    Hi all

    I need to put some plasterboard in my bathroom, for tiling.

    I currently have a red brick wall, that's it. The wall is the opposite side to where the bath and shower is.

    Can someone give me a step by step outline of what I need to do in order to get it ready for tiling. Do I dot and dab some moisture resistant plasterboard direct to brick wall? (What adhesive is best?) Do I use plasterboard screws? If so, what's best?

    Cheers everyone in advance

    You can either dot and dab moisture resistant plasterboard or for tiling I'd recommend a cement based tile backer. Being cement based it doesn't rot unlike plasterboard as grout isn't waterproof

    If you do use plasterboard buy plasterboard adhesive for dot and dab you don't need screws
