Backsplash

Hi,

I understand this might not be the right place to ask, but I found this forum through a Google search and you all seem like a nice bunch so thought I'd fire away. We had a self-adhesive backsplash which we removed and now there is adhesive and quite a bit of brown paper showing. We want to replace it with another self-adhesive tile and I'm wondering if I can install it directly onto the brown paper. Sorry it's not ceramic tile, but I appreciate any advice.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Brown paper meaning the core plys of drywall paper?

Usually "self adhesive" needs near perfect surface for good adhesion. Not how I'd describe delaminated drywall paper. I'd probably comb adhesive in addition to what's already on there.

Yes, I think it's the layer under the top layer of drywall from what I read, but I am not 100% certain. You think I am good to add a bit of extra adhesive and just slap it on top of that without doing anything else? There are a few sections like that and I'm wondering if I need to smooth them over first.

Might be faster to just cut out the old sheetrock and put up some new

Welcome, Jethro.

Might help if you'd post a photo or two of what you're left with there. You can use the paper-clip icon above the Reply dialog box to attach photos from storage on your computer.
