You don't have to. Make sure whatever you do you put good paint on there or you will have moister stains and potential damage.

Hello, I've just installed a tub surround. To tell the truth I didn't give it much thought. Bathroom, damp surface due to steam or splashing why not use green board. only a couple bucks more same amount of labor. You may also want to consider not putting texture on the walls. Makes them easier to clean and keeps mildew down. Good Luck Woodbutcher
