In response to Re: tile over plaster
: I am removing the old masonite tub surrond from a bathroom. I have an older house in Calif. with plaster walls. Question is do I have to remove the plaster and hang greenboard to apply tile or is there another way to waterproof the substrates without removing the existing plaster walls.

Check out some tile web sites, one good one is the john bridge forum, I am sure they would recommend cement board as an underlayment instead of greenboard...it also kinda depends on howfar out the underlayment would go with respect to the tub, although cement board does come in 1/4inch, I'm not sure this would be acceptable for tile...good luck
