tub shower walls - Durock + redgard or Kerdi?


Debating on what to do here...

Durock would cost probably half as much as kerdi after kerdi bands and thinset are added.

Kerdi comes in a 32x48 boards so it'll take 1 sheet to cover the tub but don't I need an extra 3" over the tub to be sure?

OTH, Durock is a 36x60 board one board per side and 2 board the other wall then paint redgard on.

I see that there are other waterproof "paint" is redgard the "best"?

I would do concrete board and redgard I wouldn't think of it as a paint and there other brands that do the same thing.
