I was only supposed to remove bottom 2 rows of tiles but i found that the skimmed plaster has debonded from the wall. could i just prime and use a skim of rapid over the top....then tile when dry? or do i get a plasterer in?

treat as bonding and not tile it I believe. If tile weight is ok I'd say replaster and come back when dry to tile.
normally just over board but obviously you can't looking at picks.

If you're in a rush to get the shower back perhaps try knock a little bit back see where it ends and see if you get enough space to overboard with thin plasterboard or whatever.

Trying to get a plasterer in is a nightmare. I'm now looking at Youtube on how to plaster a wall. The things we do to get the job done!
 
Q

Qwerty

Hack off to brick/ block and then board it to fit flush with the existing walls...... like this I did a couple of weeks ago........

Just an update.
Got myself a bottle of PVA, plastering hawk and some multi finish. Will watch a few plastering videos and then tackle it on Monday. Got to do it this way because the shower tray is rebated into the wall so much that the new screen barely fits on the old tray. The shower screen brackets have to go in first then I tile upto them. I know it's not the right way but the alternative is to smash out the old tray.

I'm doing the plastering for free plus the cost of materials. Customer happy and I get to practice plastering!

How did you get on with your plastering?
20170515_102513.jpg
Not as easy to do like the pro plasterers!!

3 coats of PVA and 2 skim coats.

I tried to practice polishing but plaster was drying fast. Got it good enough for tiling over. 2.5 hours from start to driving away. Pretty pleased with the result.
