dot n dabbing to tiled walls


Postby sweetorb » Sat Apr 07, 2012 11:48 am

hi

am fitting a kitchen next week where every square inch of wall is tiled. decided rather than removing the tiles and potentially re-plastering the whole room to overboard the tiles with battens and tapered edge plasterboard then tape and joint the whole room. some sections (bulkheads / window reveals etc..) are tight and if i were to batten and board the finished surface would be above the window frames. is it feasable to dot and dab straight onto tiled surfaces? if so do i need to do anything to the tiles beforehand such as uni-bonding etc...? also, is tapered edge plasterboard (one taped and jointed) ready for decoration (wallpapering / painting) or do i need to give it a coat of emulsion or some sort of primer?

cheers!!

you have to score the tiles to remove the enamel,otherwise the drywall adhesive wont grip,Use a small grinder,but wear a mask and goggles.
