Can Aquabord be put on top of existing tiles in a bathroom? Some of the walls are solid but one is plasterboard. - Mary

Hi Mary, thanks for your question. Yes, that wouldn't be a problem. Providing that the surface is fundamentally smooth and has no loose sections, you can clad our panels to almost anything - including existing tiles. Make sure the surface is free from film, dirt, wax or any residue and remove any wallpaper or coverings. For tiles/painted surfaces, depending on how glossy the surface is, you may be best sanding the area so as to create a key for the adhesive. We would recommend 100% coverage of adhesive, so as a general rule of thumb two tubes of adhesive per large panel/pack of narrow panels should be sufficient.
