I’m remodeling our bathroom (I’m a first timer) and I am using green board on the walls. What I don’t know about is what to use behind or above the shower surround. We also have a 7ft plaster ceiling that I would like to replace because the paint is peeling. It seems to get worse as time goes on so I’m hesitant to prime and paint it as is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Great questions! I would recommend using Green Board for the ceiling but not for behind a tile surround. Behind the tile, I would recommend Hardibacker or a traditional concrete float. As far as the ceiling area where you’re experiencing a lot of moisture and paint peeling, my recommendation would be to tile that location.
Hope that helps answer your questions. Best of luck!
