Tiling a Bathtub/Shower Surround
I've been reading through this forum and found a lot of good info which helped me with my first tile job...tiling my entryway...which was a success!
Now I'm going to be tiling the bathtub surround/shower area. It is a standard shower/tub with a shower curtain. I've hired someone to gut the room, redo some plumbing, electrical, and drywall and then I will be coming in and doing the rest. He is going to hang cement board in the shower area for me. My questions are these...
~After he hangs the cement board I seal it with red guard and then put the tile up correct?
~When setting the tile do I use normal thinset? I've heard about something called mastic, is this better?
