Hi I’m Mark Donavan from HomeAdditionPlus.com. And today, I’m starting a bathroom remodeling project.
Where we’re going to first start is this ceramic tile shower. We’re going to basically remove all of the ceramic tiles, so that we can put in the brand new style and pattern of tile. And we’re going to take everything out down to the very bare and standard walls. And we’re going to remove the fibrolite shower painting and put a full blown shot remembering panel line here. So we’re going to do full customs from the top shower.
So before we begin removing any tile, we’re going first remove the shower head. It’s so nice we removed the shower handle from the shower faucet therein. So now, we’re removing the cover plate from the shower. So I'm just removing a couple of screws and then this will all peel away. Now that the two screws are removed, you can just pull the cotton plate right off. Okay. So this isn’t new to demolition projects, so we’re going to use a hammer and a couple chisels and a flat bar. I’ve also put some cardboard down at the bottom of this shower pan. Is this fiber glass shower plan? I’m actually planning to removing this as well. But if you want it to retain your shower pan, exist the shower pan, you may want to put some cardboard in to protect from any falling tile.
When removing tile, it’s very important to wear a goggles, besides that you can see these goggles you added protection on the sides. I recommend you all use this application for the project, and a pair of leather gloves, so you don’t cut your self. So all I’m using here is a hammer and a chisel here to start out. We’ve been getting the bull-nose edge tile out and tapping on the side and lifting underneath. As you can see, it’s coming well and fairly easy.
Anyway, you continue this process all the way around until you effectively remove all the tiles. And once you’re done, we’ll remove the marker board and then finally the shower pan itself. So I’m using a flat bar here to get some of the tiles in the middle of the shower wall. It works clearly well. You just put in a low angle and tap with the hammer to pill out the tiles. For faster way to remove the tiles, the best work will across. And then using a flat bar, just work your way down, quickly peeling back the tiles. You want to make sure don’t tear the ceiling at all. What do I do is my going to use my utility knife and make a cut along the edge of the tile where it’s attached to the ceiling or caulk comes in contact with the ceiling. There’s a bit of the caulk here and we step this, we should be able to prevent the top from pulling away and ripping the ceiling texture.
So we’ve worked our way around part of the shower installer. We’ve removed one side. We’re now working our way down to the second side. And we’re just continue to work our way the rows of tile to wrap up this job. As you can see, it’s a very dirty, dusty job. You definitely want to make where you got is all fine and a heavy pair of work glass so you don’t get cut on a ceramic tile. So it does that we’ve removed all of the old ceramic tile from this three by three shower stall area. The next phase of this project will be removing all the backer board and then installing new backer board. We mentioned the new shower pan and eventually, the new ceramic tile.
