Hi all

I've just removed all the tiles in my bathroom and am trying to decide what needs to happen next. Please see pics below.

I'm thinking of removing all the adhesive, filling the larger sections of damage, and then repainting. It's an old character house so a smooth finish would not be necessary. In fact I quite like the look of a non-perfect pitted wall. What I'm not sure is:

1. With the adhesive off, and the wall prep'd and cleaned, would it be ok to go ahead and paint or would it need further pre-treatment?
2. Anything else I need to consider?

If we decided to have the walls replastered...

3. Would all the adhesive need to be removed first?
4. Would larger "holes" (where the plaster has come off) need repairing before replastering?
5. Would they be able to replaster the more awkward sections around pipes etc?
6. What would be the rough cost including the ceiling?

Many thanks

Max

I would fill the deepest holes and retile over the rest. The walls look pretty straight

You can make this your signature in *user control panel* then *signature* If you have problems doing that I can do it for you.

@OP sorry for the off-topic post.

Thought I had, did it via tapatalk though so perhaps that's the issue.

Thanks for the replies, and the philosophy :)

We don't want tiles, apart from maybe a row or two above the sink and bath.

Cheers

Most signatures are structured/formatted in such a way that they don't look like they are part of the post! As in inverted commas, colour or bold font. (Sorry to continue off-topic but Mod2 started it).

IF (big if) you are refurbing that room and it is your own property then I would suggest removing the Avocado suite and replacing with white.

Replaster whilst the old suite is out.
