drywall ceiling removal for bathroom remod

Hey, im tired of sitting on the throne and looking at this sorry excuse for a bathroom, so Im going to rip everything out and start over.JB's and MB's books are on ther way thanks to Amazon and Ive spent hours on Harrys website so it"s time to kick it in gear.MY one question, when I remove the tile and drywall in the shower is it necessary to remove the drywall from the ceiling and entire bathroom or can I just screw the backer board on top of the existing drywall through the studs.The ceiling is getting mosaic .This site rocks .Godbless the internet

Hi there, welcome! Gotta first name we can use? If the ceiling has no tile on it now, you can just leave it and tile it when you are ready.

what Mike said - but you do need to make sure the paint on the ceiling has a good bond to the drywall. I'm doing the same thing, and in the process one thing I found was that much of the paint in my house just peals away from the drywall in sheets. In my case it apparently is because the texture material under the paint didn't bond well and after 30 years has crystallized.
