Applying RedGard and tile in shifts
Hi all, I am preparing to apply liquid RedGard crack prevention membrane and after that to install tile in a large basement (~400 sq ft). I will be doing this alone. Never having done this before, what I want to know is…
-Is there a maximum amount of time between applying the RedGard and laying the tile? Can I paint the RedGard on and then wait two, three, or ten days before laying the tile?
-Will I encounter any problem laying the tile in shifts? Let’s say I do 100 sq ft. on Monday, can I wait until Wednesday or Thursday to keep going with the rest of the area?
-Any special precautions I should be sure to take if I’m potentially going to be spacing out the installation this way?
Thanks very much!
