bathroom tile renovation


New to this forum, but have been an avid reader and poster in the painting room. I would like to tackle a bathroom remodel involving removing square porcelain tile in my shower enclosure and around my tub. I am fairly handy with tools and demo, but I don't know what I'll be getting into with this project. Will I have to remove the old wallboard and re install cement board for the new tile? Or can I skim coat the old wallboard and start from there? I will not be removing the tub. I am confident in new work, but I am at a loss when things don't go right. What can I expect on the down side of this project?

Wherever there is wall tile, plan on taking it down to the studs. You won't be salvaging any wallboard. The shower foor receptor is a major redo also if you don't have a plastic pan already.

Take it all down to the studs.
