    hi everyone..

    So doing this wetroom.. have boarded the walls with 6mm jackoboard. Have boarded around the door frame and left the timber frame exposed.

    So the board sits proud of the frame, as will the tiles.

    BDC1E5ED-0836-47CC-BCFD-FD172E266749.jpeg

    Is it best to tile to the far edge of the door frame or up to where the frame begins?

    Also, are there edge trims that will hide both the edge of the tile and the cement board?

    Cheers in advance
    Jay

    Is there not architrave going on? If so just add the correct thickness of wood to the frame before fitting the architrave.

    I’ve no idea to be honest. So should I tile up to where the frame begins then so the chippie can finish off? (Assuming he’s fitting architrave)

    I would check if architrave is being fitted and if so it's size

    I would find out both. The more information the better so you can get your bit right from the start :grinning: it's those finishing bits around doors etc that make or break the finish of a job

    Find out your architrave width and add 5mm.

    6mm backer boards are a bit thin! Did you stick it and mechanical fixing and what was the background - studs or plasterboard?

    Studs and skimmed plasterboard, screwed into studs.

    I’m going by what they’ve used on the adjacent door which is 45mm wide architraves, plus the 5mm from the edge of the frame so I’ll leave a 50mm gap around the frame. I asked the owner of the house and she didn’t have a clue so I told her what I was doing and she said that’s fine.

    I would’ve trowelled the wall up, and used more screws/washers. Washers need tanking too if in a shower:thumbsup:

    Yeah I’ve tanked those and filled them with the ardex paste prior to painting it. I thought of trowelling the boards but thought the mechanical fixings would be ok.. now you’ve said that I don’t feel so confident ‍♂️

    What was the studwork spacing?

    I think the recommended spacing is 300mm for 12mm boards of this type.

    Could be wrong though.
