Questions & Answers

Can I use Redguard on concrete block planter boxes?

I have concrete block planter boxes attached to my home. When the house was built, the builder coated the inside of the planter boxes with roofing tar before filling them with dirt. I'm getting a musty smell inside my home presumably from water getting behind the original coating. Is Redguard the right product for this application, and can it be applied over old sound tar?
Asked by: Pyramid
I am not sure it would work over tar.. I would test it carefully to ensure it did not soften the tar.. and put on several coats but it is for exterior applications per the manufacturer.

can I use this for an outdoor tiles porch

Asked by: cheo14e
Yes, but why is the reason? If you using it to prevent cracks from the floor to the tile is a good idea since the tile will set on the Redgard membrane and will flex.

Will 1 gal of Red Guard cover the area for my bathtub surround (32 x 60 x 58)?

Asked by: ashley
It should. Depends on what material your surround is and how thick you do it. The 3.5 gallon lasted us two shower surrounds and floors and we still had 1.5 gallons left. We did two coats. Paint it/roll it on and it'll last you longer

It is the simplest and best way to make a shower stall and pan waterproof. It is a great product to lay tile on to, all of your surfaces are flat and all your corners are square. I have not seen any sign of seepage, leakage, or water damage outside my shower install which was completed five years ago. I had a shower valve go bad and had to replace the valve, I cut open the wall behind the shower and found no signs of a RedGard failure. I will continue to use this product in future builds and I will recommend this product to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems great so far This product came highly recommended by the gentleman working in the flooring department at my local Home Depot. We used it underneath a felt underlayment as a moisture barrier in our kitchen under bamboo floors. Time will tell how it holds up, but it took several weeks after applying the Red Gard before our special order flooring arrived, during which time, the kids managed to spill some water on it. It wasn't a major spill, but the Red Gard seemed to do a good job of preventing seepage to the subfloor beneath. It is quite tenacious, and I would recommend using a throw-away nap on your roller for application.

Dries to a rock-hard plastic protective coating. Not cheap but much more cost-effective than a mold abatement service due to moisture or fixing a leaking kitchen ceiling (our bathroom is directly above the kitchen). Product comes as a paste-like consistency (similar consistency to sour cream). I brushed it on using a 4" brush. Cleans up in a snap with cold water.

This is my first time trying this product, its not much different than bruhing and or rolling it on. Nothing to complain about , just all and all a good user friendly product. Nice to know when you apply an item into your work whatever it may be , the results are just as it says and that gives me piece of mind knowing i dont have to second guess if it is going to perform correctly..Thanks "CUSTOM" for a great product...

I watched a lot a you tube videos and found this to be the best product i could find. I am redoing a shower i used hardy board and this as a back up encase water should get behind the hardy board this product will prevent that . What the product really is , is a liquid rubber so there is no chance of water getting behind the hardy board. In the picture i have done 3 coats. The product goes on pink and drys red, even after all the coats i put on this i still have about half a container left. So the product goes far , clean up is easy just allow the product to dry and you can peal it off. Only down side to this product is it is smelly. But its nothing to bad no more than a latex paint. I applied my product with a paint brush you can use a roller if you wanted to . Great product when i do the next 2 bathrooms i will use this i am also thinking about using this in the kitchen when i redue the kitchen for the wet areas

I had seen this used in residential new construction but it was my first time to use it myself. It goes on easy with a brush or roller. The bright color also makes it easy to see where you have missed spots. Two or thee coats are recommended and two seemed quite adequate to me. Coverage for me was a bit better than listed in the product description. I used it over pre-cleaned Hardiebacker and that may be why it went further than in some other situations. The texture it creates seemed to provide a good surface for thinset tile application with good adhesion. The color change during drying is pretty dramatic and lets you see where drying has taken place. Odor is minimal or modest and is more like an ammonia smell than paint. It's recommended to use nitrile gloves applying it and that seems like good advice since this stuff has strong adhesion. It cleans up easily with water and dried spots or drips that may escape your dropcloth clean up pretty easily too. The instructions are quite clear and don't follow those YouTube videos that show it only applied to joints and edges. Cement backer boards are NOT waterproof. Coat the entire surface and don't try to save a few bucks and end up with water/moisture going through the backer behind grout joints.

Two of us used this to seal around a window over a tub tile installation and to seal a shower bed and wall prior to tiling. The tile guy who treated the window said it was "messy stuff," but when I put two coats on the shower I found it to go on according to the instructions. Read the instructions, wear plastic gloves (unless you don't care that the stuff never comes off,) and wash the application tools promptly with water when you are finished. No apparent odor or temporary side effects. Pink turns to red and you are finished.
