I will be expanding my bathroom and moving the bathtub, meaning I need to prepare a new bathtub alcove.
I know how to frame and plumb - but preparing for tile is new to me.
I know that there are different products out there to use to prepare for tile, such as concrete backer-board which would apply direct to the studs and get sealed with thinset, vs. waterproof membranes which would be applied directly to greenboard without the backerboard.
What I don't know is - what are the advantages/disadvantages to each approach? Is one better than the other?
The plan is to use ceramic and glass tiles - does that make a difference?
