We have had the kitchen ripped out and the new one is going in. The wall space under the wall units down to the base units has had all the tiles knocked off leaving the wall a bit of a mess. We wanted the wall re-plastering. We have been told that as we are having a full length glass splashback it doesn't need it and that the adhesive sticking the splashback on the wall will be good enough and we won't see any of the inferior wall behind.
Is this acceptable and normal practice ?

Thanks. ImageImageImage

I'm no kitchen fitter, but I wouldn't be happy having a splashback fitted on that wall without some sort of remedial work, some of those patches need at least filling/bringing forward.

Thanks for the reply, that is my feeling. Will make sure it gets plastered.

I agree with Wine~o, that certainly needs making good. It doesn't need to be silky smooth but should be a lot flatter than that.

Is it an independent kitchen fitter or a large company?

I've seen walls far worse than that tiled up without issue.

I'd just treat the area in the centre below the sockets with the obvious lump in it. The rest will be fine.

I think I'd prefer to see at least a plasterboard (or better a backer board such as Hardiebacker) dot and dabbed onto that wall before tiling. The Mirror Mate adhesive you'll need for a glass splashback works better on a clean, relatively smooth surface than that mess

Going with the majority, sorry Dave. Will feed this back to our builder and get it boarded over first.
Cheers.
