    Default Covering wall tile

    I did a demo on one bathroom which had a wet bed tile. It was a big mess and I need to do a second bathroom over too.
    Can I cover over the old tile with wainscote using an adhesive or will the moisture prevent that from staying in place? What fasteners would go thru to the tile without ruining the face? Suggestions for other ways to fasten or USE solid surface materials?
    I would chip off the bull nose and replace with a shelf.
    Sounds like a hassle but would rather not tackle the demo.
    Thanks.

    it can be done. liquid nails makes a panel adhesive that will stick just fine to the tile. only problem is that you sometimes have to put together a network of studs and pieces of plywood to brace it until the adhesive dries. it's going to depend on what you use for wanescoting, some will stick right of the bat others will pull away if the adhesive isn't hardened.

    Besides the mess, how did the first job come out in the end? If it was satisfactory, do the same thing for the second job. Full satisfaction is worth the mess IMO.

    I do not have experience about that but if you need full satisfaction so call a experienced person or consult with building company they will guide you well.
