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?

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.

Our concrete floor was built without under layment before poured and it can sweat. Will this help if used before tiling?

Asked by: Malinda
Possibly. There is some pressure tending to push moisture through your concrete floor, where it then condenses (sweats), and coating the floor won't change that pressure. If that pressure is small, applying Redgard may solve the sweating problem on that floor, but that moisture will go somewhere else. If that pressure is small, the moisture will most likely go sideways through the concrete, and it may do no more than that. However, if the pressure is high enough, it can push the waterproofing layer off the floor, or travel far enough through the concrete that it will cause damage somewhere else, such as rotting a sill plate. If all you ever have is sweating, as opposed to standing water, and if the sweating is only some of the time, you may be OK with the Redgard and tiling. But when moisture is tending to move through concrete, there is always a risk for trouble. Unfortunately, you probably don't have a solution available at this point to block the moisture altogether, which is the ultimate solution.

Customer Reviews

RedGard 1 Gal. Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 549.
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.

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.

Goes on as easy with a brush or roller just like you would with paint. Dries bright red so you know when it is dry. No cons, really good product. We had a leak in our tile shower. Pulled up a section of the tile and water was standing under it. Cleaned everything up and peeled back the Redgard and underneath was completely dry. Product was put on in 2012. Excellent water proofing product. I repaired the shower and put three coats on before replacing tile. I am sure it will work great again.

I used it as a water proofing membrane for a shower. Followed directions and primed surface first with a reduced 50/50 mix with water. Then applied two more coats full strength with a roller after placing alkali resistant mesh tape at seams of floor and walls and around the flange of the drain. The walls were protected by placing 15lb roofing felt behind the cement backer board.

This is an inexpensive solution to insuring there are no moisture problems after all the work done to create a tub/shower surround. I use concrete backer boards, tape and thinset the seems than brush on a coat of RedGard. It takes minutes and works so well. Make sure you use the right kind thinset to apply your particular kind of tiles to the RedGard for proper adhesion.

The product is super easy to use--just roll it on, wait an hour and roll a second coat. It allowed me to apply tile directly to the sheetrock without backer board (and having the resulting tile surface stick way out from the wall).The only downside is that this product costs a pretty penny.
