Can you dry wall over kitchen tiles
Drywall is not a one-size-fits-all product. Many different types of drywall can be used in the DIYer’s home or business, including cement board, fibreglass insulation boards and knee knockers, which attach directly to studs with adhesive tape. The following article will cover everything you need to know about using these products and how they should be installed for the best results on your next project!
Always drywall over tile when it is cement, brick or stone under the tile. You will find that the tile has been installed over these materials in many commercial jobs. If you chip it off, then be left with an uneven surface pocked with mortar and glue. For this scenario, use drywall adhesive, otherwise known as ‘dry-walling, which I recommend using pl400 glue for better results than small tubes of household glues like PVA (Polyvinyl Acetate). We advise a hammer drill fitted with 1/4 inch bit and 2″ smack pins; one might also require steel door frames set up before installation begins depending on what type of job they’re doing!
Stand your sheet up against the wall opposite the one you wish to apply it and dab glue on its back. Put a small but consistent pressure on the trigger, touch nozzle to sheet for about 1 second, pull away and repeat with all of them in random places- put dabs where you would normally place screws when installing tile. Place paper over tiles, then lightly smack sheets down into location by hammering pins through holes that are drilled the dead centre of each piece.
After you drill and pin your sheet to the wall, there’s a simple trick that will make it easier. Place pressure on top of the drilling site while hammering in pins so they don’t bounce away from where they should be, or worse yet, break into pieces when bouncing off any tile behind them! Next step: use drywall nails instead, as these are more durable than standard headless smacks. Make sure not to attach too many at once – two every 12 inches is recommended, along with 5 evenly spaced out across each side (top & bottom) for stability purposes only). Now all left is taking care of those pesky corners – follow this same pattern until you’re done!
The decision of what your door frame is made out of will affect whether or not you remove the tile behind it when installing new flooring. If it’s wood, take a hammer and nails to get the old stuff off before putting in all that hard work on your shiny new floors. However, if steel is more up your alley, just make sure to leave at least an inch gap between any trimming with tiling for stability purposes—less smashing equals less hassle!
If you want to have a nice, rattling sound when slamming your door, then be sure the frame is made of metal. But if it doesn’t matter, just put up L bead, and that’s all!
When boarding a cement wall, one can use the same steps but with shorter pins or choose to use an electric-powered powder gun. I have used both methods myself and found that gas-powered guns are more efficient when it comes time for finishing off the job.

I like to use a hammer drill with a chisel tip end for removing the tile from concrete brick or stone. I prefer 3-inch tips, but it really depends on how big your tiles are. You can also try using different angles and see which one is most effective, depending on what type of grout you have around each piece of tile!
Removing drywall can be a difficult job, especially if you have never done so before. Instead of the standard technique that requires lots of power and leaves ragged edges on your walls, try using an actual hammer or chisel with less force to ensure no damage is caused during the removal process.
The tone of voice should be helpful. Begin by locating a stud finder which will help you to identify the location of your wall’s studs and mark them using tape or temporary marking paint. Once marked, use a level to draw lines on either side for the drywall sheet to stay intact because it may break out slightly due to its weight when being removed from between two pre-existing walls while still connected at one end as if hanging off both sides with only 3 inches clearance (or less!). Chop all around each line twice, then cut down these lines quickly with an easy chopping device like a plastic knife that won’t dull easily! Now comes what I think is the fun part: smash away any leftover paper pieces left behind without
