Removing tiles from wooden floorboards?


Postby mariaharrison » Wed Apr 29, 2009 8:08 pm

I'm about to start to remove tiles from a wooden floor. Has anyone any ideas of an easier way to do it. i suspect it will be difficult to remove them as the adhesive is the flexible kind suitable for tiling on wooden tiles.
Please help!

mariaharrison,
Use a hot air gun to soften the adhesive - it will make removal a lot easier.

You may have to break the first one out, and then get a flat bladed tool, go in as horizontally as possible, and lever up. They may break but keep repeating, the process, but take care with the broken edges, they cut.
Best wear good gloves.

An easier way than what?

Ceramic tiles or vinyl tiles?

Floorboards or plywood?
