Backsplash
 
Is it necessary to remove countertop back before putting in backsplash? Ours is about 4 inches high and we are not sure whether to tile above it or remove it.

Are you planning to replace your countertops any time soon? If not, just tile above the countertop backsplash.

Either way. It's your choice.:)

Bud, would you suggest that - if they go above the countertop backsplash - they use matching grout/caulk between the countertop and first row of tiles, to accommodate any vibration or shifting?

Okay...now I smell a rat.

But to answer the question: Yup!:)

No rat. Just hoping that I've been doing it right. :)
