What is the best way to drywall over the flange of the shower surround? I've tried to just drywall over it, but the edge of the drywall keeps breaking because of the thickness of the flange (1/8 inch). This problem is really holding up the completion of my bathroom remodel. Thanks for any help!
Rip down "lathe" type "strip-shims" that are the same thickness as the shower flange thickness. It should be anywhere from 1/4" to 1/8".
Attach these onto any of the exposed rough framing areas that the nailing flange is not sitting on. Thus, "equalizing" the surface area thickness - of what you will be nailing or screwing your sheetrock onto.
