DIY Floor Tile Rip Out.
Considering DIY floor tile rip out to save money and then hiring a tile setter later to do the tile installation? Don’t do it!
Tearing out tile flooring to install new tile may sound like a quick and easy project, but it is not. Floor tile rip out is nasty, dirty work that will give little sense of accomplishment and probably save you little money in the long run.
As a Port St. Lucie tile installer I often get called to bid tile jobs started by DIYers who have removed, or started to remove, the old tile themselves. Their thinking was that their effort would, in the end, result in getting the complete tile job done for less money. Often, they are wrong. In a tile installation done property, every phase of the project must be completed perfectly.
Don’t let good enough be enough.
What is often “good enough” for the DIYer is not good enough to produce a well laid tile floor. Take a close look at image shown of a tile installation in progress . Note the condition of the concrete where new tile has not yet been laid. Until your work produces that level of preparation, your work is not complete.
What was done once must often be done again to be finished properly. DIYers rent equipment to do their work and then the tile setter repeats the process again to get the surface as clean and flat as necessary. Not a good plan.
A better plan is to get your tile rip out and installation estimate first and then consider your options. Contrary to what you my think, tile rip out is not a major cost factor in a tile remodeling project. If, after getting the estimate you still want to DIY, then talk to the tile installer about what tips and tricks you might use to make your job and his easier. It is to his and your advantage to see that everything goes as smooth as possible and an impressive, enduring tile floor is the result.
Quality Work is My Hallmark.
