Mosaic tile

Posted by Bob Z on May 10th, 2000 02:27 PM

I have had some plumbing work done in the bath tub which left a 1' area the width of the tub viod of plasterboard. The entire three walls and the ceiling are covered with mosaic tile. I am going to replace the tub and want to get rid of that ugly tile. I started to remove some of the tiles (1' X 1' area) however, the meshing and adhesive mostly remain, with some of it comming completely off. The questions I have are: 1) What would be the easiest and cost economical way of remodeling this area.
2a) Should I continue to remove the tile and replace with a tub surround and 2b)if so are there surrounds that will cover the total height of the tub area with a matching ceiling?
3) Should I just fill-in the area that I removed and cover area with a surround? (see 2b above)
4)Should I cover the area in surround of typical hieght and can I then tile over the mosaic remainder & ceiling?
5) Should I just remove all walls and start over?

Any help, suggestions, tips etc. will be appreciated.
