I was looking for something wider (6")
Is 2" or 2"3/8 enough to treat corners (outside corners for a window?)
Now there's outside corners?

I can't imagine why anyone would put a window in a shower to begin with.

Because sometimes it's already part of the wall?

Simply because having natural light is nice, and able to bring some fresh air is even better...
So yes, I have outside corners !!!!

What type of product can I use to fill some gaps between a bathtub and cement board, without having to buy a 15 lbs thin-set mortar bag? Tiles will be applied after
I’d like to find something suitable that comes in small package
Thanks

How big of a gap? Pictures?

In general, when you have two dissimilar surfaces, you use a flexible filler because the two different materials will expand and contract differently with heat, moisture, etc. However, there are different rules when dealing with water and tile and other hard substraits.

And seriously - don't you have a contractor that you are paying to do this work? Why is he not taking care of this stuff??
