    Hi All,

    Hope this is the right area for this post.

    Basically I’ve just ripped out my old bathroom suite and it was tiled floor to ceiling. I've removed all of the tiles, but whoever put them in just dotted and dabbed the adhesive which is about 1cm thick in some places. I've knocked off most of it, which has also taken the plaster off the wall. What’s the best way to make the room square again? Can I just PVA and bond over the walls to cover any adhesive or can I just use moister proof board and board the entire room?

    Either I guess. I'd Pva and use multi finish as cheapest option. Some stick plasterboard over by dot and dabbing. How good is your skimming? Guess it's don't need to be perfect

    First time doing any bonding or boarding. Cant find a plasterer this side of Christmas and desperate to get the bathroom sorted.

    I'm with wayners. Watch some youtube, buy a cheap trowel and hawk, bag of multifinish and have a go. In a small room, it's not so difficult to make a decent job of a wall.
