Removing concrete lumps from a wooden floor


Postby RGL » Sat May 16, 2009 7:06 pm

I am removing the tiles from a kitchen floor as the tiles are all cracking and I want to replace them with a vinyl floor. Under the tiles are wooden floor boards and I am having great trouble getting some of the lumps of concrete off the wooden boards. If anyone has done this before and has any tips how to remove these lumps, I would be very appreciative

That would probably be because they weren't laid properly if direct onto floorboards. If they used concrete rather than flexible rtile addy I'm not surprised its cracking. Are you sure it's concrete?

You need one of these: http://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?mid=12 ... 0802_l.jpg plus one of these: http://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?mid=12 ... 8255_l.jpg coupled with a large quantity of ignorance. You'll most likely damage the boards a bit but as you'll be overplying to lay the vinyl on it shouldn't make much difference.

The alternative is rip the whol lot up and redo the floor with ply.
