It can be difficult depending on the type of tile you have. I took up all
the tile in my kitchen without a problem. I used a sledgehammer, a prybar,
and a floor scraper to make short work of it. The difficult part is under
the tile. In order to lay the new tile down you may need to grind down or
scrape off the thinset that is left on the floor. If you are lucky than
the previous owner will have laid the new tile over a vinyl slipsheet
making the thinset problem a non issue.
It was very easy to rip up the tile in my kitchen as it was glossy and
cracked very easily. I am not sure exactly what type of tile it was.
However, the tile in my bathroom as whole other story. It was an adobe
type tile that really didn't want to come up. It took a lot of sledghammer
wacking to clear that small room. I think it took three times as long as my
All in all it's a messy job, but I really enjoy demolition like this. It is
definitely a stress reliever. :) And on the upside you will save a lot of
money demoing the tile yourself instead of paying someone to do it.
