Tub or Walls First


If I'm remodeling a shower, what do I want to complete first, installing new tub, or cement board? And why?

The tub. Tub should have an integral flange for the cement board to install over. Kind of like a drip cap. Keep the cement board about an 1/8" above the tub.

Also, you'll have to fur out your walls with wood lath so that the cement board can lap in front of the flange.
