Can I install beaded-board paneling over ceramic tile?

Can beaded-board paneling be installed over an existing ceramic tile kitchen backsplash that's in excellent condition? Would construction adhesive be sufficient to adhere it?

Yes and no. You can install something over ceramic tile, but I would not recommend it. Depending on the area I would not recommend beadboard. If you are considering an area near a stove or other cooking surface, I would recommend formica instead. Any wood surface near a stove would not be good and a wood surface is not easy to clean, when you consider the texture and the grooves. I sugget you remove the tiles.
