Tile over cultured marble bath surround
We currently have vinyl flooring and a bathtub with a cultured marble surround. We had a tile guy come for an estimate on putting in floor tile and replacing the marble surround with tile. He said it would be easiest to remove the backsplash section but put the tile right on top of the cultured marble deck and butt it up to the tub. That way he wouldn't have to take out the existing surround.
He said the marble was a solid base for the tile but I was worried that the tile wouldn't go under the lip of the tub like it currently does. Will that be a problem if we ever replace the tub or is there any other reason why we wouldn't want to do that?
