tile removal top tip

Postby welsh brickie » Mon Apr 14, 2008 10:57 am

when removing wall tiles people end up hacking hell out of the wall just
to remove them.
Use a flat scraper to remove the tiles only once removed use a steam
stripper to remove the adhesive,after a couple of minutes the adhesive
turns sloppy and then remove with a scraper

Good plan assuming the substrate is more firmly attached to the wall than it is to the adhesive!

Perhaps this should be posted in the tiling section?
