Remove Tile Tool

Our tried & true remove tile tools were just not cutting it.

In the past, sledgehammers, crowbars, chisels & hammers would have been enough but not for this bathroom tile.

These babies are thick!!!

After barely getting anywhere removing tile in this bathroom we called our favorite DIY expert, my father in law & he told us to get an air hammer with a chisel to connect to our air compressor.

We spent less than $40 removing our bathroom tile floor. The only expense we had was buying this air hammer chisel.

Dispose of the Broken Tile Floor

Rather than paying for a dumpster, we just added 2 bags of broken tile to our regular trash can every week until it was gone.

Once the bathroom tile floor was up we used a crow bar & hammer to take up the 1/4 inch plywood underneath the floor tile & grout.

Thankfully, there is a thick plywood sub-floor under the 1/4 inch plywood & it is still intact!

We plan on adding cement board on top of the plywood once the sink, toilet & bathtub are out so we can start bringing back pretty white tile this time.

Once the tile was up, we were able to break up our former bathtub stairway & see that it completely EMPTY underneath!!!

Why they chose to cover up all that precious floor space, I will never know!

And, our tile stairs are dangerous. I have slipped so many times getting out of out bathtub.

We plan on adding a walk in shower & separate bathtub in its place!

Our master bathroom feels so much bigger with just the floor tile out.

I can not wait to share more of our bathroom renovation with you guys soon.
