I was wondering how many different types of Bath wainscot you guys commonly come accross. I am starting to do some older homes and would like to know common ones other than the Fiberglass of today. Weird question i know. If not for my supervisor, I would not have known what some bath wainscots were. Older, but not ceramic tile, and not fiberglass...WHAT IS IT! :)

Thanks everyone :)

For a start, I've seen:

Glass tile
Marble
Slate
Granite ($$ and not good choice)
Masonite
Painted wood
Composite (Corian type)
Plastic
Painted glass sheets
Stainless Steel
Aluminum panels.

And one or two oddities that I never DID figure out what they were so called 'other' :redface: .

I have never seen hardi or just plain drywall. And isn't a claw foot tub tile (if its not metal) ?

Patti:

In Ryan's defense: I have seen painted drywall over/near the original wood surround.

does that count?

(I personally do not consider this appropriate so didn't list it myself...)

it just makes a bad situation worse.

Wood bead-board is common in older homes, in my area. Really old homes have just wood walls and wood floors; plaster is only for the formal areas where the guest are entertained.
