Bathroom tub surround or tile?
I am finishing a bathroom in the basement and right now I have the tub installed and the wall is insulated(tub is on exterior wall) but none of the bathrooms walls are finished. I am looking for the cheapest option that I should go with. I imagine it's cheaper to go with a tub surround? Can I cut the plastic panels of the tub surround because I don't have much height, the house was built in 1959 and the ceiling is pretty low. If I go with a tub surround, I just finish the bathroom with mold resistant drywall and apply the tub surround over it with adhesive? If I decide to do tile, I need cement backer board, tile adhesive,tiles, tile spacers, caulking, grout and that's pretty much it?I would need to use 3 sheets of cement backer board on all 3 sides I imagine. So I guess a tub surround would be my cheapest option?
