The first step in removing bathroom tile is to take everything out of the room, and remove all fixtures. From there, a starting point for the removal process needs to be identified. Floor and wall tiles may be difficult to remove depending on the type of adhesive used. For floor tile, if the subfloor is damaged, it may need to be taken out also. Removing all existing nails and debris is the final step of this process.
The cost of bathroom tile removal depends on a variety of factors. The size of the bathroom is a leading factor in cost, as is the time required to complete the job. Some tile types may be more difficult to remove than others, which can also affect the price. When new tile is installed immediately after removal, the cost of the project is higher.
It’s imperative to use the services of a professional contractor when removing bathroom tile. Without the right experience and tools, the underlying structure can be damaged. This can lead to more hassles and expense for the homeowner. Experienced professionals can get the job done because they have the appropriate tools and knowledge to do so.
