Were your drywall contractor and painter aware that the room was to be tiled, Shawn?

You know they donít care.
The spray at the base of the wall, if itís mud it should probably be addressed. If itís paint then never mind.

I do know that, Raymond, but If they'd been told not to mud/paint the floor I'd be inviting them back with their belt sanders.

As was said...if they didn't mix up their drywall mud from a powder, and used the premixed stuff, getting it damp will allow you to carefully scrape/wash it off as getting it wet again will cause it to soften. IF they mixed it up from powder, that won't happen. It's easy to check.

Most of those use some gypsum in them. Over time, the components of cement and that gypsum can grow a new mineral that can affect the bond. By isolating it between the two (why they recommended a latex based paint) would allow using thinset to then bond things. Because they added the stuff and it's fairly wide across the seams, by the time you ended up with at least a 2" overlap onto virgin Kerdiboard, you'd be covering most of the wall, it's probably better to just remove it all, or cover it with Kerdi membrane.

That bonding issue is the same for applying Ditra to the floor. A good primer should resolve that. I'd check with say Mapei and verify one of theirs would work in this instance, maybe EcoPrim Plus.

If the ceiling height is 8', in a shower, it's not considered a wet area.
