I think I can manage replacing my worn kitchen countertops - the countertops
should come off of the underlying cabinets, remove some screws maybe - but
I'm wondering if there are any tricks to getting the backsplash removed from
the wall without tearing away the underlying wallboard - I'm assuming that
the backsplash is liquid-nailed to the wallboard - any suggestions? Thanks!
Sometimes the drywall paper peels off with the b/s if it's glued. Fact
of life. Can't be helped. Depending upon what you're going back with
for a splash will determine if you need to replace the drywall.
Thanks - I'll probably replace the existing backsplash with something very
similar - same size, same laminate material - assuming that the drywall
paper peels off when I remove the old backsplash, what type of prep do I
have to do before putting up the new laminate backsplash? If the wallboard
comes off in chunks with the old laminate backsplash, then do I need to
piece in replacement wallboard before putting up the new backsplash? Thanks
