I have a new kitchen to install an, obviously, wife doesn't like the tiles
the previous owner had. I removed 1with a thin blade scraper and found that
the removal caused serious damage to the plasterboard. Anyone know of a
better way to do this ?
Score them all with a good hand held tile cutter then tap them with a hammer
to get them to break in bits. They should peel off a lot easier that way.
Or tile straight on top of them after you've cleaned all the grease off and
scratched the surfaces to key the new adhesive in.
This is often the case and depends a lot on the orig adhesive used.
Luckily it often is rubbish "fix & grout" if done by an amateur, so isn't
I've had very good results with SDS drill with tile-removing bit.
You wouldn't believe how fast it is and often the tiles come off whole...
I just did a bathroom where the tiles were put on properly and it had no
trouble there either.
You tend to get more adhesive left on the wall with this method which
requires separate scraping but at least the wall isn't damaged.
