Hi,

I am currently renovating my bathroom and will be having tiles on two of the walls, where a shower will sit in the corner and a bath along the same wall. The shower is going where the door currently is. We are planning on using 30x60x10mm porcelain tiles.

Currently one of the walls is back to studs as it was lath and plaster and I am going to use aquapanel on that wall. The other wall is currently plasterboard and skimmed and is in good condition. I Want to use aquapanel on the other wall as the shower is going there to be sure of water resistance and weight of tiles. I have started to remove the plasterboard wall but am I just creating more work than is required?

Can I just overboard the existing plasterboard with Aquapanel? Has anyone done this before successfully?

Thanks in advance

Lu

Yes and Yes.
Just make sure you get good sound fixing of the Aquapanal and the the existing wall is also firmly fixed.
As the weight of your tiles are going to be fixed to this.
 
Thanks for the quick reply. As my walls are pretty sound whatwould you do in my situation: overboard or to pull down and start afresh?

What size screws would you use To go through the 12.5mm aqua and 12.5mm+3mm board and then into the stud?
 
Also one more question when you overboarded aqua in the past I'm guessing that you did not bother trying to locate and fix into the noggins but just secured to the studs? The wall I'm fixing to has no noggins
