Follow following steps -

1.Decide where to remove the grout
2. Scrape the grout away with a utility knife
3.Try a rotary grinder instead.
4.Remove grout until the spacer lugs are visible.
5.Chisel tiles away from the wall.
6.Break the tile if necessary.


If the tiles are grouted, you will have to clear the grout away first. There are inexpensive tools designed specifically for grout removal. After removing the grout, use a small pry bar or a similar tool to pry the tiles away from the wall. Most likely, though, if the tiles were installed onto drywall, the drywall will be damaged during removal. Fortunately, drywall is relatively easy to replace. Once the drywall surface is ready, new tiles can be attached with tile adhesive or mastic. Regrout and seal the tile around the new tiles. *If the new tiles are natural stone they will be very porous and will need to be sealed and dry BEFORE installation.

You will need a chisel and a hammer for this. Will have to cover bath tup, shower base, anything that may chip from the fallen tile pieces. Start hammering the chisel behind the top tile, or smash the corner of a tile and try to remove it to be able to start. Be careful not to brake the plaster, this is the biggest problem when removing wall tiles. Keep hammer the chisel, and remove bit by bit all the tiles. Patch with plaster if big areas will get damaged in the wall.

I have noticed blue mold in my basement coming from behind the area that has wood paneling, but also around the entire edge of the floor even where the walls are concrete (both interior and exterior...


This mold is from dampness in the basement.

Often this is a result of no vapor barrier installed when the insulation is put into the walls. Moisture is allowed to seep through the walls and gets into anything, even concrete.

The other problem may be from a lack of weeping tiles outside the house.

When the contractor formed the foundation walls, he was supposed to install weeping tiles to keep moisture out from outside.

Most older houses don't have this, and I'm seeing it more and more.

I would advise contacting a general contractor and getting some advice from them. You may have to have weeping tiles installed, which consists of tearing up the ground around the foundation to do so.

Then you may have to remove the flooring and wall panels as well as the drywall to install a vapor barrier.

Good luck.

We are staying in a rented home with a spa bath. Attached to the spa bath is a hand held shower. The showerhead rests above the bath but the pipe coils somewhere between the tiles and the bath and can be...


The grout between tiles is just for filling the gaps. The tiles are glued to the wall, usually with "thin-set" mortar. Unless that mortar is in very poor condition it is unlikely that you would be able to remove that single tile without breaking it. The wall behind the tile might be water-resistant drywall (a poor quality situation) or it should be cement-board. I suppose it's possible that there is already a hole in the wall behind the tile, but the hole would be smaller than the tile, and assuming 4 inch (not large) tiles, this is a poor choice to gain access to the pipes. The usual access is through the wall from the other side. During initial construction, a removable access panel is sometimes provided (depending on local building codes and whims of the builder). If there is no access panel, and the other side of the wall is drywall, then cutting a generous hole, and fashioning a plywood panel (with trim around the edge to cover the gap between the drywall and the plywood) is a pretty standard and simple approach (depending on your skills). As an alternative and for more info, here's a link describing how to install a plastic snap-in access panel. Good luck! http://www.diylife.com/2008/06/23/plumbing-access-panel-installation/

How do i fit an electric shower to a tiled wall


You may be access the pipes from the other side of the wall containing those pipes. so rather than have to cut into your tiled wall, you will be cutting into whatever is on the other side of that stud wall.
