I have been doing a lot of reading and it seems there is a lot of information out there that has sorta confused me, so I thought I would ask you guys and hopefully you can give me what I need to know.
I am going to be tiling a small bathroom that has sheetrock. (FIRST TIMER DIY’R) It will not be around the back of a shower/tub as its fully enclosed. But the wall that joins it I will be tiling with a tile that has glass and rock in it. It will only go 42 inches up the wall and will also go above the vanity.
Do I have to replace my sheetrock with backerboard and if so, what if I can’t cut it all out? My understanding the reason to replace the sheetrock is because of moisture. Is there something I can use that can seal the sheetrock?
This question I guess goes along with my kitchen project too. I just hate having to cut out my sheetrock and replace it if I dont have to BUT I dont want my tile to be falling down or mold and mildew behind my tile. Thanks so much for the advice.
