Subway tile backsplash


So my wife and I decided to remodel our kitchen. New countertops means new backsplash. I was able to get the old tile off with a little damage to drywall and with some old thin set left on. I am planning on putting a 1/4” Hardie board up and tiling right to it. My problem is, I have a window that the tile will come up about 6 inches on. With the Hardie board, how do I cover the 1/4” that will show the Hardie around the window sill? We plan on doing a 3x6 subway tile.

Re: Subway tile backsplash


Why not skim coat the sheetrock (unless it is damaged to badly) and tile directly on that? It is not a "wet" area and would be fine and you won't need to deal with the CBU edge.

I really never thought of that. There’s not to much damage. I wish I could post a picture here, is there a way?

Yes, now that you have more than one post you can. Click on Go Advanced at the bottom of your post, then go to Manage Attachments. Pretty self explanatory after that.

Click Go Advanced, then on the advanced screen click Manage Attachments. In the window that pops up (if it doesn't, you may have a popup blocker enabled) click Choose File, locate your pic file, then click Upload. If you have more than one pic, do Choose File and Upload again. When you're done uploading pics, click Close this window. Write your post text and publish.
