I've installed a delta hycroft acrylic tub with shower surround, and I'm trying finish the drywall around it. I was planning to use some Trim Tex trim bead around it but where the shower and tub meet there is this notch which is cut out and also raises up the flange to about half an inch. So obviously this bead doesn't sit well when it goes across there. Has anyone dealt with this before or have any suggestions?

I’m not an expert, but I think I would seal up that cut out area really well with a bath caulk and then trim out the flange with PVC lumber. You may have to add in another stud for the drywall to end on.



PVC lumber is easy to cut and shape and water proof.



Others will be along with maybe better suggestions.
