WOW! That's really a tough read.

I think you must be asking about a "bullnose" tile used to terminate wall tile. Does that sound correct?

dang, that is rough.ill try again

the three walls around the tub now have hardybacker. corners and seams are taped.
but like when you mud a drywall corner, you use that corner bead. to make it strong. would something like that be used. one side would be under the bull nose. and the other side will float into the wall?

second?
do i redguard everything. even the taped seams?
thanks

OK, now I'm catching up I think.

The (outside) corner you are pointing to would not require anything additional be done IF you are going to wrap that corner with tile. Bullnose would be required on only one face, wouldn't matter which one.

If the tile (bullnose) is to terminate at that location and not go around the corner then, YES, a outside corner bead would be used at that location and then be filled with joint compound ONLY on the side nearest the door. Thinset mortar would be used on the shower side of that corner bead.

Are we getting closer?

Just a metal corner bead. Make sure the corner of it sits proud of the drywall so the mud fills the gap.

You can use plastic. I always use a spray adhesive when I use plastic but make sure you don't get any on the finished .ceiling or floor. 3M makes a good one. After that just apply joint compound on it.

That is your best bet - DON'T use a metal corner bead.

You DO NOT put any mortar under the bead. The bead is to be glued and maybe stapled to the dry wall board be it cement board or drywall. THEN you apply thinset mortar to the side to be tiled and drywall compound to the side to be painted.

You still haven't answered the question about the tile going around the corner. Does the tile go to the door frame OR NOT? You may not even need the corner bead as stated earlier in the thread.

Re-read the entire thread, you are getting lost in all the information maybe.

Bud, I've never had problems using metal corners in that situation. Thats what they used until plastic corners came on the market. Have you had bad experience with them?

I have torn out many many many rusty outside corners in my time. Now that plastic is available it's a step up. Even if moisture didn't get to the metal, the alkali in thinset would over time. Those corners have never been alkali resistant. I have removed tile where there was at one time a metal corner underneath and the metal was totally gone in some places, it just vanished.

Metal used under gypsum was never an issue but used under cement products is a different story I suppose.
