Tiles on walls...


Is igt ok to tile on drywall, or it has to be replaced by cbu first?
It's a half bathroom with no exposition to water
Tiles are standard 9x12 ceramic tiles, to be installed up to 4' high approximatelly on all the perimeter of the room (~16ft)?

It's always best to rough up the surface for best results.

Doesn't have to be that rough, but yes whatever you grab first that is #80 or less.
