I have stripped back half the en-suite to the partition wall as the shower tiles plaster board had blown and water had ingressed all around the shower unit. I want to completely re vamp with new shower enclosure etc and tile all walls. Currently half the en-suite is still painted plaster. My question is what is the best way to achieve a flat surface all round so that I can tile? Thanks

rip the plasterboard off and use Hardiebacker board or similar. Might need some adjustment on the shower valve.

Seal any exposed bits (tray etc.) with a good quality silicon (Dow corning as one example)


EDIT... :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :welcomeuhm:

Thanks for that - did you mean strip all walls down or just the shower area

Just the bits that are going to get wet (inside the shower)
