    Im in the process of updating my bathroom,got a new bath etc....Ive taken the tiles off and fount the walls underneath arent to great...my main worry is the edges of the plasterboards.There are strands of fibre sticking out the edges that were under the tiles,so when i removed the tiles the strands have become very fraid and slighty damaged the plasterboard in the corners of the walls and slightly on the ceiling.....Is this a disaster or could a good plasterer get around this easliy?

    That sounds to me like the remains of old scrim- tape that was used on the joints and corners.A plasterer would sort that out no problem. The main thing is the condition of the plasterboard now that the tiles have been removed.Are you going re-tile it all again or skim it? Either way,it doesn't sound too bad.Get a plasterer to come round and have a look, and get some advice.
