Gluing Porcelain Base


Doing a remodel in a bathroom, gluing porcelain base to wall with PL Premium caulk. In some areas the sheetrock has been patched, does the new mudded area need to be primed before gluing tile to?

PL Premium is an adhesive...not a caulk.

Probably not but it may be better. You could apply some PL and scald it with a putty knife. After that dries, then glue up the tiles.

You're using what? Replacing 1-2 piece are ya? It may work anyway. I suggest applying a skim coat on the bare spots first.

Yes Bud, I know PL Premium is not caulk, I realized my mistake right after I hit the submit button. I was going to place the thin set on the back of the tile, but after doing a little reaserch and youtubing, someone mentioned using this adhesive instead. Its faster and it can be used on tile, I don't see a downside.

There probably isn't a downside unless your tiles are wet from sawing.
