I googled durock and after reading and learning am now worried because the contractor just affixed durock to the studs. This is what I read:"With no poly attached to the studs or Kerdi or Hydroban applied to the Durock surface, there is nothing to prevent the studs from rotting away eventually" I assume I am going to need to have the durock removed and apply something to the studs? What is the best product to apply?
Secondly, I have a shower curtain in front of the durock. Reputable tile contractors are busy for a few months out. Do I need to be concerned that water can seep through the board after a certain period of time? Also, is it not advisable to have a carpenter versus a tile contractor install the tiles? I read an article stating that tiles look better than a tub surround "if it is done right".
Thank you-I woke up early worried about possible damage without taking the right steps.
