Does this tub also have a shower?
Yes, it does. Here's a shot of the bathroom before we tore it down...Does this tub also have a shower?
I chose GP's DensArmor Plus Moisture and Mold Resistant wallboard. It has a glass facing instead of paper so it's much less prone to mold taking hold in the future...what are you planning to go back with in that area?
What sort of treatment can I do on the wallboard before I paint it? Are their spray coatings or something like that I can use?normally you would bring it to about 1/8 to 1/4 above the tub lip then use water tight calk around the edge but in your case if I could get it behind the lip and then calk I would do that.I think that would look better and keep the water out.I would also treat the wall board before you paint it.I mean it is just wall board with a fiberglass coat all the protection it can get will help to last the 2-5 till you get to the tile.........Ok I looked at the pic again and that lip is pretty high to go behind so go about an eight from the lip and calk it good
I absolutely plan on doing this before I close it back up.by the way if you had mold before you need to srub all the wood and the area around with bleach and let it dry before you put up anything
No, I'm re-doing the wallboard that was damaged by moisture and mold around an existing tub / shower surround. I'm hoping to not have to pull the shower out but I'm guessing now that I'm going to need to do this to get all the moldy wood treated before I close it all up...So you are doing wallboard & then a tub/shower surround?
