backer board over tile?


I am redoing my tub surround. Can I screw a backerboard to the old tile, and the tile over that?

bad plan---best to remove the old walls----this can be done in less than an hour

That has the added benefit of letting you add some new 2x4s to flatten the wall if needed and easy access to change the mixer valve.

No. I would do it per the backerboard manufacturer's instructions, and do it correctly.

This is a joke, right?
