I would like to tile around the shower in my bath room,
The walls are painted. Can I tile on top of a painted surface or would I have to put new wall board on?
Any comments would be appreciated.
I would suggest you put in the proper wall board for tile. The sheetrock you have behind the paint probably can't bear the weight of the tile and the paint could affect adhesion.
Thanks for the reply!
