Forum Title: Question About Setting A Marble Slab
I'm in the process of doing some work at my own house.. Work was a little slow so I let a couple of my guys tear into my bathroom.. I have a built in bathtub it had framing in the front of it which then had tile installed on it. The framing served no purpose other than hiding the front of the tub. I'm wanting to get a marble slab for the front of the tub, but I'm wondering how I should go about setting it the slab? Hoping someone could offer some advice? My preference would be to do away with the framing as I think it would look better to just use one piece instead of using a vertical piece of marble with a capped marble piece on that. I planned to just put in a small block at the bottom and then using some silicone to stick the slab to the tub and to this block.. I like the thought of this better than putting a slab onto the framing and then using another small piece to sort of cap the top of that.. But I have concerns about it being enough to really hold it good.. Is it doable to put it up without the framing like I want, or should I do it onto the framing? If you think it's better to attach to the framing should I use some durrock and mortar it, silicone it to the studs or?? If you think I an do away with the framing; how should I stick it up there? Any help would be appreciated.. Please excuse the mess.. Thanks
