Will be tiling walls in a couple of weeks, I have had to remove some of
the old tiles for other work just now and discovered there is another
layer of tiles below, so it was tiled on tiles.
For the best part of this room I wont need to replace plasterboard (so
far) so if I just remove the 1st layer of tiles will this be ok for
tiling the new tiles to?
How tidy must I get the bottom layer surface bearing in mind some parts
have adhesive stuck to them.
Frankly if its possible to rip back to studs, sort any plumbing out and
then reclad in plasterboard or whatever cladding you feel is justified -
waterproof, or plywood etc - I would.
Tiling onto a dead flat surface is infinitely easier.
Global warming is the new Margaret Thatcher. There is no ill in the
world it's not directly responsible for.
As long as the lumps do not prevent the new tiles seating right, you
don't need to do anything, except knock off any obviously loose old
Tile adhesive is pretty good at sticking to most surfaces.
