Customer Questions & Answers

Can i use this stuff to install my mosaic kitchen backsplash.

Asked by: Vinnie
as always, read instructions on label. And ask your Home Depot tile person if this product will work on the "mosaic" tile that you choose. Size ,color and shape can make a difference in the mortar you use.

Is it good to use this to tape cement board

Asked by: kb123
This is what I used for smoothing a previous (sloppy) job. For the taped section, I moistened it very slightly and it worked fine. I only wish I had a "before" pix. Dries well, little to no cracking on thick spots.

Asked by: RC
I used a square notched trowel with 1/4" notches which up till now has worked for me both on the wall and setting floor tile. It floats large tile nicely and has been holding well.

If I used this to tape cement board ( it's too late to re-do), can I cover it with redgard?

Asked by: JohnK
as long as you allow it to completely dry redgard willwork. Don't use it on top of redgard use regular mix mortar with fast set cement.

I used this to set 12 inch sheets of stone mosaic tiles that are 2 x 2 inches on a floor section. To my surprise and dismay, the mortar never dried. It's been 6 weeks or more. Now I'll have to remove and redo the whole job. I would never use this again.

Wow, after reading several of the reviews, I am definitely in the minority here. I found this thin-set to be absolutely perfect for tiling my backsplash. The mortar stuck easily to the drywall. It was very sticky and held the tiles securely to the wall. I was using the glass and ceramic interlocking tiles. They didn't slide down at all once adhered and I found the mortar dried pretty quickly. I was in a pinch for time so I did not follow the instructions to give the tile 24 - 72 hours to dry before grouting. I finished the tiling at 10pm on a Saturday and Sunday morning I started grouting at 9am and had absolutely no problems with the tiles shifting or moving around. They were rock solid and I was extremely pleased with the final results of the job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product!! I've done dozens of tile jobs and have always mixed my own thin set. This particular job was a small bathroom floor. Simple enough. I bought 2 gallons of this pre-mixed. First gallon went down thick and hard to evenly trowel, the second went down fairly smooth, better consistency. I let the thin set dry for 48 hours and the mix is still pliable. Never will I buy this stuff again. I'll just mix it myself and save some money as well.

I do not recommend if you use this on any tile larger than 12x12, or if you're trying to complete your project in a timely manner. I tiled my 6'x5' bathroom floor over a week ago and the thin-set mortar is still not dry under several tiles (mostly the middle of the tiles). I wish I googled thin-set mortar prior to this job because I never would have used this. Go with the bag that requires mixing.

I tried to lay a fireplace hearth and surround. The horizontal hearth tiles never dried and the wall tiles 'slipped' after I removed the spacers. None of it dried, even after 4 days. Had to remove all tiles and broke one in the process. Does Home Depot actually test any of this stuff? Never again!

This is really "mastic" not mortar and should never be used in a wet area (contrary to the back of the can). A rude technician with Custom Bldg. Products tells me I have to scrape off the material I used on my cement backer board even though it lists this material as a valid underlayment right on the container. The reality is you can use it, but never with Redguard and never in a wet area. This stuff should only be used for something like decorative tiles in a dry area. Wish this product was properly labeled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine for me I have been building a new tub surround with 6in subway tile and glass mosaic and so far this product has worked well. I don't have a lot of experience tiling, but I'm about 40% complete and have not had any problems. I am taking my time so it's weeks, not days, so drying time hasn't been an issue. I had to take a few tiles off that I wasn't happy with, and I had a hard time with a pry bar and hammer getting the tiles off, so I trust they will stay put. It is thick and I had to practice to get to where I understood the best way to apply it.

I used this to lay marble tile (12" cappuccino from HD which is gorgeous BTW) onto hardibacker and THEN read the reviews the next morning when I wasn't at home. I stressed ALL DAY about coming home to find the tiles laying in a wet mess and having to re-do it all. Got home and the tiles are as solid as a rock, 36 hours later. No problems whatsoever. Maybe it's because the marble is porous or that it was troweled on well, I don't know why it doesn't work for some folks. The ease of use and clean up factor is fantastic. However - the sf chart is wrong, therefore making the product pretty pricey. It said I should get 50 sf with this gallon using a 1/4" square trowel but I only got about 15 sf. For my 35 sf project, it's worth it to mix up the powdered stuff I think. But for a very small project, this is a good option.
