I need to replace the tiles in my bathrooms. It's been a pain finding
a reasonable price and a good contractors to do this. Plus it seems
that it's not that difficult. Here are some reasons I have not
attempted it. Please provide your recommendations.
1. The current ceramic tile was glued directly to the plywood. No
Duroc. I would like to put Duroc down as all contractors mention. I'm
not too handy with nails, etc.
2. Because of number 1 the floor height would rise. This means the
tiles at the bottom row of the wall (not sure what they're called)
would have to be removed, cleaned, cut and put back on.
3. Also because of number 1 and the fact that my wall to wall vanities
are installed on TOP of the tile when the house was built there is a
partial tile sticking out from the vanity. Recommendations I have
heard for this are to leave the partial tile and glue or whatever a
new partial tile to it. OR somethin like that. IF not then the
vanities, plumbing, etc gotta come up.
So not you see why I'm hesitant. If not for the floor height issue I
would probably attempt this.
