I have a quick question. I just replaced paneling/plaster/drywall mess that was my bathroom walls with drywall. The tub surround (a Bathfitter) was only a few years old and in very good shape, so I left it and replaced the walls only up to the tub surround. I'm wondering what the best way to blend the two surfaces together would be. The drywall and tub surround aren't perfectly plumb, and the gaps between the two aren't uniform otherwise I would simply use caulk. I'm thinking some kind of small trim pieces, but I'm not sure if there is some usual or recommended way to do this. Thanks for any help.
we would have shimmed the drywall to have it meet behind the surround in the first place. There is no reason to have the two meet at different planes. Possibly you can make some custom trim to cover it with azek or similar pvc materials.
Yes, that would have been ideal, but there were multiple materials butted right up behind the tub surround (2x4's, drywall, plaster, nothing) and I don't think I would have been able to do that especially given the slight waviness in the wall from top to bottom... not to mention my amateurish skills, lol. Plus, the distance between the tub and the corner of the next wall was exactly 4', so honestly didn't even think about it. Thanks for the tip and the reply.
