I am redoing the En-Suite and SWMBO wants it fully tiled. I do not have a
problem with the actual tiling procedure but the original tiling was floor
to ceiling in the shower area and half way up on the rest. The original
untiled area is emulsion painted with vinyl gloss. My question is can this
be tiled straight on top after giving it a key with a sander? I do not want
to have to take all the paint off first unless there is a risk of the tiles
falling off at a later date. If I need to take the paint off does anybody
have any tips as my steam stripper will not shift it, I tried while removing
all the original adhesive left behind after removing the original tiles!
Also, as the adhesive will be sticking to the paint, your bond is only as
good as the paint's bond to the wall, so if there's any patches of loose
paint etc, it'll probably be best to peel/sand back to well bonded paint.
