Tile tub surround with window


The cement board is installed short of where I would have placed it. I would have continued it the the corner then lapped it with the corner trim using adhesive. THEN...the difference between the surface of the trim and the surface of the cement board would be filled with thinset. That product you have there is really too thick. You could have asked Hensel's who they sell to (drywall installers) and probably bought a couple of pieces from them.

Your on your own with that plan.

Just wanted to post an update on how everything turned out. For my first tile job I think it turned out pretty good

Now I just need to figure out what I want to do at the top of the tile where the tile and durock meet the drywall...

Huge gap at the tub! Is that gap filled with grout or caulk?

I know that was my big flaw in this job. The gap ranges from 1/4" up to 1/2" in some spots. It has caulking behind it and then grout.

Bummer! Unfortunately you can expect the gap to crack. When it does...the grout should be replaced with caulk. Not an easy task with a gap that big.

You could also consider adding some bull-nose along the tub. This would hide the gap but create two junctures to be caulked. May look better.

Overall the job looks great.
