All right, I posted yesterday about my tile / plaster problem. And a reliable contractor friend advised I remove the plaster around my tub surround since I would spend more time making the surface level. Does anyone have any advise on removing plaster. He suggested taht I use a skill saw to cut a border around it and then remove it laths and all. Once I am done I will shim up the studs and install backerboard and then tile. Any plaster removal or safty advise I should consider would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
