Customer Questions & Answers

Gray or White?

This mortar comes in gray or white. Can anyone explain to me why you would use one color over the other? Thank you,
Asked by: ImBlue
the gray is as its natural color, whereas the white is bleached (not like the table top bleach, just the process) which makes it cost a tad bit more. the white is recommend for your glass and light colored mosaics and tile. pretty much, If you are using any light colored tile OR grout, you want to use the white. if you use the gray, you are running the risk of the grey bleeding through the tile and grout

Is this good for use on 12"x24" ceramic tile on a shower wall over hardie board?

I am not sure if I should use adhesive or thinset on the shower walls.
Asked by: Sparky
DO NOT USE ADHESIVE!!!!! Only use Thinset on any tile unless you are doing a backsplash or something small. Mastic or Adhesive will fail, especially in a wet area. Your better option would be the Versabond LFT because your tile has a side longer than 15". The LFT will be stiffer thus supplying more grip and stick when you put it on the wall. Also please make sure you waterproof your shower. Just using hardie board is not the way to go. Check out the waterproofing systems and follow instructions to a T. It's worth the small investment and time vs having to rip it all out and start from scratch. Check out the JohnBridge dot com website as well. There is a ton of great info on everything related to tiling that you could ever need to know.

Will this work good to thinset my cement board to the subfloor?

Asked by: Brock
Yes, if your tile is larger than 12 x 12 I recommend a large format mortar on top of the backer board. This mortar is fine for under the backer board. Use a 1/4 x 1/4 trowel and set backer board on wet mortar.

Can it be apply directly over Durock cement board to cover an outdoor kitchen with veneer stone

Asked by: FamiliaD4
Yes and cement board is the best surface for adhesion to tile over

VersaBond Gray 50 lb. Fortified Thin-Set Mortar is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 257.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am using it as a metal lath scratch coat and bonding thinset for manufactured stone on the vert... I am using it as a metal lath scratch coat and bonding thinset for manufactured stone on the vertical exterior of my house. It meets the ASTM standards for exterior use. It has worked out very well, and once set, the stone has been impossible to pull off. In my mind, the price point is great compared to other modified thin sets, it gets the job done, has handled freeze-thaw in the few weeks it has been in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VersaBond gray 50# This product has worked very well with remodeling this house. Except for the bedrooms and bathrooms it will be tiled. With the living room, hall, kitchen and dining area complete, we have purchased lots of this product. Now a 600 sq. ft. rec room is being tiled. This product has lived up to expectations and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I ever use I use this stuff for every tile job. I've tried other products that was cheaper but you pay for what you get. Always a strong hold, sets fairly quick, and never have to worry about the quality. Redoing our Master bath and I'm using it for the floor as well as the walls. Great stuff.

VersaBond is the only thin-set mortar I use when I have a choice in the matter. I vote VersaBond as Home Depot's single best product.

I have used it on over 12 jobs, and probably about 1000 lbs worth. I prefer to use this over standard mortar, it is much smoother, and easier to comb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good thin-set mortar. This thin-set mortar is a quality mortar and fairly easy to use. However, it does have a fairly short set time so you need to install your tile quickly. Also, I highly recommend that you remove all excess mortar from between your tile prior to it completely drying as it is much harder to remove once it has fully set. I use a painters knife to remove the excess mortar and quickly wipe the tile edges with a paper towel. This leaves a clean groove for installing your grout once the mortar has completely cured.
