Removing Floor Tiles and Adhesive From Concrete Floor

Postby Kb599 » Thu Mar 05, 2020 3:33 pm

Hi All,

I'm hoping to remove floor tiles and tile our kitchen (Just under 8sqm) in the next few weeks.

The existing tiles are around 15 years old installed on a concrete floor which was levelled prior to tiling. They have held up fine over the years,no cracks etc but noticed some of the tiles sound hollow when tapping.

My question is moreso related to the adhesive under the existing tiles as im concerned I'll have a tough job removing from the concrete floor to obtain a flat surface for tiling.

What would be the best way of removing the tile adhesive from the floor?

Im on a tight budget unfortunately and do not have much of a range of tools currently.

I will have a helping hand removing the tiles and my tiler friend will help with the tiling job itself.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
