Hi all.
Am currently replacing bathroom wall tiles. Walls are a mixture of stud and masony. Taking off the old tiles resulted in replacing the old plasterboard with STS tile boards. All done. Coming to masony wall behing the toilet, a little of the plaster has come away from this wall. It says the boards can be fixed to block/masonry and seems to suggest with tile adhesive. Would this be sufficient to hold tile backer boards. Have seen people do this to fix to concrete floors but not walls. Hardie boards seem to have fixings for this but STS dont (they are different i know)
Thanks
John

You wont be able to fix the boards with just tile adhesive, as plaster can only take 20kg per metre, so by the time you have tiled the board as well, you will be well over the maximum weight. I would patch the wall up then mechanically fix the boards with plenty of plugs and screws. Or alternatively use one of the other types of board with their mechanical fixings.
