Wall to shower/tub ideas?


better late than never..Creating a flush surface around shower/tub units. Sheetrock is cut back leaving entire flange exposed to where in the past the flange would be covered creating high spots.
The void is then packed with quick setting joint compound, left to dry flat and then taped.

Why didnt you just shim around the flange and run the drywall up to the tub.So you ran the drywall to the flange and filling it with compound.Sorry but if thats what you did,thats screwed up.

didnt click the link and read the comments did you?
we've been finishing Every house this way for the past 5 years. It's common place here. Why would a builder shim out three walls in a bathroom when he can have the drywall contractor fix the problem in lock step with finishing the rest of the house.
I bed all the corner beads with quick-set. When bedding the beads we always pack the void around the tub units as well. everything turns out flat and sound. no cracking with very little caulking needed.
screwed up is taking hours of labor for fir out walls when it only takes a few minutes for the finisher to fix. wasteful IMO

It takes us about 10 min to fur around showers.Best thing to use is pieces of roof shingles nail 2 next to the flange and 1 about 4" to 6" above the double one.Run the drywall to the tub and flat tape next to the tub.I guess if it works for you i just never seen it done like that.
