Question:

How do I plaster board?

I have just removed the tiles from my bathroom wall and it needs plasterboarding before re-tiling. I am ordering the plasterboard online but what do I do with it?! Does it stick on the wall or do you have to screw it? Don't even know what it looks like so am complete beginner!

Answer:

plasterboard uaually comes in an 8 ft. x 4 ft.x 1/2 inch. sheet which you cut with a saw or a utility knife to suit the space area . screw only into 2x4 studs do not screw into lath strips. if you have lath strips on your wall, then you really don't need concrete board plaster board ( DRYWALL ) and concrete board ( DUROCK ) are usually used on walls when installing tiles either in the kitchen or on the bathroom if you are installing 4 inch tiles drywall will be good enough but you will need to use ACRYL-PRO adhesive since it is an acrylic poly blend sandless grout which will not allow water to penetrate through the tile seems. Now is the time to go to your local Home Center Store and buy a How to book , this will be the best explanation for HOW TO TILE Good Luck

It needs to be attached to the walls with screws or nails. You should be using concrete board for tiling over a wall.
