Plaster came away when tiles removed

Posted by Susan Welsh, on
The plaster came away from the bathroom walls round the bath when we removed the tiles. Is it possible to put up plaster board in a bathroom, and then tile over it?

Hi susan It is possible to put plasterboard then tile over but you need to apply primer for plasterboard before tiling then let it dry for 24 hrs Best regards Rafal
