I plan to use concrete backer board in the area that will be tiled.
My question is how do I transition from the backer board to the drywall when tiling. I dont plan to tile to the ceiling or do a I plan to tiles the walls outside the shower area.
Do I... Do I tape and mud the seam where the backer board hits the tile with tile mastic and then tile slighly over the line with the tiles. In this example if the backer board goes 6 feet high I would tile up to say 6 foot 2 or so.
or do I tape and mud the seam with spackel Coating the top inch or so with spackel and then tiling up to the 5 foot 10 mark...
I dont know that spackel attaches to backer board so I think the first choice is right but just wanted to be sure. At first I quickly thought that you might not want to tile over the drywall backerboard seam but after thinking about it further I thought that the backbaord/drywall seam is not really much differnt then tiling over a backerboard/backerboard seam
Is that right?
