Thanks guys...

Yeah, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. He did wind up charging a little more but it justified I think. I could nitpick about a few things but I am not gonna. After touch ups, I think it will be very nice.

Thank you everyone. I think this is goodbye for me.

Advice on what to do with this gap.

Hi,

post tile, hubby put up drywall and ... Gaps on both sides of tub between tile and wall. Yikes. What to do? Who to call? Everything from Quarter round to caulk to metal trim to leave alone has been suggested.

Thanks everyone. Nothin’ but love.

This the same project you paid to have done a year and a half ago, Crissy? Looks familiar.

Well, let's get the threads combined so folks can see what's been previously asked and answered.

Is that just a raw (or maybe painted?) drywall edge we're seeing there?

I would have wanted both the wall waterproofing and tile to have covered those areas, Chrissy, but it's a bit late for that now. I can't think of a way to make it right at this point, but perhaps someone else will and this will at least bump the thread to the top for some attention.

All I can see you doing is maybe caulking the gaps between tub and wallboard.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Simple fix in my opinion. If they gaps are large, fill with backer rod foam tucked into it and then fill gap with paintable caulk. Let dry, then apply a Surface supplied liquid waterproofing over the area, enough coats to make certain it’s waterproof, then paint with your wall paint. Waterproofing will last probably much longer than the paint but at least you will be certain of your waterproof joint.
