Hello.....I have a home which is in Northeast Pennsylvania and over 100 years old. We are redoing the bathroom. It has lath and plaster for walls and about five foot of the wall from floor is covered in tileboard that someone glued to plaster.
We are debating whether to cover plaster with nice tileboard or wainscoating to keep it inexpensive. But when I try to peel off the old tileboard a lot of it sticks to plaster from the glue. I'm not comfortable glueing new tileboard over the remnants of the old tileboard and glue.
We were also debating whether to remove plaster......or plaster and the lath...........The plaster isn't in bad shape. Just crumbling a little near the floor from what I can see.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
