Do I need to prime plaster before tiling?
Besides, do you need to plaster before tiling?
Tiling on plaster is ok, as long as your not fitting large format tiles. Still prime the plaster (obviously when dry) with acrylic primer. NOT PVA. Why plaster though..not really necessary.
Secondly, should drywall be primed before tiling? Seal seams on new drywall with drywall tape and compound and let dry. Prime the area to seal the new drywall. Prime an area larger than you plan to tile to minimize the cut-in work when you paint the rest of the room. Or, prime and paint the entire wall/room before starting with your tile project.
Also to know, can you tile onto bonding plaster?
You don't tile onto bonding - finish plaster or one coat plaster, yes, but not bonding or browning.
Do you need to plaster after removing tiles?
9 Answers from MyBuilder Plasterers Yes. Even if the tiles come off easily,what you will be left with will hardly be suitable for a paint finish. Its very unusual for tiles and adhesive to come off and leave a good,clean surface that only requires a bit of prep.
