Hi, I'm new on here and wondered if anyone would be able to give me some advice? My kitchen has 3 tiled walls and I've just started taking these off...on the 4th wall is wood panelling (ugh!) That I'd really like to rip down however, it's been put up over tiles (which I believe were set into the cement of the wall when the house was 1st built) I know I'm going to have to have the 3 walls replastered where ive removed tiles but would just like some advice on the 4th wall. Is it possible to plaster over tiles? (I really don't think I could remove them without ripping half the wall down) Or is there another solution that would work better? Thanks

Seen it done with pregrit.

Whether it's recommended or not is another matter.....

On pregrit tub says it can be done. Although I've never done it I'm sure a few here have though.

I’d just take them off. It’s nit the find if the world if the wall comes down. Agree with everyone here but I just wouldn’t feel right skimming over tiles.... it’s icky

You ever done that malc . Ye a btave man if you have
we try NOT to use pregrit as the skim needs to go on to thick to cover.

What tiles are you fitting?

Reason being, is that you may be better boarding walls and tiling direct on to that.
