Tiling -out of square walls
I am to re-tile my bath tub walls. They are out of square. Need some tips on bringing them back to square...thanks

back to the studs
You may have to gut the walls back to the studs, do a little hammering and shimming, re-attach a substrate, and re-tile over that.

If the framing is too far out of whack, you could end up with weird reveals at the tub lip or somewhere else.

I always want to get down to the bones to fix things like this, but it can turn a small project into a big one, and that doesn't always make the most sense.

Good luck,
