We have a firpelace insert that she wanted removed...of course the tile is
fireplace box by 1" or so.....so I cut the grout carefully pulled the tiles
and sheetrock off without damaging the tiles. Now she has changed her mind,
a woman's right you know, and wants to keep the box.
Any suggestions of how to remove the tile (glue) from the
sheetrock......only four tiles...I have a heat gun BTW
If it was attached to drywall, it was most likely done with mastic
(yellow-brown glue). I have soaked the mess in a bucket of water over night
and managed to recycle a few tiles where I had no other choice. Soften it
and then use a razor blade scraper to shave off as much as possible from the
back of the tiles.
Use a the same scraper to remove glue from the wall and install with a bit
more glue than before to fill the void. Butter the back of the tiles
instead of spreading the mastic on the wall.
