Tiling around bathrub without cement board?
I would like to add some tiling around my bathtub and I had a few questions to see if i could even do it. The amount of tile work will be very small (about 18 sq. ft total) and only rise up the wall about 2 ft. Enough basically to keep most of the water off of the dry wall.
My question is, can I install this tile directly to the existing drywall? The drywall installed is 1/2" Gypsum Kal-Kote plaster board with two coats of Kal-Kote plaster over it. It has a textured sand float finish on it so it is not smooth.
If I can install directly over the textured wall, what is the process I need to follow to ensure it will last and hold up appropriately?
