Mistake??? Drywall surrounding bathroom sink
I hope someone can heIp me. I am adding two bathrooms for my sons as part of an addition to our home. The tile work is almost completed and am vey happy with the quality of the install. I went in to check progress yesterday and noticed something strange.
Snce the wall tile is not quite completed, I noticed that in one bath, the walls behind the tile in the sink/vanity alcove are regular sheetrock, but in the second bathroom the walls behind the tile in the same area are durock. The vanities sit surrounded on 3 sides with 3x6 porcelain subway tile up to 52" high.
The vanities will be freestanding with granite countertops so only the back part of the granite top will touch up against the tile but it is a wet area after all. My question - is it ok to leave the sheetrock in the wall behind the bathroom sink, specifically where the countertop meets the wall? Its obviously a mistake but how big?
Meeting with contractor about this today at 4:30 pm. Any suggestions on how to handle it?
Do I need to rip out the tile and sheetrock and put durock?
All three sides or just the back wall?
Ugh.... Thank you all in advance.
