Durock near corners and greenboard


How close must the CBU be to the corners, adjoining CBU and greenboard? Does CBU expand?

Also, which tape and compound do I use to join CBU to CBU? and the CBU to greenboard?

Keep your joints tight--no expansion problems.

Use tilers mesh and thinset in the corners and seams----keep the coat as thin as possible so you di not have a hump--

drywall to cement board is not a wet area and drywall compound could be used.

Are you waterproofing the backer board? If not, the taping and filling can be done as you tile---this avoids the concern about a high tape joint.

Thanks.

Does it matter how the durock sheets are positioned on the wall? I've noticed two of the four ends of the durock sheets are smoother and a tad rounder (also a hair thinner than 1/2"). Since these smoother corners are less than a 1/2 inch, it creates a slight problem when joining them next to textured drywall. Will the thinset and tilers mesh even this out?

Also, my wall measurements are as follows:

Valve wall and parallel wall are 32 inches wide by 72 inches in height. The third perpendicular wall meaures 60 inches wide by 72 inces in height.

How many durock sheets would you use and how would you position them?

If its a tub shower then the plumbing wall get 1 vertical and one vertical for the back or end of the tub. Then 2 horizontal in the middle one on top and one on bottom.
