What product to use to fill in gap between drywall and shower surround
I've read to use durabond but also read that it is no longer being made. I haven't seen this for sale at the local lowes or home depot. I would prefer to use a product like this rather than filling in a 1/4 gap with caulk. I have 2 showers that I need to do this do.
1/4 inch gap, sounds like you can use a trim. Use a good caulk beneath it - probably a couple coats, then using locktite or a similar quick and very strong, water resistant adhesive, apply your trim. There are synthetic trims which are easily modified to fit. -
Of course if this is your place, you might want to use backer rod with joint compound to fill this gap - let it dry well, and use fiberglass mesh tape and skim coat - bringing the wall all the way to the shower as it should be. It's up to you.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you ever have time to do it over?
