Redgard for tiled shower? Waterproof...
How do I waterproof a walk-in shower? I am attempting to waterprrof a walk-in shower that will be tiled on all three walls. The size of the shower will be a standard 60 x 34. Is Redgard a good waterproof sealer for the floor and walls and then tile over it. Is this possible?
I do not want to use a pan liner, just a liquid waterproofer. The reason is that the home is located in Baja Mexico and liners are practiced yet.
The subfloor is cement and the shower is located on the second floor. I just installed the 1/2 durolock cement boards for HD on the walls. What is next?

I have never done any shower pans before with Custom's RedGuard. I prefer working with Ardex 8+9, Kerdi DS or Noble Seal TS.

Here is a good example of a Red Guard installation on Flickr. You can see the Wonder Board (Cement Board) has been installed correctly and the seams taped with most likely a mesh and thin-set. It also appears that the bottom of the wonderboard has been Kerdi-Fixed or Siliconed.

Is it? All this time and no new information. Glad I could help out.

If your Walk In Shower is barrier free you might consider working with products like Kerdi, Noble and Ardex. All allow for easy temporary dam construction.
