I`m redoing the walls in the bathrooms and main areas in a 10-15 year old Mick D`s. The existing walls in the bathrooms have 8x10 ....hmm maybe 6x10 (thin Dal) wall tiles up 5 feet off the floor. The remaining 3 feet to the ceiling is drywall and paint. I was thinking about installing 1/4 "Rhino over the drywall and then carborendom stoning the old tile and installing the specified 13x13 porcelain. Any thoughts .....Oh and bid the job 20,000 ( 2000 feet walls ) and they supply only the tile( they said i was high but I still got it). I start tomorrow ......

By the time you do that you could rip the sheetrock off the wall and rerock it.
Also there might be issues with the plumbing fixture if you increass the thickness of the wall if they plan on reusing the fixtures.

I agree with scott, I would be concerned about the plumbing connections. And I think it would be quicker to rip the old stuff out, It"s probably on drywall now, I would take a circular saw, set the blade at the thickness of the wall and make a cut above the wall tile, the hole wall should rip out in big pieces.

Thanx for the input guys.... The GC didnt seem to mind or be concerned about the pumbing fixtures or electrical items. I think I`ll go with Johns advice on this
and just add acrylic to the thinset. I say F&^% the plumber ...no I`m kidding
maybe we de the first one and take it from there.

If that's the case, then skim the walls with Keralastic first..that will give you a decent surface to bond to. Trying to spread pookey over glaze is a pain.

But spreading m-m-m-MASTIC wouldn't! Being it's not a wet area, so to speak, mastic shouldn't be a problem to use, and it would certainly give you less trouble, if you're going over old tile.

Yeah, but if you skim them with Keralasitic first, the mmmmastics sticks better too...and the tile don't slide around...much.
