A leaky toilet resulted in some mold on the vanity and I have elected to
build a replacement. I want to reuse the one-piece faux stone top/sink.
But in order to remove the top, I need to remove a matching faux stone
4 inch wide backsplash.
Any idea of what was used to affix the backsplash to the walls and how I
might go about removing it without damaging the wall?
If it was formica, I suspect it was glued to the wall with silicone or
panel adhesive. If you are having a new backsplash it should be able to
cover damage incurred in the removal and possible patching. If it was
cultured marble, the same rules apply.
YOu might also try to get a thin braided wire (picture hanging wire)
with a wood handle at each end started in the space between the wall and
the backsplash. Saw the wire back and forth or up and down to cut
through the glue.
