I have installed a new bath tub and I am planning to put a cabinet behind the bath tub as I have about 24 inches to the back wall.

Anyway, I have the cabinet. I used Durock for the walls around the bath tub as that will all be tiled, the corner by the bath tub will have tile on one side and sheet rock on the other side of the corner.

I used the proper screws for the durock, now for the corner. I was going to use one of the galvanized corners and nail it through the sheetrock to the stud on the one side and use the screws on the side with the Durock. Now, if I had to use special screws for the Durock I am wondering if that galvanized corner will become a problem against the Durock?

I plan to bring the tile out to the corner and use a piece of trim against the edge of the tile that will bit between the tile and the galvanized corner.

Do not use screws to hold metal corner bead---use drywall nails---I use small crown staples---

The screws are to big and will dimple the tin----

A picture would help---there are many aluminum tile edges available--
Schluter makes a nice line of the trims--Home Depot carries a few styles.

I know you are right about the screws, found that out a while back. I am going to use one of the aluminum tile edges from Home Depot. Good idea with the staples, I will use them on the Durock also.
