Re-tiling tub surrond

Hi, I have removed the 4 inch tile around the tub. Most of the sheet rock top paper came off as well. Before I put up the new tile do I need to coat/seal this surface with something. And what adhesive would you recommend. Thanks

Re-tiling tub surrond

You should remove the wall board and replace it with a concrete backer board, then install your new tiles using a thin set mortar which comes in a bag.

More to it than that obviously, but that's the skinny.

Re-tiling tub surrond

Is this just a tub, or is it a tub/shower combo?
