Questions & Answers

Coverage per gallon

Asked by: Mark
Depends on how thick you spread it and how many coats you apply. 1 gallon was plenty for my standard sized bathtub tile area.

Can I apply this directly over linoleum, then lay tile over top?
Asked by: codez
Linoleum sometimes has multiple layers of older linoleum underneath. If manufactured before 1980, it likely contains Asbestos in the backing, so please take that into consideration if your home was built before 1980.

Customer Reviews

RedGard 1 Gal. Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 629.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product - (also providing clarification on a wrongful 1 Star review by another customer) I have used REDGARD on walls and floors, had excellent results. Even after a year with only using 7/16" OSB on top of 3/4" subfloor, my tile is still flawless. No cracks, no issues, lot's of foot traffic. I also wanted to comment on a misleading review - 'Bill from Florida' gave this 1 star review "$675 Shot. No where on the instructions or website does it say "wait 28 days for new concrete to cure". So after 4 good days we put down the Redgard and now its peeling up. And Redgard says "you should have waited". How are you to know if you don't tell me" It is known by those in the construction industry as a rule of thumb to always "wait 28 days for new concrete to cure", before applying any type of sealant. In the manufacturers defense, concrete can cure much faster or slower depending in the mix and weather. If you are going to seal concrete, see what the manufacturer or mix plant says. REDGARD or any other manufacturer can not know your variables.

Started to remodel a bathroom, everything was cleared to start from scratch. The shower floor and walls needed to be waterproof since the previous shower had not been correctly built. Did my research to find ways to correctly rebuilt it. Looked at all the alternatives and Redguard was the one stood out. It seemed to be a simple and affective way to resolve my issue. It was applied using a brush after the adequate drying time passed a second coat was applied. After 24 hours it was completely dried and started to tile on the surface where Redguard was applied. It was fast and easy to complete the job, no issues whatsoever, placed my tiles over it with adhesive and that was it. Would definitely use again and would recommend this product to anyone wanting to waterproof their shower floors and walls. It soo simple to apply, its up to you to decide. From a simple brush to a sprayer and the best part is the clean up, just water and soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redgaurd Waterproofing Membrane Redgaurd Waterproofing Memebrane is a great product to use in any shower location. When placed over cement board it creates a waterproof barrier to prevent any moisuture from being absorbed into the cement board and being transmitted to your insulation. I have used Redgaurd now in two of my bathrooms with fantastic results and zero problems. It must be used according to the directions to ensure a 100% waterproof barrier. It does not fill gaps or voids very well so those must be taped and filled with thinset before applying Redgaurd. I give this product a 5 star rating because it is about the same price as using a plastic vapor barrier, however it is a better piece of mind to ensure that no moisture or water ever penetrates the shower so mold has zero chance to develope. For the the few extra dollars, it provides added insurance and piece of mind. A++

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used on gypcrete During a bathroom remodel, I chose this product to seal, waterproof and isolated potential cracks in the gypcrete underlayment as well as decouple the thinset and tile from the Gypcrete.. Custom only recommends this for Gypcrete 2000 and I have no idea what type of gypcrete I have. I considered Ditra but took a chance and went with Redgard instead because I couldn't afford to raise my floor 3/4". A stripped the linoleum off the floor and most of the adhesive before spaying 1 part Redgard and 3 parts cool water down as a primer. I got some of the primer on my bathtub and part of the wall but it comes off with some elbow-grease. After the primer dried, I applied two coats with a roller. Each coat went on great and it did not peel a bit. The gypcrete slab appeared to take it well and after all was dry, I laid tile with Custom Crack Prevention Mortar using a 1/2 trowel. The tile job has stood the test of time so far and I am pleased with the product. Coverage appeared to be more than in the specifications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff If you have a slab that is high in moisture, this stuff works great. We had a kitchen slab that was seeping water up through the grout of our tiles. We had the floor demo'd and new tiles put it. First, we applied Red Gard as PER THE INSTRUCTIONS!!! You need a clean debris free floor. A scraper works well. Also, the warmer the outside temp the better for application purposes. Instructions say do NOT apply with slab temp 55F or lower. I prefer a day when it's around 80F. The most important key next is to have dust vacuumed off the slab so it's clean. Then, you MUST USE A PRIMER COAT FIRST!!!!! The primer coat prevents the stuff from peeling!!!! I've done 9 floors now with the stuff and the primer is a must! Wha is the primer? It's diluted Red Gard one part, to 4 parts tap water! Then you apply it with a sponge on a stick or even a clean new sponge mop! SIMPLE!!!!! The instructions explain all of the above. If you follow the instructions, it works like a champ. The final two costs after the primer dries is applied with a paint roller on a stick. Use full strength and it's a water barrier magic carpet, under your tile or stone floor.

Turns dark red when dry in 1 - 2 hrs depending on surface and temp. Suggest using disposable brush/rollers and latex gloves to simplify clean up. Also use fabric tape vs mesh tape on seams. Sticks well to CLEAN surfaces. Two coats provides an impervious layer and confidence that water will not penetrate. Drys very firm so be careful to smooth out lumps or high spots to avoid later issues when laying tile.

Red Gard is an excellent product to use for drywall sealant in shower / wetted area. Able to apply quickly and dry extremely fast. I've used this product previously and there is no problem with doing time work over top of the Red Gard application. Be advised that the roller, roller handle and paint pan that you use can not be cleaned and will have to be discarded after use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product did not adhere to the cured thinset above... Product did not adhere to the cured thinset above shower stall. I used Home Depot Brand thinset to help plumb the existing walls for a better tile install. I applied the first coat and let dry for 24 hours, noticed a peeled edge before second coat and was able to pull off cured Redguard by hand.
