Damaged drywall after tile removal

9 years ago

Sorry I posted in the wrong place. Not sure how to remove this post.

I removed the backsplash in my bathroom. After removing all the old tile adhesive, the drywall is now down to the brown paper and there are a few places where the gypsum is exposed. I plan on adding a new backsplash.

From what I've read, I think the best option is to seal the drywall with Gardz and then patch the holes and skim coat before applying the new tile. Is this correct? Or do I patch the exposed gypsum, then apply Gardz and then skim coat to a smooth finish before applying the tile?

Any help greatly appreciated.
