Ceramic tile installed on a wall.


I am intending to install ceramic tile on a bathroom wall, from the floor up to a height of about 3 feet. Currently, there is sheetrock on the wall. Do I have to remove that and install cement board or something? Will sheetrock not support the weight of the tiles? thx.

There's more to consider than the weight -- moisture for example. More information would help you get the correct answers.

you can install the tile on sheetrock except in the shower stall area which will need CBU and waterproofing

It is in a bathroom with no shower, so low moisture. Just didn't know if the paper might peel off of the sheetrock. Thx

It will not peel off. You will be fine. A better job would be to use the CBU but this is not required.
