455Re: Removing tile
- Nov 14, 2008Beth,
It depends. If you are not going to put new tile back up, I would do
what they call a "skim coat" of sheet rock mud over the brown areas.
Basically, you just take a wide putty knife and sheet rock mud and
apply a very thin coat over the brown areas. This way your walls are
flat and even. If you are going to use put new tile back up using
grout, there is no need to put a skim coat on, because the grout will
fill in the uneven areas. Hope this helps.
