Hey Everybody! I’ve got a quick question on removing tile. I’ve been remodeling for 10 years and have removed countless tons of old mortar beds but never tile on backerboard. I’ve got to remove about 350 sq ft of floor tile that is installed over 5/8 subfloor and then 1/4 inch backerboard (Hence the reason the job is failing). I’m going to re-enforce the framing (currently 2×10 spanned 16ft), overlay the subfloor, install new 1/4 backer and new tile.
I’m at a loss as to the best method of removal. The old mortar beds simply break up but with the backerboard adhered to the subfloor, I’m not sure how to approach it. Any thoughts??
Thanks in Advance.
