Re: HELP!! A plastic tile NIGHTMARE!!!
Chances are those plastic tiles were attached using a glue type of adhesive.
You can remove them ...... with some coming off easier than others .
You more than likely will have adhesive still on the wall. Sc**** it off and yes there will be damage to the wall surface.
When you have done the scraping use drywall compound to repair the wall surface. If you will be applying ceramic tiles then the patching doesn't have to be perfect just as long as it's somewhat level.
Then cover the repaired area with a primer / sealer meant for drywall compound .... this will help the future tiles to adhere nicely.
Hopefully this helps.
