Ceramic floor tiles removal

Ceramic floor tiles removal

I have some renovation projects ahead of me and one in particular requires a little advice.

 

My Kitchen ,dining and hall way are currently ceramic tiles but there are a lot that have lifted our rather loose.

 

I expect that I will use a jack hammer with a spade bit too lift the tiles throughout and get a concrete floor grinder to come in and clean up the surface.

 

Can anyone suggest any alternatives for either removing the times off the concrete floor and getting the surface ready.

Hi @Scott12,

 

I'm sure there will be Workshop community members keen to help you with this project. What flooring are you planning to use after the tiles are removed?

 

You might find this advice useful - How to remove floor tiles. I will add the video below.

Hi @Scott12,

 

Just checking in to see if the information I provided was useful? 

 

If not, you might want to provide a photo of your floor tiles so community members can see what you are working with and provide more specific advice for your situation.


Many thanks,


Jason
