Removing tiles from original tiles

Postby TIY » Fri Jun 19, 2009 12:00 pm

Hi there,

I would like to remove some kitchen tiles that have been laid over the originals without damaging the originals. How possible is this for a relatively novice diy-er?

Any response most welcome

If there is a position where you can see the edge of the tiles and the adhesive between them you could chiselling the top layer off. You will soon know whether removal is going to be practicable.
