Removing emulsion from plasterboard before tiling

Post by James11 » Thu Mar 07, 2019 11:40 am

I'm in the middle of planning my bathroom renovation, I'm going to be fully tiling the walls.

The walls are all painted with emulsion which is in good condition with no peeling or cracking.

Is it necessary to fully remove it before tiling?

If so how is best to go about it?

I've Googled the subject but get alot of conflicting opinions, what do you guys think?

Thanks
