    Default chipped bath and a bad job

    ive just started my 1st private job for about a month now ive been asked to fully tile walls 15 sqm2 i have had to strip the orginal tiles off the wall which was a nightmare one wall has gone to the bear brick all the plaster has come of the sink and toliet are stuck the the wall dont know what with but i dont want to pull it just incase ill also need to plaster all the walls i stripped on wall off andthe orignal tiles were stuck on to plywood i want to know whether i ll have to rip the plywood or tile over if i tile over itshould i prime the wall and use bagged adhesive or can i use normal tubbed adhesive

    also with the bath i put a load of dustsheets on the bath and floorand i think i have done a few chips in the bath (acrylic bath) most of the chips are at the side of the bath not really noticeable the bath has been in there for a number of years and the chips are only noticeable caus i know where they are i have rung up a bath doctor who said he can come and have a look at it he reckonsit is repairable it probably is my fault though what should i do

    should i tell the customer straight away which is probably the best thing or should i keep the bath covered up till the bath doctor repairs it (the customer has moved out for a week) while i tile the bathroom
    ----
    any suggestions guys im abit worried what to do

    can you not dot and dab the walls with gyproc?AS FOR THE BATH get the guy to fix it and if ok then no need to tell customer.The plywood wall id either put a sheet of plasterboard on it or use a flexi adhesive and grout .

    It is wise to cover the bath totally with ply or plasterboard prior to knocking tiles off............A lesson learned here...you won't be doing that again will you... ...

    Get the bath doctor out and job done..........

    I'm in Preston too. Happy to come and have a look if you like.
    I've dot & dabbed many walls in the same situation. It's normally the cheapest and easiest fix. Ply is not good in a bathroom so I'd pull it off.
    Also, the loo and sink could be glued with silicone - a plumber's shortcut. Try sliding a hacksaw blade behind cistern or under pedestal - if it "gives" easily then cut away!
