Tips for Shower tile Install with Mastic?
We recently had a friend of my husband's help him install a shower system called Prova and tile our shower. While researching grout, I stumbled across something saying that you should not use mastic in a shower? That is what they used! We will have glass up to the soffit we build above the shower so the only ventilation from the shower will be an exhaust fan in the shower and a transom glass window above the shower door to ventilate the steam. I asked a tile friend of ours about this and he stated that he would rip out the tile(down to the studs)and start over! He said that you will have issues with mold and possibly having tiles fall off if they are exposed to too much moisture. What should we do?? We are ready to grout! We are afraid that if we spend the money on the marble pieces that are to go on the shower seat and shelves and the glass walls and door that we will have to waste them if we end up having to rip out the tile in the future. Help!!
