How to Waterproof a Shower with Ardex 8+9 — by Home Repair Tutor
Would you love a new bathroom?

Learning how to waterproof a shower is critical.

Especially if you’re installing cement board as your surround.

Cement board by itself is NOT waterproof, it will absorb moisture like a sponge.

Sure it’s way better than drywall in a shower surround.

But you need to apply a liquid or sheet membrane over the cement to keep it dry.

Today’s tutorial shows you how to apply Ardex 8+9 liquid and crack isolation membrane. This is a great DIY project and you’ll see how a professional does it.

My buddy Steve White who’s a bathroom remodeler shows you all the steps…I mean ALL OF THE STEPS.

We also address the space between the cement board and the top of the tub.

You should mount the cement board so that it rests on top of the tub lip. Then fill in the gap using Ardex 8+9.
