In response to Re: Replacing wall around tub

: I removed the wall around the tub as part of a remodel. The old wall was plaster. I am putting up cement board. The tub has a radiused lip that goes against the wall. (The tub is about 1/4" away from the wall already). The old plaster wall came down over the lip. The new board would have to come out enough to clear the lip (about 1/4") as well as get past the gap between the tub and the wall (another 1/4"). Obviously, this was easier to fudge when the plaster was put up. How can I account for this now?

Some people put the backer board to the tile flange. Others shim the wall so the backer board will go over the tile flange. Either way, you will not want the backer board to be touching the top of the tub, allowing water to "wick" up the board. Terry
