How do I blend Durock and sheetrock?
As I posted before, I had to take out tile and water damaged sheetrock from around the tub/shower in my bathroom. The previous owner didn't caulk around the fixtures when they tiled! I took it out and replaced with greenboard. Sounds like I made a mistake, everyone here feels I should take it out and replace with a cement type backerboard. When I took out the damaged sheetrock, I cut out 2-3" above the existing tile, then on the tub ends, I had to cut out over to a stud. Of course I won't be tiling up that far or all the way over to the studs. Anyway, what do I use to connect the two different materials together, and then what do I use as a topcoat on the Durock to smooth the surface for painting? Thanks. Greg
