Help with cement boards for shower remodel.
« on: November 27, 2019, 07:51:15 AM »
Okay I'm down to the studs and I roughed in the plumbing with Pex and the Shower base is installed and hooked to the plumbing with no leaks. My question is:

How do I butt cement boards to a popcorn ceiling. I know the joints need to be taped with the fiberglass mesh tape but what do I do where the popcorn ceiling and the the cement wall boards meet.....?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure I understand, but if I'm not mistaken, you need to remove all the sheet rock above the shower. Again, I don't know your building codes, but you may need to replace it with Green Board first.
If it's green board already, just scrape in off and screw into the studs.
Pics would be good.

I figured it out. I have popcorn ceilings in my bathroom. I'm going trim 2 inches off the edges of the popcorn ceiling, butt the backer board up to the ceiling sheetrock, seal it than put crown molding up to cover up the 2 inches I scraped off the edges of the popcorn ceiling.

I'm I making any sense or did I lose you..... :lol:
