Tiling -out of square walls

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,
