I got such great answers to my tile spacing question, I thought I’d ask another:
What’s the conventional wisdom on tiling a shower against a sheetrock backer? I’ve durocked most of the shower/tub enclosure I plan to tile, but on one side, the tile will end right in the middle of a stud bay. As a result, I sheetrocked into the shower area, rather than durock’ing into the exposed wall area, but I wonder if tile mortar will stick well to primed and painted sheetrock.
Should I cut out some of the sheetrock and patch in a piece of durock to get as close to the edge of the tile as possible, or is it not worth worrying about?
Thx for the feedback, all!
