Questions & Answers

can I use this for an outdoor tiles porch

Asked by: cheo14e
Yes, but why is the reason? If you using it to prevent cracks from the floor to the tile is a good idea since the tile will set on the Redgard membrane and will flex.

RedGard 1 Gal. Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 250.

Two of us used this to seal around a window over a tub tile installation and to seal a shower bed and wall prior to tiling. The tile guy who treated the window said it was "messy stuff," but when I put two coats on the shower I found it to go on according to the instructions. Read the instructions, wear plastic gloves (unless you don't care that the stuff never comes off,) and wash the application tools promptly with water when you are finished. No apparent odor or temporary side effects. Pink turns to red and you are finished.

Used this product with mesh over seams and corners on Densshield board Work okay, good adhesion. Then applied it over a mud concrete for the shower floor. The concrete had 35 days of cure time before it was applied iwith 2 coats. When the walls were completed, a few globs of thin set had dried on top of the coated surface. I would wipe them up if I noticed them with water and sponge. The dried spots when I removed them, removed the Redquard. As I pulled around the spots, the Redquard started to pull and peel off quite easily off the entire floor! Good thing I had installed a PVC water barrier under the concrete. It wont bond well to the core of Denshield either. I would not trust this as the only water barrier on a concrete floor.

It is the simplest and best way to make a shower stall and pan waterproof. It is a great product to lay tile on to, all of your surfaces are flat and all your corners are square. I have not seen any sign of seepage, leakage, or water damage outside my shower install which was completed five years ago. I had a shower valve go bad and had to replace the valve, I cut open the wall behind the shower and found no signs of a RedGard failure. I will continue to use this product in future builds and I will recommend this product to all my friends.

Did this in my shower remodel last night, so we will see how the tile adheres, but it was easy to put on. I did a primer coat first, which I just mixed some water with it and made it a thin consistency and painted it on. The primer coat was super messy and drippy. Then did 2 full coats not watered down, which is a pudding type consistency. The smell is strong but not horrible. It rolled on fine with a roller, and I used a brush for the corners. It dried really quickly (maybe a half hour in between coats). This is my first shower remodel, and I am a complete DIYer, and a girl, so hopefully it all turns out well. I have watched 5000 utube videos, and read a million online reviews, and forums to get to this point. So far this was the easiest part of the project so far.

I actually used a brush, first to do all the corners and seams, then to coat the rest. I put 2 coats on all the seams. Clean up was easy with water. I used it previously on my other shower floor. This time I used it on my entire master shower, walls and floor, seat, and niche. I even used it to re-coat a couple of my tools that had lost their rubber grips; worked like a charm! When the connection on my cord for charging my cell phone started to separate, I even used a Q-tip to put the redgard around the area. What great stuff!!

RedGard is an easy to use product that not only applies and dries quickly, but also provides the water sealing protection you want and need in wet areas such as tub surrounds and shower stalls. The product resembles a thick Pepto Bismol out of the container, but dries to a bright red colored membrane. Once it dries to its final bright red color, it is ready for recoating, tiling, or whatever the next step may be in your project. Two coats are recommended for full coverage and protection. This product is expensive, but worth the money for the protection and the peace of mind it provides knowing that you've gone that extra step in water proofing your project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems great so far This product came highly recommended by the gentleman working in the flooring department at my local Home Depot. We used it underneath a felt underlayment as a moisture barrier in our kitchen under bamboo floors. Time will tell how it holds up, but it took several weeks after applying the Red Gard before our special order flooring arrived, during which time, the kids managed to spill some water on it. It wasn't a major spill, but the Red Gard seemed to do a good job of preventing seepage to the subfloor beneath. It is quite tenacious, and I would recommend using a throw-away nap on your roller for application.

Spread rate was slightly better than indicated on the instructions printed on the bucket. I applied two coats and then allowed to cure for 24hrs before installing tile in the tub-surround remodel. I covered the Red Gard before snapping pics, however you can see I slopped over to the wall from the 1/2 in. backer board. I have done only one other tub/shower rebuild in the past and this appears it will work.
