Tile kit waterproofs tub and shower walls

The Schluter-Kerdi-Board Kit from Schluter-Systems includes materials needed to build waterproof walls for a standard tub surround or an acrylic shower base.

Presented in a package that can easily fit into most vehicles, the company says, the kit prevents damaging leaks and mold growth due to moisture penetration.

The kit includes 8 pieces of ½ in.-thick Kerdi-Board waterproof building panels that can be screwed directly onto wall studs.

The panels are 48 x 38 in. and can be cut with a utility knife to fit wall areas up to 101 sq. ft.

The kit includes a 5 in. wide strip of Kerdi-Band waterproof membrane that can be cut and then installed using thin-set mortar to seal these areas.

Tiles are then set directly onto the Kerdi-Board with thin-set mortar.
