Tiles on the top of tub


The first row of tiles around the top of my tub have become lose, 3 of them have totally come off. I did notice the board in back of them is worn from water damage.

What would be the correct process to fix this?
I was just going to recork them.

sounds like water damage and you may want to look into replacing when you can, if not now you most likely will have to later. this sounds like the tip of the iceberg

Yow, it's all over for that tub surround. More than likely the tile was installed over drywall and drywall won't last forever. Sounds like all the bottom row or two or three rows should be removed and new wallboard installed in that area. Use cement board this time.

Thanks for the reply's, It's been on there for yrs and I'm thinking regular drywall was used?!

I'll take out the 2 rows and see what it looks like & take it from there.
