just bought a house where the previous owner covered 2 walls of the dining room with marble tiles and mirrors. I have removed several tiles and mirrors along with some chunks of drywall-some tiles have drywall paper attached to them when removed. my question is 1.) Is there any method to remove the tiles and mirror with the least amount of drywall damage? and 2.) will i need to install new drywall or can the areas be repaired? I saw an ad for a product called Gardz. would this product help?

thanks in advance for the help!

The areas damaged by the removal of the tile can be repaired with drywall mud. If you pull alot of the drywall paper off the GUARDZ will glue that back down to the wall before the mud is applied. Once you get the repair done you will need to prime the entire wall with a latex drywall primer.
