Hi everyone i am about to dry line over an old pre tiled wall that has a fair bit of the old tile adhesive in ridges which i am told will help with adhesion.
I am told that i will need 2 - 3 coats of pva then use dry wall adhesive in dabs on the back of the boards, i am also told that if i use a cove adhesive this will help the boards stick quicker.
After the boards have taken i am going to 2 coat skim over the boards.
Can someone please let me know if all the above sounds correct?
Thats more or less spot on, you'll find some do it a little different. I'd personally put one coat PVA on wall and a little bit in with wall adhesive. Wouldn't bother with coving adheshive.
But that's me!
Good Luck, you've being talking to the right people.
