I AM IN THE PROCESS OF CERAMIC TILING THE SHOWER AREA IN THE BATHROOM. TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST BACKING AROUND THE TUB AREA. WATERPROOF DRYWALL OR CEMENT BOARD. ANY INFO WOULD BE GREAT.
Cement board is the only way to go. Waterproof drywall is a joke! I have done many repair jobs where the contractors used “waterproof” drywall and it just doesn’t hold up. Water resistant is a better name for it. Cement board is truly waterproof and will not deteriorate when it gets wet. In a shower stall installation I would never use any type of drywall.
