There are two main reasons why you may be considering tile removal. The first is the small scale option where a number of tiles may have been damaged and are beyond repair so you need to replace that section or sections. The second is when you are doing a refurbishment or makeover and want to replace your entire tiled floor or wall. As with installation, DIY is doable but can also present issues, which is why we recommend using a professional tile installer – or remover – service such as Broomfield Tile Installation.
If you have a tiled countertop or backsplash, then this presents the trickiest situation when it comes to tile removal. The tiles may be mounted on a number of different surfaces including plywood or mortar. You will often find that larger amounts – or a stronger type – of adhesive has been used which makes removing the tiles very difficult. In some circumstances, the only way to remove them is by using a diamond bladed saw. This can be an intricate piece of work and, if needed, you are always advised to use a professional.
Porcelain tiles are another tricky proposition when it comes to removal. While you may think of porcelain as being delicate, porcelain tiles are actually very durable and heavy. When they were installed, it is likely that an extremely strong adhesive was used and manual removal is often difficult if not impossible. Our professional technicians have many years of experience in both installation and removal of porcelain tiles, and in most circumstances we will use special machinery to remove the efficiently without damaging the sub-surface.
Ceramic Tile Removal
While removing ceramic tiles is not as tricky as removing porcelain tiles, it is still an intricate task that is best carried out by professionals. As well as removing the grout and the tiles themselves, it is also usually necessary to remove some or all of the surface beneath the tiles and replace it. We have been called out to countless jobs where a DIY job has gone badly wrong. Because there are several permutations of tile type, adhesive type, and surfaces below the tiles, then removal of ceramic tiles is best carried out by a licensed tile installer with experience of working with ceramic tiles.
