Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Phenomenal Product
I absolutely love this product! It is a bit messy to handle at first but once you get the hang of it its great. I applied first coat on the corners and put 6 inch fiber glass tape (ordered online) on it. Then I applied another coat making sure the tape sticks. I also applied this product to the curb n wrapped it with the fiber glass tape. I even applied redgard to the better bench I installed in the shower. I applied 3 coats of redgard to the walls and floor and 4 coats on the corners.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hellozt Seems to do it's job well.
Redgard is a little cosly but it goes on well and creates a solid waterproofing layer. My house came with a shower filled with black mold from the thinset mortar leaking for years whenever the shower sprayed on the walls. Redoing the bathroom was my first project and I'm quite happy picking this as my waterproofing layer. I will note there are a couple spots that after drying didn't seal well and needed to be picked off and redone. The bright red color makes it easy to find anywhere that wasn't covered well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tdz Coverage listed is incorrect
The bucket lists the coverage at 120-140 sq ft. Not even close to 385.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hershpersh Easy to Use!
After lots of research we decided to use Redgard over Wonderboard cement board for the very large shower we built. It was easy to use, just like painting. I wore a respirator during application and made sure the room was well ventilated to keep the smell out of the rest of the home. After it dries the smell disappears. I did three coats for enough coverage to waterproof the shower walls and ceiling. I used this along with a traditional shower bed with CPE liner (with radiant heating wire). Modified thinset (Versabond rocks!) had no problem sticking to the Redgard, even using large 12x24" tiles on part of the wall. I will definitely be using Redgard for all future shower projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reitzcustomcreations Should be a must for building codes
I specialize in bathroom remodels, and this product should be required anytime a shower is being built. I've been using it for over 6 years. it is easily applied and dries fairly quickly depending upon atmosphere conditions. I will not do a job without redgarding the entire shower. It works great for a crack suppressant also. do yourself a huge favor, bite the bullet and spend the money, its worth every penny to know you shower won't leak

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mini490 Protection against water damage
Easy to apply, it gives us a sense of security that if we have a leak from a bathroom fixture the membrane will keep it from damaging our floor and finished lower level.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sirjames600 Saved a tile job gone bad.
I had never heard of this product, but learned about it in order to salvage a bad shower tile installation job that was stopped before it got worse. It goes on easily and creates a totally water proof barrier behind your tile. No more finding out two years from now that the installer screwed up and now you have major problems because of leaks in your shower.
The only thing I would add to their instructions is to ignore using a trowel. The stuff is too thin. Just use a big paint brush and slosh it on in the corners and over the mesh tape along the seams. Then use a roller to do the flat surfaces.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew Very nice product
RedGard is a very effective product. I used it for building a shower and painted two coats to create a waterproof barrier. At least one review mentioned that it flaked off but I believe this was because that person did not allow their concrete to cure long enough. I painted the RedGard directly onto the dry pack concrete base I built and it worked fine but I made sure to let the base cure for a month beforehand. This product is also really nice for shower niches to make sure that all the tight corners are waterproofed. A little pricey but so easy to install (I used a brush for corners and a paint roller for larger flat areas) it's worth it in my opinion. In my experience the actual coverage is better than what is listed in the product specs.
