PVA applied to wall before tiling!! HELP


Postby ianb » Sat May 10, 2008 9:48 pm

PVA has been applied to walls which I wish to tile in a 3:1 ratio, Any experienced advice on what/ if anything can be coated over this to enable me to tile the walls securely?
Thank you.

You can't - get as much off as possible preferably all although that will be almost impossible. Warm water, a scrubbing brush and plenty of elbow grease.

What's the substrate?

where are the tiles? if in the kitchen then i'd be inclined to leave it and just tile.

if shower/bath then you definitely want to remove. or you could reskim the wall - apply pva and plaster when tacky. then use a latex primer once the plaster had dried.
