On December 07, 2001 at 22:01:26, someone named Steve (Moderator Steve?) posted a very nicely done instruction on how to install a rubber shower pan liner. He encouraged going as high up the stud walls of the shower surround as possible with an unbroken span (folded, not cut) of the membrane. To attach the membrane, we are to use rubber mounted nails to studs.
My question: If the rubber membrane provides and unbroken surface from the base and up the wall 3 or 4 feet, how or what should I use to attach the Durock to the stud wall where it covers the rubber liner?
Surely Durock screws are going to put holes in the rubber membrane as they go into the studs -- which can't possibly be good -- but it's unthinkable to leave 3 to 4 feet of the Durock hanging loose at the bottom of the shower wall.
