A water barrier or sealer should be applied to QUIKRETE® Deck Mud prior to tile installation. The Deck Mud will not act as a water barrier on its own.
QUIKRETE® Deck Mud Mortar Mix is normal setting; it will typically begin to stiffen after 60-90 minutes and will be '‘thumbprint hard’ after 4-6 hours.
QUIKRETE® Deck Mud can be used to level concrete slabs to a depth of 1”. It will require considerable skill to level manually.
QUIKRETE® Deck Mud can be used between flagstones. Alternately, we recommend QUIKRETE® Sand/Topping Mix for this application. With either product, be certain to remove any mixed product from the flagstone faces, as it will be difficult to remove once hardened.
No. Use stucco base for shower curb or vertical of step in shower.
This would fill in the gap of 1/2 inch crack in concrete. I would not use mortar to fill in a crack of concrete because the concrete is flexing at the crack point. This is the reason for the crack. I believe you will be happier finding something with more elasticity.
I would not use this to replace 3.5 inches of concrete. I would suggest purchasing ready mix concrete. There are no rocks in this bag thus the stuff will want to crack when nature flexes the location.
it is not as simple as that. You need to use deck mud (5 parts sand : 1 part portland cement) as a 'Pre slope' then lay a PVC pan liner, then use the deck mud to make actual slope over the liner. check out products like quick pitch and videos by goof proof on YT to see how this is done
