor heating is not specified. Some professionals I have spoke with expressed some concern that as the redgaurd is heated through the in-floor heating that it may possibly emit harmful vapors or odors.

    We are building a walk in shower. I have a concrete floor that already has a slope built in to the drain. Unfortunately the finish on the concrete floor is troweled smooth and not brushed. Can I just put RedGard directly on the concrete floor and then put on my thinset and then tile? I don't have room for any mortar base.

    I've heard nothing but good things about this product. I'm currently doing a remodel and was wondering if it could be applied over Fiberock backerboard, which will be used as the underlay of the floors and in transition from the floated cement of the shower?

    ok this might be a dumb question. But can you paint over redgard (after it has dried obviously)?

    I will be installing tile in my master bathroom. Can I put this product directly on the plywood floor or do I install it over the cement board or both? My son likes over flowing the tub and I want a little more protection. I was thinking of applying it by the tub and in front of the shower stall.

    front porch has leaked for years into the basement (home is natural stone masonry) recently had the stone on the porch demo'd back to the block & was going to update the porch & hopefully fix the leaking. Was looking for something to seal the block vertically & not have problems with mortar not sticking to it. We plan to go back with a dry stack crab orchard rubel stone. Will Redgard work for this particular type application?

    I just bought this stuff after pouring my shower pan (dry pack- 4:1 ratio sand to portland) The product is wonderful and well worth the price of peace of mind- I used it in addition to having a 40 mill liner between the pre pitch and final pitch mud beds- my only question is- the dry pack mud bed leaves a sandy residue – even after using a vacuum to remove the lose sand, as soon as you rub the the shower bed, more sand comes up. according to the tile experts, this is normal and I was told to redguard over this- but the sand keeps getting in the paint. will this effect the integrity of the redguard membrane? I went 3 layers thick- and it's nearly impossible to scrape the redguard off the shower pan mud bed. thanks

    I didn't catch if Red Guard can be used over Green Board Drywall ?

    I am building a small basement shower and the slab has a drain in it from an old shower installation. Can I put Red Gard right onto the sloped mortar I plan on putting over the concrete and use it as a pan liner to join the floor and backerboard? I then would use modified thinset over the Red Gard and put down tile

    I tried using Redguard as a liner-membrane in a plywood rainbarrel, but so far it has not held. It seems to leak the most on the lower corners and I have recoated there perhaps four times. The barrel/box is about 40 in high, so there is an amount of hydrostatic pressure. Is that the problem? What else should I try?

    I have a basement parking and above it is a garden and when it rains water seeps through the crack and there is a major leak and till the soil above dries the water seeps. How do I use Redguard and fix the crack on the sealing.

    can i use any type of thin set for tiles on top of red guard?

    This stuff is amazing! I had my son make a simple box with scrap wood and screws. Knowing that the corners wouldn't be square and there would be gaps. Some 1/8 in and even bigger. We then put 2 coats of redguard on the inside, let dry and filled to the top with water, appox 8-10 gal. To his amazement it didn't leak at all the first day. To my amazement it didn't leak at all the FIRST WEEK! I'm a true believer now.
