Removed texture from drywall


I am preparing to seam drywall to durock. I removed the texture from the drywall, and am now left with a very thin layer of paper on the drywall. Will drywall compound stick to this thin layer? Or will the thin layer eventually fall off after seaming the durock to drywall seam?

Should be fine, just make sure to make that transition wide enough.
It's not uncommon to make it 12" wide.
Primmer and 2 layers of paint and your good to go.

Removed texture from drywall


Joe: Do you mean I should remove approximately 12 inches of texture from the drywall, and then use joint compound to seam the drywall to durock? Or will just removing about an inch of texture suffice as seen in the below picture? Also, what about the texture? Do I texture after the tiling is complete?

What I would do is first throw that mesh tape away. Then using paper tape I would fill and embed the tape using hot mud (powdered drywall compound 45 minute) then sand off texture at least a foot back if not farther. Then at least 2 coats of regular drywall mud feathering out each coat farther than the last. What you have is a knockdown texture it can be redone with a rattle can from the box store pretty easy. Get the can with the adjustable nozzle, practice on a piece of cardboard till you get the size of the splatter about right.

Thanks, but there has to be a less destructive way to approach this situation. I don't want to remove more of the drywall if it isn't needed.

Sorry but that's one of the fun things about any texture. Often times when a repair is done the whole area has to also be redone to get it to match.
Textured walls or ceiling in a bathroom or kitchen is never a great idea.

Is the strength of the bond (between the durock to drywall seam) weakend if the transition isn't wide enough?
