The most recommended waterproofing fiberglass tape for shower!!!
Up for sail Fiberglass mesh tape.
The roll is 6” wide and 50‘ linear feet long.
Highly recommended when it comes to waterproofing any wet area in your house.
On my projects I am using this tape with waterproofing membrane for reinforcing:
- Built-in shelves
- shower curbs
- shower seats
- Shower bench
- Tile-backer joints
This tape meets IAPMO and ANSI A118.10 standards when used with waterproofing membrane.
6” size is perfect to cover top of any knee-wall or shower curb.
Some contractors will use only waterproofing membrane to waterproof risky areas.
Without any reinforcement (mesh tape) it is worth nothing.
Mesh tape when combine with membrane gives us 100% waterproofed shower corner or curb – and this is where leaks always starts when not waterproofed correctly!!
This type of waterproofing will never fail if done right.
Because it’s flexibility we can waterproof any wall or curb shape.
When house is settling down grout starts to crack, and all water that gets to such areas will penetrate all this cracks causing mold, rotten walls and sub-floors, leaks.
Using fiberglass tape we will avoid such situation. Tape is flexible and any cracks in grout will not transfer to tape(if used with membrane) – keeping all water inside shower.
On my YOUTUBE video I am showing how to use and install this fiberglass tape.
