Her indoors wants new countertop.
New one is 40mm thickness whereas old one is 28mm.
This will mean removing kitchen wall tiles.
Is this a simple job or will I end up with half the plaster off the wall(s)
as well as the tiles!
Or worse still, half the tiles and plaster off and the rest immovable!
There is no answer to your question as it could be relatively easy or it
could rip your walls apart! I think you will have to assume that you will
lose some of the plaster off the wall but if you are re tiling this part
again not so bad as the tiles will cover any defects.
I have just recently re tiled and I just filled in the worst of it and then
tiled on top of it. To get the tiles off I made my own tool after trying
several bolsters type tolls etc. I got an 18 legnth of 1 inch tube and
flattened the end of it, this was ideal for thumping in behind the tiles to
ease them off.
I am not a tiler but that is my views
Once you get the first tile off, it should be a simple case of getting
behind each tile with something and tapping with a hammer. Each time
Ive done it, often they just "ping" off the wall complete.
I wouldnt worry about it.
